MARYVILLE, Mo. - Northwest Missouri State will be searching for its first road MIAA win while Truman will be attempting to win its first conference game of the season when the Bearcats travel to Kirksville, Mo., Jan. 10 for a 5:30 p.m. meeting with the Bulldogs.

Northwest (6-7, 2-4 MIAA) has won nine of the past 10 meetings with Truman (3-11, 0-7 MIAA), but dropped an 84-82 contest in the last game played in Kirksville Jan. 23, 2008.

Meghan Brue has scored double-digit points in the last 12 games and is averaging 12 points per games in her three career games at Pershing Arena. Her 12-game streak is the longest active streak in the MIAA and second-longest among South Central Region teams (Britney Jordan, Texas A&M-Commerce - 16 games).

One more block will move Rickeya McElroy up the season program records. She leads the Bearcats with 22 blocked shots and would tie Danae Wagner for eighth in program records. A pair of blocks would tie McElroy with Sarah Hemminger for seventh all-time.

The personal career marks keep climbing for Micaela Uriell, who picked up her first career double-double with 11 points a career-best 10 rebounds against Missouri Western Jan. 7. Uriell had just set a career-best with nine rebounds the week before at Pittsburg State. In the past six games, she is averaging 10.3 points and 5.7 rebounds.

Northwest is holding opponents to 27.1 percent from beyond the three-point line, the best mark in the MIAA. Truman is at the bottom of the MIAA statistics with only 3.21 three-pointers per game.

The Bearcats were shooting an MIAA-best 76.6 percent from the free-throw line 11 days ago, but have shot 62.2 percent in the past two games and dropped to fourth in the MIAA with 74.4. The Bulldogs are on nearly the opposite track, when after shooting 11-of-22 against Southern Indiana Dec. 22, have shot 82 percent in the four games since.

Scouting the Bulldogs
Truman has lost five straight games and eight of their last nine under new Head Coach Michael Smith. Truman's first seven opponents of the MIAA season have a combined record of 26-11.

Senior Georgia Mueller leads the Bulldogs with 16.5 points per game and 7.2 rebounds per game. In six career games against Northwest, she is averaging 15.3 points and 9.7 rebounds and has a field-goal percentage of 72.7 percent.
