The Washburn Ichabods lost 60-62 in the Thanksgiving Classic Hosted by Downtown Ramada Inn. The Ichabods played against the Truman State Bulldogs and led for most of the game.

The Bulldogs, like their namesake, held in there and managed to pull down the Ichabods in the last few minutes. Tyler Geiman led the Ichabods with 18 points scored and sophomore Jonny Clausing was strong under the net, scoring 10 points, eight rebounds and a team high of four assists. 

The Ichabods take it on the road to Pittsburg State, in the opening round of MIAA play, and hope to break their two-game losing streak there.
