An early season NCAA Division II showdown takes play Tuesday night in Maryville when 6th ranked Truman State visits number one and defending National Champion Northwest Missouri State. The Bulldogs are 4-0 after sweeping a pair of MIAA teams in Pittsburg State and Missouri Southern over the weekend. Jeff Horner’s team will play six D2 opponents away from home before a game at Pershing Arena….
Northwest Missouri State is 4-1 with an upset loss to Sioux Falls. The Bearcats have won three of the last four NCAA Division II national championships played (2020 was canceled). This matchup nearly came in the Division II Elite Eight last March, but the Bulldogs lost a one-point heartbreaker to Flagler, Florida to prevent a Final Four game with Northwest. You can hear Tuesday night’s game from Bearcat Arena on Superstation KRES and centralmoinfo.com starting with the Truman Tipoff at 5:45. Brad and Hank will have the call.
