Qt: ,. Wil' L' I ' il 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 118 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

I I U 0 O Compeutlve sp11'1t PICVHIIS 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. TWO points rip the net from an under-the-basket maneuver by playmaker Sam Shipst
