* This Week in Music: The Music of New York

The Department of Music continues its First Tuesday Concert Series this week in Wheeler Concert Hall on Tuesday evening, February 5, at 7:30, with a concert entitled “The Music of New York.” The works performed will have various connections to the Big Apple. For instance, the Eykamp Quartet will open the concert with the first movement of Antonin Dvo?ák’s “American” Quartet, a piece inspired by the composer’s time in the United States while serving as artistic director for the National Conservatory of Music in New York. Consortium Instructor of Flute Shauna Thompson and Professor of Piano Anne Fiedler will perform the Sonatina for Flute and Piano by Eldin Burton, a Modern composer with significant ties to New York and to the Julliard School of Music. Most of the works will have ties to Broadway, however, including songs by George Cohen and Harry Warren and various selections from the works of Leonard Bernstein, longtime music director of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. The evening will culminate in a performance of two well-known ensemble pieces (“Cool” and “Tonight”) from Bernstein’s West Side Story, presented by Voice Faculty members Stacey Uthe, Gregory Rike, Richard Williams, and John Truitt, with Associate Professor of Piano Garnet Ungar and Consortium Instructor of Percussion Ross Erickson providing the accompaniment.

* Matthew Knoester to Speak af Andiron Lecture on February 6

The next University of Evansville Andiron Lecture is set for Wednesday, February 6 in Eykamp 252, Ridgway University Center. The lecture begins at 4 p.m. with a social gathering with beverages preceding it at 3:45 p.m. The speaker will be Assistant Professor of Education Matthew Knoester. His topic is “International Struggles for Democratic Education.”

Knoester holds a master’s degree from Harvard and a PhD in curriculum and instruction from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He is a National Board Certified Teacher and was formerly a teacher in the Boston Public Schools, where he taught in a small, democratically-run school founded by MacArthur award-winner Deborah Meier. He recently published two books on democratic education: an edited volume, International Struggles for Critical Democratic Education, and a book about the school where he taught in Boston, Democratic Education in Practice: Inside the Mission Hill School.

In this lecture, Knoester discusses these books, making a case that expanding access to educational opportunities is important for cultivating democratic citizenship. He explains why this project is threatened by the current focus on marketization of schooling and by the view that the primary purpose of schools is training for economic development, rather than preparation for democratic self-rule.

Evansville missed its opening three shots before Egidijus Mockevicius tipped in the opening shot of the game.  Troy Taylor hit a layup as the Aces jumped out to a 4-0 advantage before Drew Wilson ended an 0-5 drought for the Bears as his bucket got MSU on the board.

Mockevicius made it a 2-for-2 start from the floor before a D.J. Balentine three gave UE its largest edge at 11-7 inside of 12 minutes remaining.  The defense for UE came out strong, holding MSU to 2-10 to begin the game.  The hot shooting start for the Aces was slowed as they would make just one of their next ten shots as the Bears would go on an 11-2 stretch to take an 18-13 lead.

Following a steal by Ryan Sawvell, Taylor hit a layup before Colt Ryan made his way on to the scoreboard as his trey tied it up at 18-18 inside of 5 minutes left in the opening frame.  A free throw by the Batesville, Ind. native gave the lead back to UE, and after switching hands three times, it was UE who went to the half with the advantage as a dunk in the final seconds by Jaylon Moore gave the Aces a 24-23 lead.

Taylor finished the half with 6 points and 5 rebounds as Evansville held a 19-15 edge on the boards at the break.  His six points led the Aces while the top scorer in the game at that point was Keith Pickens.  Helping MSU keep it close was an 11-of-15 effort from the free throw line while UE was 2-4.  Evansville held a slight 35.7%-27.3% shooting edge.

Out of the break, the offense connected on four of its first five buckets, including back-to-back treys by Ned Cox as UE opened up its largest lead of the game at 34-25 at the 3:11 mark.  Another bucket by Colt gave the Aces their first double figure lead at 38-27 before the Bears roared back with a 5-0 stretch of their own.  Marcus Marshall hit the first three-pointer of the game for MSU to finish off the stretch.

Ryan ended the run with an and-one, but the Bears kept fighting.  With under eight minutes remaining, Nathan Scheer connected from downtown to get the Bears back within one possession at 48-45.  Scheer kept it going, knocking down three of his first four long-range shots as another one with 2:45 left gave the Bears a 59-57 lead for their first advantage of the second period.

Colt Ryan led UE back on top as he scored four in a row for UE to make it a 61-59 game, but with 43 ticks remaining, Anthony Downing drained his first three of the day to put MSU back on top at 62-61.  After a Mockevicius miss, the Bears missed the front end of a one-and-one, handing the ball back to UE with just over ten seconds remaining. 

Ryan was unable to finish off a shot, sending Keith Pickens to the line where he missed his free throw.  Evansville had one more chance with 2.9 seconds remaining, but a Cox attempt fell short handing MSU the win.

For the first time this season, Missouri State won a game when being outrebounded as the Aces finished with a 34-31 edge in that department.  The Bears finished with the final shooting advantage at 41.3% to 40.4% by UE.  Taylor led all players with seven rebounds while Mockevicius finished the day with six.  Cox and Ryan led the way with four assists apiece.

Evansville will remain on the road for a Tuesday night game, traveling to Peoria, Ill. to face Bradley.  The Aces and Braves will begin play at 7 p.m. in Carver Arena.

Northern Iowa (10-11, 5-4 MVC) quickly took control of the game, scoring the first 10 points of the contest and getting eight of them from Hannah Schonhardt to force an early UE timeout just over two minutes into the ballgame.

Taylor Ware ended the Panthers’ run with a15-foot jumper that put a spark into Evansville’s offense.  The Aces used a 12-3 run that was capped by a Ware three-pointer to trim Northern Iowa’s lead to 13-12 at the 15:13 mark in the first half.

Freshman Laura Friday knotted the game for the first time at 15-15, nailing a triple from the left corner with 12:17 to play in the opening period.  However, the Panthers would score eight of the next 12 points and put themselves in front 23-19 just under four minutes later.

The Aces countered with a 7-1 run and took the lead for the first time, 26-24, when Ware collected an offensive rebound and scored with a put back with 6:16 remaining in the half.

The two teams swapped the lead on a pair of occasions, before UNI began to pull away, using a 7-0 run that was capped by a Schonhardt tripe, giving Northern Iowa a 34-29 advantage just a minute before the intermission.

Ware connected on a three-point attempt just 32 seconds before the halftime horn to make the score 34-32 in favor of the Panthers at the break.

UE committed just four turnovers in the first half, but UNI countered by shooting 54.5 percent from the floor, connecting on 12 of its 22 shot attempts.

Northern Iowa went on a quick run to start the second half, opening up a 42-35 lead when Jen Keitel knocked down a three to cap an 8-0 UNI run with 17:40 showing on the clock.

The Panthers sank seven of their first eight second-half shot attempts and took their largest lead at 47-37 on a Sharnae Lamar three-pointer at the 15:18 mark.

Heck banked in a layup to bring Evansville back with in single digits at 58-49, but Northern Iowa rattled off five quick points out of a media timeout to push the margin back to 63-52 with 7:09 remaining.

With 2:24 to play, Ladd stole an inbounds pass and dropped in a layup that capped an 8-0 UE run and cut UNI’s lead to 65-60.  However, the Panthers’ defense would hold strong the rest of the way and Jacqui Kalin hit six free throws in the final 45 seconds as part of her game-high 28 points to seal the Northern Iowa victory.

The Aces shot 42.0 percent for the game (21-for-50) and connected on 10 of their 27 shots from long range (37.0%).  UNI posted even better numbers from the field, sinking 22 of its 41 shot attempts (53.7%), including a 9-for-19 effort from beyond the arc (47.4%).

Northern Iowa also earned a 30-21 advantage on the boards, while UE was able to score 22 points off of 14 Panther turnovers and converted its seven offensive rebounds into 14 second-chance points.
