Simpson Basketball Faces Tough Test Hosting Wartburg

Posted: Saturday, January 13th, 2018 at 5:50 am

With a pair of ranked teams coming to Indianola this afternoon, both the women’s and men’s Simpson Storm basketball teams will have an uphill battle to pick up Iowa Conference wins as they host Wartburg.

The Wartburg women are ranked 2nd in the country and are undefeated on the season, while the second place Storm fell to Coe College earlier this week snapping a burgeoning win streak. The Storm men have yet to lose in 2018, and trace their win streak all the way back to December 18th of 2017.

The men dispatched Coe on Wednesday, and currently sit at 4-2 in the conference, just a half game back of Wartburg for 2nd place.

The action this afternoon can be heard live on AM 1320 and FM 95.3 KNIA, with pregame starting at 1:45, and tip-off at 2pm. Andrew Swadner and Rick Wilson will be on the play-by-play.
