I want to start off by mentioning that the MIAA Tournament for men’s and women’s Division II basketball kicks off this Friday at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, MO!The Bearcat men’s basketball team did qualify for the tournament, and with a record of 21-5 will be going up against Southwest Baptist with a record of 18-11 on Friday at 8:15 p.m. Northwest’s point guard DeShaun Cooper is a 5’7” junior from St. Louis, MO. Cooper does a good job at leading the team and is an outstanding basketball player! Last season as a sophomore Cooper was named second team All-MIAA, he started in all 26 games, he led the team with the most points in one game with 31 points against Central Missouri and against Missouri Western, he led the team with field goals made in a game with 13 against Missouri Southern, he tied with teammates Narayan and Haake for most 3-point field goals made in a game with five, went five-for-five 3-pointers made against Central Missouri, led the team with most free throws made in one game with 17 against Missouri Western, and scored 425 points during the season! That is a really impressive record for his sophomore year, especially considering many sophomores don’t even receive much playing time at all.
Unfortunately for the Bearcat women’s basketball team, their season is over, but they are already setting goals for next season! The Bearcat women’s basketball team ended their season this past Saturday against Missouri Southern.
However we still have the men’s team to cheer on, so I hope that all of you Bearcat fans make it a priority to cheer on the Bearcats this Friday night! And remember if you want to listen to the game you can always go to the Northwest website to do so. All you have to do is click on athletics, men’s basketball, schedule, and then by scroll to the bottom where you will see Listen to the Bearcats LIVE
Well the semester is half way over and it hasn’t really seemed to slow down any! I have a test coming up in Anatomy and Physiology and a research paper that I am trying to perfect all happening in the next two days! But I am really excited because I just had an interview with the Bearcat Boogie Dance Studio to be an instructor. The interview went so good that I was asked back for a second interview/audition! Also I applied to be a camp counselor at Camp Quality. Camp Quality puts on many programs for cancer patients and gives children with cancer the opportunity to spend time with other cancer patients while participating in all types of activities. Camp Quality also puts on fundraisers to raise money for patients and their families and they also take donations as well! Donations are actually encouraged, so if you would like to check out their website page or donate you can go to http://www.campqualityusa.org/nwmo/Home.aspx. But anyways I am really excited to hear back from them because I have wanted to do this for a couple of years now and it would mean so much to me to have this opportunity!
I hope everyone enjoys the quotes and has a wonderful rest of the week and a good weekend!
