Malay Bouaphakeo added eight points for Storm Lake, now 0-3 overall. Billie Blanchard cleared eight rebounds, while Frederiksen and Overturf each had seven. Storm Lake committed 27 turnovers in the game.
"We are improving in different areas each game," Storm Lake coach Stacey VanDerSloot said. "One area that we need to focus on is turnovers. Offensively, we are struggling at getting the ball inside to our post players. I asked the girls to concentrate on rebounding and we outrebounded them 34-23."
