A lot had gone right for the No. 5-ranked Washburn men's basketball team over its first eight games of the 2020-21 season.
A lot went wrong for the Ichabods In Saturday's Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association game at Missouri Western, with Washburn dropping a 74-67 decision to the No. 22-ranked Griffons to fall to 8-1 on the season.
Washburn lost 6-foot-9 junior Jonny Clausing to a foot injury less than a minute into the game and never did find its shooting touch against the Griffons, also 8-1 on the year, with the Ichabods hitting 19 of 64 field goal attempts overall (29.7 percent) and going 6 of 31 from 3-point range (19.3 percent).
