Northwest Bearcats

Press Release

Feb. 1, 2010

A Great Win!

Austin Meyer, Northwest Assistant Men's Basketball Coach

Hello again everyone! We picked up the biggest win of the season on Saturday against the third-ranked Fort Hays State Tigers! We want to thank our great fans who were loud down the stretch and helped fuel our team to victory. Fort Hays now has a seven-point loss at Kansas State and a three-point loss to the Bearcats! The game was an instant classic (Though it probably won't be seen on ESPN Classic).

The game saw many lead changes and huge plays down the stretch. Two of our freshmen played a combined 50 minutes in the game! The win was very important for our postseason push and the key will be how our team handles the success. We hope it will give us the confidence to win some HUGE road games this week.

Wednesday we travel to "The Good Life" (or so the Neb. border sign states') to face Nebraska Omaha, who currently sits third in the MIAA. Following that we will head to Pittsburg, Kan., to face Gene Iba in John Lance Arena for the final time. Road games in the MIAA are always difficult and we will need to pack an effort like Saturday to take with us this week!

Hello Center Court Cat Club Members!! Don't forget the post game socials we have arranged following the Missouri Western game (Feb 13) & Central Missouri game(Feb. 20). Please contact myself at or call 660-562-1328 if you plan to attend or would like more details. If any basketball alumni would like to attend, please let me know.

This week's shoutout goes to our 'road warriors' who we have recently seen on the road: Jeff & Gina Smith, Al & Nancy Wilson, Kori & Allison Hoffmann, Orrie Covert, Rick Carter, Dr. Jasinski, Steve Sutton, Dan Edmonds, Rod Auxier, Bob Lade, Mark Clements and Coach Rosewell. We appreciate the support from everyone sacrificing some mid-week sleep to catch us the last two Wednesday's!!

Go Bearcats!!
