Dreamer scored 29 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and blocked three shots as No. 1-ranked Northwest moved to 7-0 and dropped the Prairie Stars to 5-1. Dreamer made seven of his first eight shots from three-point and land and finished the game 10-of-13 from the field, including 7-of-10 from distance.
Dreamer (Lincoln, Nebraska) is shooting 61.5% from the field, while averaging 9.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.
Northwest will open MIAA play this Thursday at Lincoln and Saturday at Central Missouri.
