After trailing for the entire game, the Peru State men's basketball team made a valiant rally at the end of their contest. However, that rally came up just short as they fell to the visiting Missouri Valley (MVC) Vikings 78-75.
 
Peru State trailed by as many as 26 in the second half only to see a three-point shot just miss near the end which would have tied the game.
 
With the win, MVC improved to 3-3 overall and 1-1 in the Heart of America Athletic Conference (Heart). The 25th-ranked Bobcats fell to 2-2 on the season and 1-1 in conference play.
