MARYVILLE, Mo. - As Northwest Missouri State University's women's basketball team prepares to compete in this week's Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Tournament at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Bearcat fans are encouraged to purchase their tickets from Northwest. Fans also are invited to a Bearcat celebration sponsored by the Northwest Alumni Association.

The Northwest women, the tournament's No. 1 seed, will play Truman State University at noon Friday, March 4. A first-round Northwest win would have the Bearcats playing in the 6 p.m. semifinal game on Saturday, and another win places them in the finals, beginning at 4 p.m. Sunday.
