Twister Sisters Before the Storm: Bring on Kansas II

The regular season finale.

Last Time Out

Iowa State picked up a huge win against a scorching hot West Virginia team. 5 players were in double digits led the Cyclones, most notably Ashley Joens with a cool 20 points and 6 rebounds. The Whirlybirds also went 13 of 27 from long range and 14 for 14 from the free throw line. Efficiency.

About Kansas

Not much about the Jayhawks has changed since Bill Fennelly escaped Allen Fieldhouse with a win 2 weeks ago, aside from they have lost 3 more games since then. They’re still last in the Big 12, but they are competing on the back half of the season and at least making games close (sound familiar?). While they might not be winning games, their numbers are climbing the ranks in the Big 12, up to 7th in both points per game and points allowed per game. KU can sneak up and steal a win, they won’t roll over and die.

Opposing Player to Watch

Holly Kersgieter is still the leader for a young Jayhawk squad, averaging 17.5 points per game to go along with 7 boards per game. Last time against the Cyclones, Kersgieter poured in 18 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. She is capable of dropping a 30 piece any given night, and needs to be held in check all throughout the night.

What Will Happen

The Cyclones get a challenge from KU, but the ‘Clones pick up a win to clinch 4th place in the Big 12.

Iowa State University - 72

University of Kansas - 64
