U.S. Senators Roy Blunt and Josh Hawley announced that the Senate unanimously approved a resolution honoring the Northwest Missouri State University men’s basketball team for winning its second NCAA Division II national championship.
“The Bearcats were unstoppable this season, earning another national championship and finishing the year with a perfect record,” said Blunt. “Congratulations to the players, coaches, and fans on another great season. I look forward to seeing what this team can accomplish next year.”
“Missouri is proud of the Bearcats’ fantastic season, and we congratulate them on everything they were able to accomplish as a team,” said Hawley. “The effort and determination by these young men does not go unnoticed. Keep up the great work and good luck next year!”
In March, the men’s basketball team won its second NCAA Division II national championship when it defeated Point Loma, becoming only the fifth program to win a national championship and finish the season with a perfect record.
