No. 12 BYU Basketball will finish up a stretch of road games at Missouri State on Saturday afternoon.
The BYU Cougars head in to the matchup with the Bears off a disappointing loss at Utah Valley on Wednesday. The Cougars were defeated in overtime, 72-65. That was the first loss of the season for BYU, bringing them to 6-1 on the year.
The Cougars and Bears have met twice previously, but the last time was in 1987. Missouri State won that one in overtime, 62-61. BYU has never played at Missouri State, though.
The Bears are 4-3 on the year and last played on Wednesday at Illinois State. Missouri State lost in overtime, 79-74, so both BYU and Missouri State are coming off of OT losses. That game against Illinois State opened Missouri Valley Conference play for Missouri State.
