Sedalia, MO -- The Iowa Western men's basketball team returned to the floor less then 24 hours after opening the season with a loss to Sunrise Christian Academy, and responded with a solid performance handling an outmanned Missouri Valley JV roster with a 105-55 victory in the third game of the State Fair Roadrunner Tip-Off Classic.
The Reivers "shared the wealth" in many ways as 12 members of the squad scored in the contest. Five Reivers scored in double figures; and 12 members of the team added at least one assist as Iowa Western had a remarkably unselfish game; dishing out 31 assists of the 39 field goals for the team from Council Bluffs, IA on Saturday.
In the Championship of the State Fair Classic later that evening; Sunrise Christian continued to show it's prowess as it handled the host team from Sedalia with a 91-71 victory to finish the weekend unbeaten.
The Reivers will see the Buffaloes from Sunrise Christian later in the season, much later in the season actually; as they will face off once again on February 13th at Iowa Western.
In the more immediate future, Iowa Western opens up it home portion of the season this Tuesday evening (11/6/18) against North Iowa Area (NIACC). Tip-off between the Reivers and Trojans is 7:00pm CST from Reiver Arena.
