Washburn University’s men’s basketball team has a lot to feel good about as the Ichabods prepare to open the 2021 portion of their schedule.
The Ichabods are a perfect 6-0 in the always-tough Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association and have climbed to No. 5 in the most recent National Association of Basketball Coaches Poll, the Ichabods’ highest ranking since being ranked No. 2 in the 2012-13 season.
But while Washburn coach Brett Ballard, whose team is scheduled to return to action at 2 p.m. Saturday at Northeastern State (Okla.), is proud of what his team has accomplished thus far, he may be just as proud of the attitude the Ichabods have displayed throughout their early-season success.
