This will be Head Coach Brook Kohlheim's first matchup against Cleveland State as the head of the Storm Women's Basketball program. "We are excited for the opportunity to challenge ourselves against some D1 competition right here in town," said Coach Kohlheim. "I think there are plenty of take-aways from our win at Wayne State that we are looking to challenge ourselves with, part of that is consistency with our energy and effort. Cleveland State is going to test us in ways that we haven't seen yet this year, so I am very excited to see how we will respond."
