Both Storm squads will travel to Loras tomorrow to round out their Iowa Conference portion of their schedule. The Men are looking for the season sweep after a 78-60 drubbing they gave the Duhawks in Indianola back in January.

The Storm survived 25 points from Mirko Grcic by countering with 21 points from Sam Amsbaugh and 19 from guard Ryan Skaar. Seeding is at stake for the Storm in the Iowa Conference tournament, a win would guarantee them the second seed but a loss could throw a wrench into the works as three teams are currently tied just one game behind.

The women are also looking for a repeat performance; Noreen Morrow would score 24 points in just 18 minutes in an 81-53 blowout win. The women have clinched a spot in the Iowa Conference tournament, and could potentially go as high as the second seed or drop down to fifth with a loss. The women will tip off at 2, the men at 4 and the game will be broadcast live on AM 1320 and FM 95.3 KNIA with Rick Wilson on the call.
