* Aces to face Norfolk State Today

Norfolk State is up next as the University of Evansville men’s basketball team continues its home slate on Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. inside the Ford Center.

Tickets are available for Thursday’s game by visiting the Ford Center or Carson Center ticket offices, on or by calling 812-488-ACES.

The Aces have started the season at 8-2 for the second year in a row; last season, Evansville started the season at 11-2. UE is coming off of a 95-60 win over Mississippi Valley State that saw the Aces record 58 rebounds and 34 points in the paint.

Saturday’s victory over Mississippi Valley State continued a streak for the Purple Aces that has seen them win 14 out of their last 15 non-conference games at the Ford Center since the beginning of the 2014 season. That includes a perfect 5-0 start at home this season and a 3-0 record in the 2015 CIT.

With 20 points against the Delta Devils, D.J. Balentine is now just 20 points away from recording 2,000 in his career. He would become the 4th player in program history, the 16th in the MVC record books and 32nd player among all of the Division I schools in the State of Indiana to do so. Colt Ryan reached 2,000 in a home overtime win against Drake in 2013 while Marcus Wilson hit the mark in an MVC Tournament win over Bradley in 1999.

Egidijus Mockevicius made it look easy on Saturday as he grabbed 18 rebounds and scored 16 points to register his 8th double-double in ten games. He remains second in the nation with an average of 13.8 rebounds per game, behind only Ben Simons of LSU, who is regarded as the best player in the country. His rebounding lead in the MVC is 7.1 per game; he has 138 on the season while his closest competition stands with 74.

After missing six games, Christian Benzon came back in a big way against Mississippi Valley State. Benzon scored a career-high nine points while blocking two shots in just six minutes of action.

Norfolk State makes its third trip to Evansville with a 4-6 record after falling by a 75-59 final at Cincinnati on Tuesday. The Spartans are led by Jeff Short’s 16 points per game while D’Shon Taylor has scored 14 per contest. Charles Oliver also averages double figures as he has notched 12.2 points per game. A stellar 3-point shooting team, the Spartans have hit 39.2% of their shots from outside. NSU won three games in a row after Thanksgiving, defeating Northern Arizona, Mercy College and Coppin State.
