♦ Missouri State will look to snap a four-game losing streak in Saturday’s contest against the Bulldogs, which will mark the first-ever meeting between Missouri State and Bryant.
♦ Over the course of the last 2 ½ games, Missouri State’s defense has allowed only four goals in the last 175:18. The strong defensive stand began when the Bears shut out Bucknell over the last 35:18 of their game on Sept. 7, and continued last weekend when MSU allowed a combined four goals to Indiana and Robert Morris.
♦ The Bears rank third nationally in defensive saves (5) a year after being the Division I statistical champion in the category. Sophomores Liz Young (San Diego, Calif.) and Leah Reitmayer (Vista, Calif.) account for MSU's saves with three and two, respectively.
♦ With 64 career points, Hillary Lawless remains five points away from tying for fifth place on the school’s all-time scoring list.
