A solid defensive effort in the first half was overshadowed by a 54-point outburst in the second half, as the Central College women’s basketball team saw Simpson College steadily pull away last night for a 94-71 victory. The Storm seemingly couldn’t miss a basket in the second half, and out-shot the Dutch 53.4 percent to 32.9 for the game.

The Central women were led by Sarah Paulson, who tallied her third double-double this season with 13 points and 13 rebounds. The Dutch fall to 5-11 overall and 0-6 in the Iowa Conference and return to Kuyper Gymnasium for another league doubleheader on Wednesday night; this time against Luther College.
