I ronwood coach Pete Lewinski isn’t ready to accept the hype around his Red Devils as one of the top teams in the Indianhead Conference, much less the favorite, as many consider them to be.
They have a rivalry game in Hurley next week. They have road games in several tough places to play still on the schedule.
But he did tell his team that if they keep winning, they need to be ready for the other team’s best shot each and every night.
Washburn led much of the first three-quarters of Monday night’s game and certainly looked to be Ironwood’s biggest roadblock to a conference championship.
The Devils withstood their upset attempt and escaped with a 62-59 victory and stayed undefeated at 5-0 and 4-0 in the conference.
