SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Obediah Church scored 13 points and blocked three shots, Alize Johnson added 12 points with 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season, and Missouri State held off a second-half Wright State run to win 66-50 on Tuesday night.

Trailing by 18 at halftime, the Raiders closed to within 53-48 after Hall capped a 12-4 run with 3-pointer with 7:51 to play. But Church scored four straight to spark a 13-2 run that included his dunk with 1:31 left and the Bears won going away.

Ryan Kreklow's 3 sparked a 20-4 run capped by Church's dunk and the Bears led 34-16 at halftime.

Justin Mitchell scored 18 points and Jaylon Hall added 10 for the Raiders (7-5), which saw its three-game win streak end.
