    Default MIAA/GAC Game Thread - 1/26/17

    Since I'm sure some of you guys up north might be curious as to what's happening in the MIAA and the GAC tonight in terms of who might be regional watching, here are a few of the "important" scores to pass along.

    Women
    MIAA

    Central Oklahoma 78
    Pittsburg State 74
    - With the win, UCO moves into a tie for first place in the MIAA at 9-1 and 18-1 overall (17-1 D2). Don't look now, but could we possibly see UCO host the women's regional? Meanwhile, PSU drops to 9-2 in conference play and 17-3 overall (16-3 D2)

    Lincoln 68
    Fort Hays State 81
    - FHSU trying to keep their chances of making the regional alive. FHSU improves to 6-4 in MIAA play, 15-4 overall, and 10-4 in D2.

    GAC
    Harding 79
    Southwestern Oklahoma 80
    - Harding dropped their first conference game of the season, falling to 11-1 in GAC play, 14-3 overall, and 13-3 in D2.

    Arkansas Tech 77
    Northwestern Oklahoma 57
    - With a win and a HU loss, ATU now climbs to a game out of first place. Tech improves to 10-2 in GAC play, 14-2 overall, and 14-2 in D2.

    I'll update the men when those games are over.

    Good news for Northwest Missouri. Solidifies position as 1 seed for regional.

    I just looked up the NWMSU schedule. Haven't been in a single-digit contest since the MIAA opener. Only one game decided by four points or fewer.

    3 game road trip for Northwest starting today no gimmie. I expect us to take care of business but MW always gives us a battle in St. Joseph and Lincoln will be a test in Jefferson City. Lindenwood not as good as last year but still tough.

    Don't worry, we give the Bearcats permission to lose a few. Better to have the regional in Marshall, anyways!

    NW was only up 47-46 with about 15 minutes left in the game but put the game away with a 14-0 run. JP even got to rest for the last 2-3 minutes after 11 assists and 13 pts. Zach S. was 7-11 from 3 pt range and finished with 23 pts.

    I don't see anyone beating Northwest in the MIAA. CentralMO just finished 4-0 against the stretch that Northwest is starting (@ Lincoln & Lindenwood, hosting Emporia & Washburn). Northwest is clearly better than the Mules. Can Northwest be the first team since Hays in 1996 to run the table?

    NW beat Lincoln 80-75 in Jeff City tonight to improve to 12-0/20-0. Next stop St Charles to take on Lindenwood.

    Bearcats were up 14 with about 3 left, Lincoln kept throwing in 3s at the end. NW calmly knocked down almost all of their free throws. Virdure had 50, he is a hell of a player. 20-0 feels preeetty good.

    NW can clinch the outright title w/ a win over Washburn AND a loss by UCO to UNK or Fort Hays AND a loss by UCM to Missouri Southern.

    Up 4 with 5 to play, NW has pretty much sewed up the MIAA championship.
