Twister Sisters Before the Storm: Bring on Kansas

First meeting of the Big 12 bird schools this season.

Last Time Out

Iowa State got back on track after losing 4 of 6 to get back into the win column after a 92-81 victory over TCU. Lexi Donarski led the Cyclones with a career-high 32 points to go with 5 boards and a pair of assists. 22 second half points from Ashley Joens boosted the Clones to a 51 point second half effort to boost ISU to the W. Kristin Scott added 17 points and 9 rebounds.

About Kansas

The Jayhawks have been victims of 4 postponements (1 cancellation) in conference play, their first of the four being against Iowa State back in January. Kansas has won just 2 of their last 11 contests. Despite that, KU is 7th in the Big 12 sitting at 7-11 (3-8). Their offensive and defensive points per game see them as a middle of the road team, ranking 6th and 7th in those categories. They won’t score a lot of points, so a hot shooting night is bad news for KU.

Opponent Player to Watch

A bright spot for Kansas is sophomore guard, Holly Kersgieter. She leads the Jayhawks with 17.3 points per game, ranking 10th in the conference. She can shoot it from just about anywhere, even more important that she makes a lot of her shots. Kersgieter is the focal point of the Jayhawk offense and is what makes their offense roll.

What Will Happen

KU is no chance for the fighting Bill Fennellys. Clones in fo’.

Iowa State University - 75

Kansas University - 58

Pick Three

The freshman combine for 40 points

Kristin Scott notches a double-double
