The Northwest Missouri State Bearcats were back in the MIAA championship Sunday against the Washburn Ichabods from Topeka,
taking place in Downtown Kansas City at Municipal Auditorium.

Northwest had already beaten the Ichabods twice earlier in the year, and were looking for the sweep as they met up with them again in the conference tournament championship.

In the first half, Northwest out shot Washburn 56 percent to 40 percent from the field. As it was the same story in the second half, the Bearcats out shot the Ichabods 50 percent to 48 percent.  

At half time the score was 41-28. Washburn came back within two points with 1:00 minute to go in the game 75-73.
The Bearcats ultimatley pulled way and won by six with a final score of 80-74. 

This is Northwest's third straight conference tournament title, and now will host a first round regional home game leading up to the national tournament.

A couple of disturbances will be moving through the area starting early Sunday morning through Monday evening. These systems have been pretty hard to pin down and are still developing. The first system will cause snow showers starting Sunday morning and it will hang around overnight. Then system two moves in on Monday morning and could continue through the evening hours. Right now it looks like we could be seeing 2-5 inches of snow, with larger accumulations in counties to the south.
