Milestones for many: Bears secure 700th Division I win by 35

A historic night for Missouri State’s men’s basketball team ended with a win over the Drake Bulldogs, who have a 16-10 record with nine losses away from home.

The Bears defeated Drake 97-35 to secure the program’s 700th win as a Division I entity.

“That is a great honor,” head coach Dana Ford said. “I’m just happy that we can give the effort that we should when we wear that jersey, and I thought that our effort was really good tonight.”

Senior Keandre Cook, who averaged 23 minutes in the previous three games, scored 19 points against the Bulldogs.
