Let’s take a quick look at how Northwest Missouri State got here and what’s left on the slate.
No. 1 Northwest Missouri State (21-0)
The Bearcats have already built an impressive resume, beating the defending runners-up and champs on consecutive nights to open the season. They survived a very tough MIAA schedule in January, but a full month of games remain. The Bearcats quest for an undefeated stays alive, now the question is simply whether or not they can carry this streak alive through February.

Northwest Missouri State only has two teams with winning records in the MIAA remaining. The problem with that is that they are the two teams tied for second in Lincoln (MO) and Washburn, both sitting at 15-5, 8-3 and looking like real tournament contenders. The remaining six games are played against teams that have a combined 17-27 record, with two games apiece against Central Missouri and Southwest Baptist who are 11-9 overall on the season.
Here’s who the Bearcats have left:
|Feb. 7||at Lindenwood||11-12||4-7|
|Feb. 9||at Lincoln (MO)||15-5||8-3|
|Feb. 13||vs. Central Missouri||11-9||4-7|
|Feb. 16||vs. Southwest Baptist||11-9||5-6|
|Feb. 21||at Central Missouri||11-9||4-7|
|Feb. 23||at Southwest Baptist||11-9||5-6|
|Feb. 26||vs. Missouri Western||10-12||4-7|
|Feb. 29||at Washburn||15-5||8-3|
