The preseason predictions have been made, the scrimmages and the exhibition games are over, and for the Missouri State Bears basketball team, it’s time to play ball.

The Bears take on Arkansas-Little Rock at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday at JQH Arena.

This season comes with much more anticipation on the part of many fans in the Ozarks, as Dana Ford’s team is the preseason favorite to win the Missouri Valley Conference.

The only other Bears team to win the regular season Valley title was the 2010-11 squad,  coached by Cuonzo Martin.

News Director Don Louzader visited with the second-year head coach of the Bears to talk about the preseason ranking, MSU’s tough non-conference schedule, and what fans can expect to see from this team that’s loaded with talent and depth.
