After an exhibition contest agains Division I Duke Friday night, the Northwest Missouri State men's basketball team was named the preseason No. 1 Tuesday morning.

The NABC released their first coaches poll Tuesday with Northwest receiving 15 of 16 first-place votes.

The Bearcats will look to repeat as national champions in 2018, but will do so without the likes of Zach Schneider and Anthony Woods due to graduation.

Northwest does return the Division II Player of the Year, Justin Pitts.

The Bearcats return to action Nov. 10 in St. Joseph against Upper Iowa.

Temperatures start off in the 40s Monday morning with a chance for some scattered rain showers and possibly a few snowflakes. Once we get past rush hour a cold front will push though and start to drop our temperatures and increasing wind speeds. Because of this, our highs will only be in the 20s tomorrow and wind gusts out of the north will be between 15-20mph. After Monday we will gradually warm back up to highs in the 40s for the rest of the week.
