After sweeping rival Central last Saturday, both Men’s and Women’s Simpson Storm Basketball squads will look to keep that momentum going against Luther tonight in an Iowa Conference Doubleheader.

The Women were defeated by Luther 70-52 in their first meeting this season on the back of 20 points from guard Taylor Jenks and four players in double figures, while the Storm could only muster one. The Luther girls squad is tops in the Iowa Conference with an 8-2 record, while the Storm women are 6-4 and in fourth. The Men put away Luther easily 76-59, shooting 40% from three point range. Simpson will need to win if they have any shot of catching conference leader Dubuque, who is two games ahead of the Storm at 8-2 with four games remaining. The women will tip off at 6, the men at 8, and full results can be found on KNIAKRLS.com
