Chris Kendrix had 21 points, seven rebounds, and five assists for Missouri State (10-14, 6-6), which has lost four in a row to the Purple Aces.

Evansville had an 11-2 run and took a 40-27 lead at the half. The Purple Aces then scored 10 of the first 14 points out of the locker room, capped by a Brown 3, for a 50-31 lead. Evansville coasted from there, never letting their lead dip below 15 points.
