The Simpson Storm women’s and men’s basketball teams travel to Storm Lake today for a pair of pivotal conference tilts with Buena Vista.

The Storm women are coming off a win at Central earlier in the week to bring their conference record to 5-3, and currently sit in a tie with Coe College for third place, a game behind Luther for second. Noreen Morrow is closing in on history for the Storm, as she is just four points shy of 1,000 overall for her career.

The Storm men have to recover from their loss to rival Central on Wednesday, a game that threw the conference standings into flux. No team has a better record than 6-2, and there are currently 5 teams within a game of first place including the 5-3 Storm and the 6-2 Beavers.

It is an evening doubleheader today, with the women’s game at 5pm and the men to follow, and both games will be broadcast live on our KNIA2 stream, as the Knoxville Coaches vs Cancer game will be on AM 1320 and FM 95.3 KNIA.
