High-Scoring Simpson Proves Too Much for Central Women

Central College freshman forward Nicole Strasko recorded her second consecutive double-double, but the outcome was the same as the first time, as the Central women’s basketball team was defeated 93-60 by Simpson College yesterday. Strasko came off the bench to put up 11 points and 10 rebounds for the Dutch, who were led on offense by 13 points from Kelsey Schuring. Turnovers proved to be Central’s undoing yet again, though, as the Dutch gave possession back to Simpson 37 times – three shy of the school’s all-time high. The loss drops Central to 2-16 overall and 1-8 in the Iowa Conference.
