SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Missouri State guard Marcus Marshall, the team's leading scorer, is out indefinitely after tearing the meniscus in his right knee during a weekend overtime loss to No. 5 Wichita State.
The sophomore will have surgery Wednesday to repair the tear. Bears coach Paul Lusk announced the move on Tuesday, three days after a 72-69 home loss in which Missouri State led its unbeaten conference rival by as many as 19 points in the second half.
Marshall `s average of 14.3 points per game leads Missouri State (12-4, 2-2 Missouri Valley), which visits Indiana State on Wednesday . Marshall was the conference freshman of the year last season. He had already missed four games with a sprained left knee.
