Twister Sisters Before the Storm: Kansas Pt. 2

Aiming for another season sweep.

Last Time Out

The last time the Cyclones played was a blowout win at home over TCU. The last game was another big one for Morgan Kane, she scored 17 and connected on her only shot from behind the arc. A double-double from Ashley Joens with 22 points and 11 boards was enough to propel the Clones to a 56-84 thumping over TCU.
