At 5:30 p.m. on Feb 2, the University of Nebraska at Kearney will tip off against the Washburn Ichabods in Lee Arena. Washburn has slowed down lately, going 4-4 after starting 9-3. The Ichabods have won as many games on the road as they have lost, with four games in each category. The Lopers are in a better position, having momentum from a two game winning streak. Despite the apparent advantage, the Ichabods have already faced the Lopers once this season, and they came away from that game with a victory. In the face of a late season stumble, Washburn must pull it together and come home with a win to avoid tripping across the finish line.
