WHITE-SHIRTED tide of lchabod cagemen storm downcourt
to set up a scoring play against St. Benedict's defenders.
Basketball: short end of the season
lchabod basketball fans-normally a faith-
ful, spirited group of people-endured with apathy
the 1965-66 season as a luckless cage squad teeter-
tottered through a tough 25-game schedule. It
was a struggle to keep the Washburn end of the
seesaw on the upswing. At season's end, the record
books showed a mere six wins against 19 losses-a
sad obituary for a plucky, determined group of
athletes who just couldn't come up with the right
combination at the right time. Sad, too, for the man
who ended a 17-year coaching career with the
1966 season. Head mentor Norm Short announced
his resignation at mid-season, after serving six
years as WU basketball coach.
The cold, statistical record of six wins and 19
losses does not accurately represent the entire sea-
son, which did have its high points. The season re-
sulted in more than a dozen near misses, in addition
to six scattered victories. Three of the contests
went into double overtime play, and the maiority of
the games were decided by margins of five points
or less. But the hard facts that delivered the telling
blows were tough league competition, particularly
on the road, and Washburn's lack of experience
against more seasoned teams. The long, long story
of a short, short season follows:
Two long desperation lump shots that found
the mark and some clutch free throw shooting in the
final three minutes helped Doane, Neb., shade
Washburn 78-77 in a double-overtime contest. The
Blues fought uphill all the way after missing 13 of
their first 14 field goal tries.
At the Blue Ribbon Tournament in Kansas
City, the lchabods lost another overtime battle in
the opening round against Southwest Missouri
Baptist, 66-62. After a cold start, Washburn fought
back into contention against St. Cloud, Minn., but
the big bucket never came. Fighting for third place

in the consolation round, the Blues lost 69-64 against a team which had
the big man inside and the hot shooter outside when it counted. Freshman
reserve Ron Berkholtz led WU scorers with 15 points. Radar-accurate
gunning from Dave Tenpenny and Sam Shipstead fired the lchabods to a
97-70 win over Peru, Neb., State-the first WU victory of the season.
Tenpenny counted 28 points and Shipstead T8 before the home crowd,
but it wasn't a two-man show by any means. Washburn's other starters all
finished in double figures as well. The Blues chalked up another win
against Yankton, 'S.D., 66-61, as free throws by Denny Douglas, Dave
Tenpenny, and Ron Ford staved off a tough defensive attack. The tide
turned against the WU squad when they met a tight Wayne, Neb., State
zone press. Center Sam Shipstead canned 28 points in the 84-75 -contest,
but it wasn't enough to top Wayne State's high percentage shooting.
