Northwest Ends Nonconference Schedule With Blowout Win Over St. Mary (Kan.)

MARYVILLE - ( stats ) Sophomore Hunter Henry posted 21 points and eight rebounds to lead Northwest Missouri State men's basketball to a 77-36 nonconference victory over St. Mary (Kan.) tonight at Bearcat Arena. Northwest, who is ranked No. 23 in the latest NABC poll, held St. Mary to 28 percent (13-of-47) shooting and had 41 rebounds compared to just 16 by USM.

After a jumper by USM's Steven Morgan at the 14:30 mark, the Flames did not score a point for nearly five minutes. During that span, Northwest scored eight straight points and extended its lead to 24-5. The advantage grew to 51-16 after the first 20 minutes.
