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.

More rain fell across the area Saturday night and the threat for rain will continue throughout the day on Sunday but the good news is that most will stay dry. Throughout the day, expect more clouds than sun but we could see a little more sunshine during the afternoon. An advancing cold front could bring a stray shower during the afternoon. Highs today are going to be in the 80s.
