MARYVILLE, Mo. - Northwest Missouri State stays alive in the D.II NCAA men's basketball tournament as they beat Southern Nazarene 70-59.

The Bearcats next match-up will be against an MIAA opponent in Missouri Southern, a team they know very well. The Bearcats got swept by MSSU last season but have returned the favor by beating the Lions in both match-ups for this season.

Northwest senior forward Joey Witthus had 29 points on the day helping lead the Bearcats to victory.

Tip-off for the regional championship game between MSSU and NWSU is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday at Bearcat arena.

A weak cold front that moved through Tuesday will lead to some cooler weather for Wednesday. We are also seeing an increase in cloud cover this morning so expect a mostly cloudy sky as we start the day. It is possible some of these clouds break up throughout the day so there is the chance of seeing some sunshine. Highs today are going to be on the cool-side getting into the upper 50s.
