Washburn senior Logan Stutz became the first 4-time recipient of the MIAA’s player of the week award Monday, which means there’s no better time to give the senior from Kansas City his due here at Sunflower Slate. The brother of WSU center Garrett Stutz, he’s torn up the MIAA this year to the tune of 20.2 points and 6.9 rebounds per game and seems like a lock for All-MIAA honors and has a definite shot at being an All-American. The 6-foot-9, 225-pound senior played his freshman year at Butler Community College and, while he was a solid player his whole career, I don’t think anybody expected what he’s done this season. He’s been phenomenal.
Also, we’ve got the Turnpike Tussle tomorrow in Topeka. ESU vs. Washburn is always fun, and especially when there’s something on the line like this year — the Ichabods have a real shot at second in the MIAA if they can beat the Hornets and close out with a win over Lincoln.
I’m out. TA
