* University of Evansville Theatre Honoring 400th Anniversary of William Shakespeare's Death with Free Tickets to Richard III

In honor of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, the University of Evansville Theatre is giving away 400 free tickets to their production of Richard III. The production closes the 2015–16 Shanklin Theatre season this weekend with performances at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, Friday, April 22, and Saturday, April 23, and at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 24.

“We are thrilled to offer this rare opportunity to our community and invite them to join us in honoring the world’s most-produced playwright,” said Sharla Cowden, UE Theatre Managing Director.

In The Tragedy of King Richard III, the title character is such a cunning royal reprobate so deformed in body and spirit that even his mother rues the day he was born. In chilling psychopathic fashion, Richard III horrifyingly explains and executes his plans to kill his way to the English throne. Though he rules with a tyrant’s vengeance that is both backstabbing and bloody, we dare not turn away as his mesmerizing plot unfolds before us.

UE Theatre artistic director R. Scott Lank directed the production. “Shakespeare is still so relevant today because he writes about universal truths we all have in common: love, death, ambition, greed, and even the capacity for forgiveness,” said Lank. “We all can recognize ourselves in Shakespeare’s characters even 400 years later.”

Only 400 tickets will be available for the three remaining performances. To reserve a seat, call the ticket office at 812-488-2031 and use the code Shakespeare 400.

* Lesley Pleasant, PhD, publishes article

"Dogeared Hate: Yilmaz Arslan’s Brudermord/Fratricide (2005), a new type of Heimatfilm,” an article by Lesley Pleasant, associate professor of German, has been published in the April/May 2016 volume of the German Studies journal, Pandaemonium Germanicum. This paper focuses on the Heimat (home) metaphor of the Pit Bull in Yilmaz Arslan’s Brudermord/Fratricide (2005), a film about Turkish migrants in Germany. Updating the genre for a world of fluid boundaries, Arslan’s film self-reflexively posits transnational Heimatfilm as a possible bridge between “Others," as a means to facilitate conversations that might decrease the violence of the present dog-eat-dog world of the margin the film portrays.

* Aces softball sweeps doubleheader at SIU

Fresh off a pair of Missouri Valley Conference series wins, the University of Evansville softball team made it three in a row, sweeping Southern Illinois in a doubleheader on Tuesday afternoon.

Morgan Florey picked up the win in both games for the Purple Aces (20-20, 8-9 MVC) and now has 13 victories on the season. Kristin Koepke had the deciding home run in the first game while fellow freshman Tess Hupe scored the game-winner in game two. Southern Illinois (25-16, 8-8 MVC) makes the trip to Evansville next Tuesday for the final game of the series.

“We preach to play the game pitch-by-pitch and you saw that in game one, it came down to a great swing by Kristin and that was the difference. It was a true pitcher’s duel with two of the best freshmen battling it out in the circle,” UE head coach Mat Mundell said. “In game two, we jumped out early and SIU fought back. Courtney laid down the perfect squeeze to score Tess the winning run. I love the fight out of this group!”

Game one was an all-out pitcher’s duel as Morgan Florey and SIU’s Brianna Jones duked it out. In the end, it was a Kristin Koepke home run that made the difference as the freshman hit one out of the park for the second time in three games. Courtney Land recorded the other hit for the Purple Aces.

Both pitchers went the distance as Florey gave up just one hit while Jones allowed two. Koepke’s homer came in the top of the sixth and Florey handled it from there. She sat the final seven SIU batters down in order to earn her 12th win of her freshman season. Florey also matched her career mark with nine strikeouts.

Following a defensive struggle in the first game, Evansville looked to change that early in the second contest, posting two runs on three hits in the top of the first in. Chandra Parr opened the game up with a leadoff single and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Land. After designated player Florey reached on an error, Hayli Scott came to the plate with two outs and delivered an RBI double. Michal Luckett followed that up with an RBI single to give UE a 2-0 lead.

Southern Illinois rebounded with single runs in the bottom of the first and second frames and the score would stay that way until the top of the sixth. A few familiar foes came into the circle once again as Jones and Florey squared off following their duel in game one and Evansville was able to get the job done against Jones once again. Susan Norris led the sixth off with a single and was pinch run for by Tess Hupe.

With two outs, Hupe moved to third after Parr reached on an error. That brought Land to the plate, who laid down a perfect bunt on the squeeze to plate Hupe and score what would be the winning run. The Aces finished game two with seven hits while holding the Salukis to four. Scott had two hits and an RBI in the win.

Evansville remains on the road this weekend, heading to Terre Haute for a 3-game set at Indiana State. Next Tuesday, UE welcomes SIU to Cooper Stadium for the final contest in the 3-game series. 

* Baseball set to welcome WKU [GAME MOVED TO 5:00 P.M.]

On the heels of a second consecutive Missouri Valley Conference series victory, the University of Evansville baseball team will engage in another non-conference showdown tonight as the Purple Aces will square off against Western Kentucky at 5:00 p.m. at Charles H. Braun Stadium.

The Aces, who are 20-14 on the season, will be looking to exact a bit of revenge against the Hilltoppers, who came away with a 6-5 win in Bowling Green earlier this month. UE stranded 12 runners in the contest, and WKU made the most of a five-run fourth inning before ultimately holding off the comeback attempts from the Aces lineup late.

Five different players recorded multiple hits for UE, with Korbin Williams and Jonathan Ramon leading the way after combining to go 5-for-8 with three runs and two walks.

The UE lineup has been a strength for the team this season, and the team enters the weekend with a .283 team batting average. Trey Hair, who is the second leading hitter in the MVC, tops the team with .386 mark at the plate, but it’s Boomer Synek who is coming off the bigger week. The senior catcher hit .500 over four games last week, highlighted by a ninth-inning game-winning home run at Murray State last Tuesday.

Williams also starred last week, leaving the park three times against Bradley to help take UE’s impressive home run total up to 37, which is the best single season total for an Aces squad since the 2010 season.

Meanwhile, UE will turn to Austin Allinger on the mound. The freshman right-hander is coming off his best career outing a week ago, tossing eight one-run innings in the Murray State win while striking out a career-best seven hitters in the process.

WKU, which hosts Belmont on Tuesday night, is 18-17 on the year. After starting Conference USA play with series wins over Middle Tennessee and UAB, the Hilltoppers will be looking to bounce back from a three-game sweep at the hands of Rice this past weekend.

First pitch from Braun Stadium is slated for 5:00 p.m. this evening.

Today will mark the 46th meeting between UE and WKU since 1978. The Aces are 20-23-1 versus the Hilltoppers over that timespan. Last season, UE took home two victories in a three-game set that was played in Emerson, Ga. UE and WKU have played in four of the last five seasons. Since 1978, the Aces are 113-86-2 against teams that hail from the state of Kentucky.

* MAC announces Distinguished Scholar-Athletes from winter sports

The Mid-American Conference announced today the Distinguished Scholar Athletes from the eight winter sports during this 2015-16 academic season as 202 students were voted by faculty athletic representatives at MAC institutions representing the "best of the best" from each sports Academic All-MAC Teams.

Earning the recognition from the University of Evansville was men’s swimmer Everett Plocek.  The sophomore from Nazdietschweiler, Germany, has a 3.934 GPA in exercise science/physical therapy.

“It is a great honor for Everett to be part this all distinguished academic team,” Purple Aces head swimming and diving coach Rickey Perkins said.  “It is a huge testament to his effort and dedication to both his athletics and academics. I am very happy for him.”

Leading the way were 58 MAC women’s indoor track and field students named as Distinguished Scholar Athletes.  MAC women’s swimming and diving students had 37 selections and men’s swimming and diving provided 34 honorees, while women’s gymnastics had 19 selections and women’s basketball and men’s indoor track and field each had 18 honorees.  MAC wrestling witnessed 12 selections and men’s basketball added six students honored as Distinguished Scholar Athletes.

The Distinguished Scholar Athlete is a second-year award given to students who have excelled in athletics and academics.  Following each season from the winter sports schedule, any student with a 3.20 GPA and participation in at least 50 percent of the contests was automatically named to the previously announced Academic All-MAC Team from each sport.  Also, first-year students, junior college, and graduate school transfers in their first year of residence were not eligible for the award.

From the Academic All-MAC Teams, the faculty athletic representatives selected the ‘best of the best’ of our Academic All-MAC Teams to be honored with Distinguished Scholar Athlete Award for the 2015-16 season.  The number of Distinguished Scholar Athletes from each sport were equivalent to the number of first-team selections or 33% of nominees, whichever was greater.
