He is also active in the Evansville community, serving on a number of boards and committees.

Every day we communicate, at work, at home, and at play, and every day we are misunderstood, misinterpreted, and even seen as indifferent to and by others. This presentation will explore communication and will focus on the ideas of psychologists William Schutz and Abraham Maslow as they give us insights into the question “Why do we communicate?” Schriber will discuss the three basic models of interpersonal communication: linear, interactive, and transactional and will explain how each works and how to use them to strengthen interpersonal communication. His lecture will consider the principles of communication and how knowing and practicing them helps us to be better communicators. In closing, he will summarize the guidelines for interpersonal communication competence.

Creighton jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the opening set and utilized a late run to take a 25-16 win.  A pair of kills, followed by an ace helped CU take the early lead.  Evansville fought its way back and used three-straight service aces by Meaghan Holmes to tie the game up at 13-13.  The Bluejays proved to be too much, though, as they wrapped up the set on a 12-3 run to grab a quick 1-0 lead in the match. 

Using their late run from the first set, the Bluejays cruised to a 25-10 win in the second frame.  Jereb tallied five kills, including a pair of early ones to open up a 5-1 lead.  Evansville fought back to get within a pair at 6-4 on a kill by Stephanie Cerino, but an 8-0 Bluejay run was to omuch to overcume.  Jereb had three kills in the stretch as CU was dominant in the set. 

Evansville found its groove in the third set, but it did not come easy.  The Aces tallied the first two points before Creighton came back to take its first lead at 3-2.  Their lead would eventually grow to five points at 14-9.  With the lead still at five and the Bluejays holding onto a 20-15 lead, the Aces made their run.  Evansville scored seven of the next eight points to take a 22-21 lead.  Rachel TenHoor had two kills in the run and with the set tied at 23-23, Holmes and Emma Roberson put the finishing touch on the win as UE earned a 25-23 win.

Ring did her best to help UE stretch the match to five games with eight kills in the fourth set, but the Bluejays proved to be too much to handle as they earned a 25-17 win to take the match.  Ring had four early kills as the squads battled their way to a 9-9 tie.  Creighton made its game-changing run, posting three in a row with the scored knotted at 11-11.  Evansville was unable to stop the run as CU pulled away for the win.

Creighton’s largest advantage came in blocks as they notched 15 total team blocks while limiting UE to four.  The Bluejays also outhit UE, .283-.086.

The Aces return to the Carson Center on Tuesday as they will face UT-Martin at 7 p.m.


* Hajderovic, Gonzalez Score Twice in 4-0 Win

The University of Evansville men’s soccer team snapped a three-game losing streak with an impressive 4-0 win over visiting Oral Roberts, holding the Golden Eagles to just four shots, Sunday afternoon at Arad McCutchan Stadium. 

Faik Hajdervoic netted a pair of goals in the win to bring his season total to three, while Mark Anthony Gonzalez added a pair of insurance goals in the second half for his second and third tallies of the year.  UE goalkeeper Eric Teppen recorded his second clean sheet of the season between the posts, while backup keeper Robert Randant tallied three saves for the Aces in his 17 minutes of action.

The Aces got the first goal of the match in the 27th minute when Hajderovic scored from 25 yards out.  A right-footed shot from the freshman forward hit about three yards in front of the ORU keeper, before skipping over his outstretched hand and into the back of the net.

UE nearly doubled its lead with just over 15 minutes remaining in the opening stanza, when it created a breakaway opportunity after an Oral Roberts free kick.  However, the Golden Eagles’ keeper was able to break up the chance after a misplayed ball.

It did not take long for Evansville to push its advantage to 2-0 in the second half, as Hajderovic scored an unassisted goal in the 47th minute.  Hajderovic collected a loose ball outside the box, dribbled into the right side and fired a shot from 12 yards out inside the far post.

Gonzalez would score the net two for the Aces to make the final tally 4-0, as the freshman midfielder scored an unassisted goal in the 66th minute, before finishing a rebound from close range on a shot that was saved off the foot of Dylan Terry.  Terry was credited for the assisted to bring his season total to two.

UE outshot the Golden Eagles, 12-4, and posted a 5-2 advantage in the corner kick department.  Gonzalez led the Aces with four shots, Hajderovic tallied three and five other Evansville players accounted for the other five.

Evansville will have just a two-day rest before returning to the pitch, as the Purple Aces will travel to Charleston, Ill., for a non-conference game with Eastern Illinois Tuesday, Oct. 2.  Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.

* Women's Soccer Ties Missouri State

Freshman goalkeeper Simone Busby kept the University of Evansville women’s soccer team unbeaten in Missouri Valley Conference Sunday afternoon by making nine saves in a 0-0 draw with host Missouri State at Plaster Field in Springfield, Mo.

In the early going, both teams looked to play a possession game in the middle third of the pitch.  The Aces (2-6-3, 1-0-1 MVC) fired the first shot of the contest, but the Bears (6-6-2, 0-1-1 MVC) quickly countered with a shot of their own, forcing Busby to make the first of her nine saves.

UE’s defense was tested early, as MSU outshot the Aces, 7-3, over the first 45 minutes and earned a pair of corner kicks to Evansville’s one.

Missouri State’s offense got off to a quick start in the second half, as the Bears attempted the first five shots, but Busby was equal to the task, turning away the four that were on frame.

MSU continued its offensive barrage through the second half, but the UE defense stood firm, as the match remained scoreless after 90 minutes despite Missouri State’s 15-4 shot advantage.

The Aces nearly found the game-winning goal on a pair of occasions in the first overtime.  Early in the first extra period, Abby Springer nearly gave the Aces a win on a breakaway opportunity, but her shot sailed just wide.  In the 98th minute, a 25-yard free kick service from Allie Arguello rang the post, but Missouri State was able to clear the ball and prevent a scoring chance.

In the second overtime period, the Bears took the only shot of the final 10 minutes and came up empty on their only corner kick opportunity.

Springer led Evansville offensively with two shots, while five other Purple Aces combined for UE’s seven attempts on the afternoon.  With her effort in goal, Busby pushed her record to 1-0-3 and improved her goals against average to a paltry 0.37.

The Aces will look to stay unbeaten in league play next Sunday, Oct. 7, when they travel to Des Moines, Iowa, for a 1 p.m. match with Drake.
