Ichabod men ride 51-point second half to 84-62 win over Pitt State

The No. 8-ranked Washburn men outscored visiting Pittsburg State 51-31 in the second half to pull away for an 84-62 MIAA victory over Pittsburg State Saturday at Lee Arena.

Washburn, which improved to 10-1 overall and in the MIAA, led by just a 33-31 margin at halftime before dominating things after the break.

“Basketball’s funny sometimes,’’ Washburn coach Brett Ballard told KTPK radio. “I don’t know that we played all that much different in the second half. Obviously, we played better.

“I thought we got some really good looks in the first half that didn’t go. Offensively, (the second half) I think we kind of got in a flow and I just love that our guys are staying aggressive.''
