With both Simpson Storm Men’s and Women’s Basketball Squads losing at Loras on Saturday, seeding for the IIAC tournament was thrown a little into chaos.

The Storm Men played themselves into hosting a home game in the first round of the tournament facing Buena Vista. They demolished the Beavers just two weeks ago at home 74-57 with four players in double figures, but recent results for the Storm show that as their last three opponents have all split with the Storm. The winner of the game will head to Wartburg. The Storm Women’s squad was not fortunate enough to host a home game in the opening round of the tournament, they are the fifth seed and have experience with the Beavers after defeating them 71-64 just one week ago. Both Storm squads will tip off at seven, full results will be on KNIAKRLS.com
