Washburn (5-1) won its fifth straight game, the longest running win streak in Lora Westling's two seasons at the Ichabod helm.  

The Bears, who played the game as an exhibition, knocked down two baskets in the first 2:38 of the game to keep it at just a 6-4 Washburn advantage, but the Ichabods finished the first quarter on a 12-0 run with Aniah Wayne knocking down a pair of 3-pointers in that stretch.  

Washburn started the second quarter eight of eight from the floor en route to a 38-point period, with the home squad hitting 14 of 18 overall and seven of 11 from 3-point range while holding Barclay to seven points in the quarter.

A 17-0 run in the middle of the quarter sparked by back-to-back triples by Mackenzie Gamble and Gabi Giovannetti spurred the burst as the Ichabods went into the locker room leading 64-15.  

The Bears came out of halftime scoring the first two points but would not score again until the 4:56 mark in the fourth quarter in what became a 46-0 run for Washburn, resulting in a game high 93-point lead.

Three straight points by Emporia product Rebecca Snyder midway through the fourth quarter completed the 46-0 run and in the final 5:13 of the game Barclay cut down on the lead by three points, with the Ichabods winning by 90.  

Washburn shot 51.3 percent from the floor (41 of 80) and scorched the nets from deep, going 18 of 40 from behind the 3-point arc.

The Ichabods dished out a season-high 29 assists and came away with 21 steals in the game.

Giovannetti led the Ichabods in scoring with a career-high 21 point on seven of 11 shooting, all from 3-point range, in just 18 minutes of action.

Aubree Dewey had 15 points and notched the first double-double of her career with a career high 10 assists while also coming away with four steals.

Wayne added a career-high 19 points with five 3-pointers and came up with four steals. Yibari Nwidadah had a double-double in just 17 minutes with 10 points and 12 rebounds.

Gamble and Madelyn Amekporfor also finished in double figures with 12 and 11 points, respectively.  

All 11 active Ichabods played at least 13 minutes in the game with 10 scoring at least five points.
