What we learned at 2020-21 media day

The Missouri State men’s basketball team hopes to put the 2019-20 season behind it as it enters Dana Ford’s third year as head coach. 

Ford has a roster full of newcomers while having key returners in Gaige Prim, Isiaih Mosley and Ja’Monta Black for this upcoming season. 

The Bears were picked to finish sixth in the Missouri Valley Conference this season. From the sounds of it, they seem to think they’re going to have a lot more fun than that.

Here’s what we learned from MSU’s virtual media day on Thursday:

The Bears feel like they’re going to have more fun this year

It wasn’t a secret that the Bears had their struggles during the 2019-20 season. A team that was picked to win the conference fell well short of its championship expectations while finishing in the middle of the Missouri Valley Conference. 

The team never found a rhythm. The ball wasn’t being shared much and a collection of highly touted newcomers never looked like a team.

Missouri State head coach Dana Ford directs his players against Valparaiso at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament, Saturday, March 7, 2020, at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis.

Going into this year, the Bears are now picked to finish near the middle. But the Bears say the ball is moving and that they’re enjoying themselves a lot more going into this upcoming season.

“Our ball movement is way better,” Black said. “It’s just fun playing with this group of guys. That’s what’s different from this year and last year — it’s just way more fun on the offensive and defensive end. We’re just way more enthusiastic and it’s just better playing with these guys, honestly.”
