* President Kazee Seeks Your Input

Dear Members of the Campus Community,

I am writing today to invite your participation in an important campus-wide forum this Wednesday, January 16 at 4:00 p.m. in Eykamp Hall. As you know, the various constituencies of the University have worked together during the last two years to develop a strategic plan and a master facilities plan that have enabled us to identify and prioritize ways in which UE can build on its existing strengths.  Work is also well underway in our new office of Marketing and Communications to make the world better aware of the distinctive quality of the UE experience. 

In coming months we will be laying the foundation for fundraising efforts to support these priorities.  At Wednesday’s forum I will share with you an initial draft of the “vision statement” that is the basis for our conversations with friends and supporters of the University.  As with any great university, UE has multiple directions in which it might move, but we recognize that our success depends on setting clear and compelling priorities. We must focus on those objectives that are critical to our core mission and have the greatest potential to make UE a singular example of exemplary post-secondary education.

I hope you will join me on Wednesday for this important presentation and discussion.

Sincerely,

Tom Kazee
President

 

* Professor Emeritus David Gugin Has Died

University of Evansville Professor Emeritus David Gugin died at his home on Wednesday, January 9. There was a memorial service at 11 a.m. in Neu Chapel on Monday, January 14. Burial will be at Oakhill Cemetery at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, January 15.

He is survived by his wife, Linda, daughter Patricia (Ron) Cleghorn and son David Larkin (Lwin), a sister, Mary (Joe) Maheras, and five grandchildren, Zack, Jessica, and Daniel Cleghorn and Sanda and David Gugin.

Dr. Gugin was a long-time professor of political science at UE, retiring in 2004. During his 33 years at the University, Dr. Gugin was named Outstanding Teacher of the Year and received the Sadelle and Sydney Berger Award for Service. In 2008, he was the recipient of the Samuel Orr Honorary Alumnus Award.

He served in many positions at UE, including chair of the political science department, director of John L. Igleheart Center for the Study of Urban Affairs, and director of international admissions and international studies. He was coordinator and director of the summer program in Japan and a member of many UE committees, including the Executive Committee, the University Senate, and the Dean’s Search Committee.

Along with his University duties, Gugin did consulting work for Evansville community organizations. He was a member of the Mayor of Evansville 1975 Indiana’s Task Force on Human Resources and the West Side Neighborhood Improvement Association. He was also a consultant to Leadership Evansville Inc. and the Evansville Bar Association.

UE Professor of Philosophy Dick Connolly noted that "Dr. Gugin was a dedicated teacher who was loved and admired by his students whom he thoroughly enjoyed harassing. He was a great colleague and a genuine character. He died peacefully at home on Wednesday afternoon. For those of you who knew him, that may have been the only thing he ever did peacefully. He will be missed."

Those wishing to make a contribution in David's honor may make it to the David A. Gugin Memorial Fund at the University of Evansville, Indiana, 1800 Lincoln Avenue, Evansville, Indiana 47722, or to a charity of the donor's choice. Contributions to the memorial fund will support the costs of students who study abroad.

* Aces Hang on for 71-65 Win over SIU

Redshirt sophomore Khristian Hart poured in a career-high 26 points and sophomore Mallory Ladd notched her fifth-straight double-double, as the University of Evansville women’s basketball team topped visiting Southern Illinois, 71-65, Sunday afternoon at the Ford Center.

Neither side led by more than two possessions in the second half, as Evansville (4-10, 2-1 MVC) and SIU (4-10, 1-2 MVC) shared the lead several times in the second half, until the Hart was able to put the game away in the final seconds of the contest on a pair of free throws.

Senior Taylor Ware joined Hart and Ladd in double figures for Evansville (4-10, 2-1 MVC) with 10 points, as the Purple Aces matched their Missouri Valley Conference win total from last season.  Ladd scored 16 points, going 5-for-9 from the field and 5-for-5 at the foul line, in addition to hauling in a career-high 13 rebounds. 

The Aces scored the first two points of the contest, but Southern Illinois tallied the next seven and led 7-2 just over five minutes into the game.  The Salukis lead would be short lived, as Ware tied the game at 9-9 on a fastbreak basket following a steal by Hart.

Ware’s basket and strong defense sparked a 20-4 run for Evansville, as the Aces took a 22-11 advantage when Ladd converted an old fashioned three-point play with 11:00 remaining the opening half.

UE took its largest lead of the game, using a 12-0 run to extend its margin to 34-13 on a three from Hart at the top of the arc.  However, Jameeka Bouie ended a six-minute scoring drought for the Salukis and SIU proceeded to respond by hitting three-straight treys as part of a 14-0 run that trimmed Evansville’s lead to just seven at 34-27 at the 3:27 mark.

The Aces’ went cold from the field over the final eight minutes of the half, scoring just three points in that span, as Southern Illinois closed the gap to 37-34 heading into the locker room, ending the half on a 21-3 run.

UE shot 50.0 percent from the field (15-for-30) in the opening stanza, but shot just 2-for-7 from behind the arc.  SIU connected on 41.4 percent of its first-half shots (12-for-29) and buried five of its eight shots from long distance.

The two sides traded baskets in the early part of the second half, until Southern Illinois took its first lead since the 12:51 mark in the first half when Cartaesha Macklin converted a three-point play, giving the Salukis a 44-43 lead.

Ladd hit a pair of shots from the charity stripe to regain the lead for UE, but it was short lived, as Rishonda Napier buried a three on the ensuing possession for SIU to put the Salukis back in front, 47-45, with 14:40 remaining in the game.

Just over a minute later, Evansville would take control, 52-49, on a jumper by sophomore Juliann Miller and a pair of free throws from senior Samantha Heck.  However, Macklin had the answer for Southern Illinois once again, putting the Salukis back in front, 54-52, on a three-point play at the 9:28 mark.

Jordyn Courier buried a three from the left corner to give the Salukis a four-point edge, at 59-55 with 5:39 to play, but the Aces quickly answer, as Ladd connected on a three-pointer from the right wing to bring UE back within one at 59-58 at the 5:15 mark.

The big shot for Evansville game from Hart with 3:08 remaining in the game.  As the shot clock expired, the sophomore guard sank a three from the right corner that would give the Aces the lead for good at 63-61.

Macklin tied the game at 63-63 on an up –and-under layup with two minutes to play, but UE was able to close the game on an 8-2 run to secure the 71-65 victory.

The Aces dominated the boards, grabbing 41 to the Salukis’ 28, including 13 on the offense glass that resulted in 16 second-chance points.  Evansville also won the battle inside the paint, outscoring SIU, 36-24, in that column.

UE will continue Valley play Thursday, Jan. 17, with a road game at Illinois State starting at 7:05 p.m.  The Aces will close the weekend with a 1:05 p.m. contest at Indiana State Saturday, Jan. 19.

* Women's Swimming and Diving Falls to Vanderbilt

The University of Evansville women’s swimming and diving team fell to Vanderbilt this afternoon in Nashville, Tennessee.  The Aces women’s team was defeated by the Commodores 180-82.

Teammates Abby Smith, Mackenzie Harris, Samantha Montgomery, and Michelle Tipton were victorious in the 200-yard freestyle relay with a final time of 1:41.79. Tipton also took a second place win in the 1000-yard freestyle with a time of 10:35.02. Meanwhile, Smith brought home a pair of second place wins in both the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 24.22 and the 100-yard freestyle with a final time of 54.27. Smith also contributed to a second place win with a final time of 1:49.91 in the 200-yard medley relay along with teammates Taylor Shotwell, Jill Enge, and Michea Reinitz.

Reinitz also took a second place spot in the 50-yard butterfly with a time of 26.42, as well as tying for second in the 100-yard butterfly with a final time of 58.15. Shotwell also brought home a second place win in the 100-yard backstroke with a time of 1:00.94, while Enge took the second spot in the 100-yard breaststroke with a final time of 1:07.39.

The UE women will return to the pool when they travel to face Western Kentucky in a dual meet on January 19.

* Aces Deal No. 23 Wichita State 71-67 Loss

Three of Evansville's seniors finished in double figures, led by Colt Ryan's game-high of 24 as the University of Evansville men's basketball team took down No. 23 Wichita State by a final score of 71-67 on Sunday afternoon at the Ford Center.“We are excited, I have such respect for Gregg Marshall and their program with how hard they play, but I am proud of our team and how they hung together, it is a great win.  This was the most unselfish that we played, our guys did their best to help each other,” Aces head coach Marty Simmons said.  “Colt played with a lot of emotion out there today and our guys feed off of him.  They really respond to him, but it definitely helps us to have our senior leadership.  Our bench also played very well today.”

Ryan connected on 9-of-19 shots for Evansville (11-6, 4-1 MVC) to lead the squad to its fourth-consecutive win.  The Purple Aces are also a perfect 3-0 at home in league play this season.  Troy Taylor posted a season-high 12 points, marking the third game in a row he has reached the 10-point mark.  It is the first time in his career he has done so, his top stretch prior to now was a stretch of three double-digit outings in five games in his junior campaign.

“I’m happy with every win but we’re in MVC play now and every win counts,” Taylor said.  “The crowd was great, we made a few plays and the crowd got loud, I give credit to them, they help us out tremendously and are like the sixth man on the court.”

Neither team found an offensive rhythm early on as the score was 4-4 at the first timeout of the game.  Wichita (15-2, 4-1 MVC) held a 4-2 edge as the teams combined to hit just two of the opening nine shots before a Colt Ryan layup knotted the game up at 4-4.  The Shockers hit their next two buckets to take an 8-4 lead before the Aces scored six in a row.

The defense of UE forced three-consecutive turnovers while Troy Taylor hit three of his opening four attempts to take a 10-8 lead.  Demetric Williams ended the stretch with a trey to put the Shockers back on top eight minutes in.  Turnovers plagued the Shockers as they committed 11 while UE turned the ball over on just three occasions.  WSU stayed in it thanks to a 20-10 rebounding lead in the opening stanza.

Ten lead changes and nine ties culminated in Evansville going to the break up 32-31.  With two minutes remaining in the half, Malcolm Armstead, who was 6-8 in the half from the floor, knocked down his third trey to give WSU a 31-30 lead, but Egidijus Mockevicius countered with a bucket inside the final ten seconds to put the lead back in the Aces' hands.

Out of the break, Ehimen Orukpe hit a layup to give the lead back to WSU before the Aces fought back to take a 38-37 lead on a free throw by Ned Cox.  The Shockers retook the lead and would hold it for the next six minutes, leading by as many as five (50-45).  Cleanthony Early led a 5-0 WSU run as they grabbed their largest edge of the game.  Evansville fought back quickly with an 8-2 stretch that led to a 53-52 UE lead inside of eight minutes remaining.

D.J. Balentine, who scored just six points in the last five games entering Sunday’s contest, scored five in a row for UE as they retook the lead.  With the game knotted at 56-56 with 5 minutes remaining, the Purple Aces posted their top run of the game, scoring five in a row, all tallies by Colt Ryan, to take their largest lead of the game before a 3-pointer by Cox gave UE a 64-58 edge with 1:48 left.  With the lead standing at six with just over a minute left, the Shockers almost pulled off a miracle.  Malcolm Armstead, who led the Shockers with 21 points, hit a layup to cut the deficit to four.  On the inbound, Armstead recorded a steal as he found an open Early, who drained a three to cut the lead to one at 66-65 with 46 ticks remaining. 

Evansville sunk three out of its next four free throws to open up a 69-65 advantage before it was cut to two on a Jake White bucket.  The ensuing foul sent Ryan to the free throw line with 20 seconds left where he hit one out of two.  Seconds later, White missed a three that would have tied the game and Lewis Jones responded on the other end, hitting a free throw that made it the final 71-67.

Wichita State shot 59.1% in the second half and 54.3% for the game while holding UE to 44.9% in the game.  The top difference came in turnovers as UE forced 22 while committing just nine of its own.  That led to 27 Aces points off the turnover while the Shockers notched just nine.  WSU finished with a 36-21 rebounding advantage.

Aside from the performances of Ryan and Taylor, Ned Cox finished with ten points, nine of which came via the long-range shot.  Mockevicius scored nine points while Balentine bounced back with eight.

Armstead led WSU with 21 while Early finished the game with 16.

It is back to the road for UE as they travel to Drake for a 7 p.m. game on Wednesday evening in Des Moines.  The Aces return to the state of Indiana next weekend, traveling to Terre Haute on Saturday evening to take on Indiana State at 7:05 p.m. CT.
