2012 MVC Basketball Tournament, Evansville Vs. Missouri State: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The 2012 MVC basketball tournament continues on Friday with four pretty important games as the conference looks to decide which team will get an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. One of the four games in Day 2 of the tournament will feature the Evansville Aces taking on the Missouri State Bears in the nightcap, scheduled to tip-off at 9:25 ET.

Both teams finished the conference season with identical 9-9 records while their overall records stayed similar as each team won just one more game than they lost during the regular season. Evansville swept the season series, but considering both games were decided in overtime, Friday's game should be close.

The Aces can likely expect quite a bit out of junior wing Colt Ryan if his success during the regular season was any indication. The 6-foot-5 junior averaged 20.5 points and 4.3 rebounds while shooting an impressive 43 percent from beyond the arc. Missouri State was led this season by senior forward Kyle Weems with team-high averages of 15.4 points and 7.1 rebounds per game, but his efficiency left a bit to be desired as he shot just 41 percent from the field.

The winning team will advance to the tournament's semifinals to play the winner between Friday's game featuring the Drake Bulldogs and Creighton Blue Jays.
