SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Anthony Downing, Marcus Marshall and Christian Kirk scored 15 points each to lead Missouri State to an 82-49 victory against Malone University in a Hoops for Hope Classic game on Wednesday night.

Keith Pickens had six points and 10 rebounds for the Bears (2-2).

Cory Veldhuizen scored 13 points and David Goodwater 10 for Division II Malone (2-1).

Downing had four 3-pointers, and Marshall was 3 for 3 from behind the arc.
