The No. 1-ranked Northwest Missouri State University men's basketball team opened MIAA play with a 72-45 road win over the Missouri Southern Lions at the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center in Joplin, MO.

Bearcat senior guard Diego Bernard tied a career high with 25 points. Bernard buried 11-of-17 shots from the floor, handed out four assists, grabbed three rebounds, recorded a steal and swatted a shot in 30 minutes of action.

Northwest returns to action Saturday on the road against the Pittsburg State Gorillas. Tip is set for 3:30 p.m. at Lance Arena in Pittsburg, Kansas.  Catch all the action on KXCV-KRNW and the Bearcat Public Media App.
