Game Time...Northwestern College will go head-to head with the No. 6 ranked Dakota Wesleyan for the second time this season at home on Wednesday Night with tip-off scheduled for 8:00 p.m. The 14-10 Red Raiders are coming off an impressive win on the road over the Doane Tigers last Saturday and currently sit tied for sixth in the GPAC with a conference record of 7-9. They look to avenge a tough loss from the two teams first meeting back in January. DWU sits atop the GPAC with a 14-3 record in the conference and a 24-3 record overall.
