Prior to Northwest Missouri State's meeting with Central Missouri, Rich Wright held an intimate meeting with his coaching staff in the locker room.
The group discussed the path the Bearcats have been through since former Adam Dorrel departed for Abilene Christian in December 2016, the same month the program captured its record sixth NCAA Division II National Championship.
In terms of expectations, Northwest slightly fell backwards since the championship. It fell twice in the regular season in 2017 and 2018, a drastic change from the undefeated record produced in 2015 and 2016.
