* Eight to be honored with jersey retirements

Following an exhaustive 11-month nomination process, six former University of Evansville men’s basketball players and two legendary head coaches will be honored by having their jerseys retired, the highest honor that can be bestowed by the program. The official ceremony will take place in conjunction with the Purple Aces game against Drake on January 27.

Those being honored include: #20 Hugh Ahlering, #15 Brad Leaf, #50 Marty Simmons, #20 Scott Shreffler, #31 Andy Elkins, and #5 Marcus Wilson. Coaches Arad McCutchan and Jim Crews will also have their likeness in the Ford Center rafters.

Below is a capsule on each of the deserving recipients:

#20 Hugh Ahlering - Hugh Ahlering played at UE from 1957-59. A 1973 UE Hall of Fame inductee, Ahlering was a 1959 First Team AP All-American. Ahlering was a pivotal member of UE’s first national championship team, averaging 15.3 points per game.

#15 Brad Leaf - Brad Leaf lettered at UE from 1979 through 1982 and played an instrumental role in 1981-82, scoring 17.6 points per game in leading UE to its first Division I tournament. Leaf is 8th in UE history with 1,605 points and was a 3-time All-MCC First Teamer.

#50 – Marty Simmons - In just two years, Marty Simmons put his imprint on the Aces program.
Scoring 1,265 points, Simmons finished the 1987-88 season 6th in the nation with 25.9 PPG while finishing 9th in AP Player of the Year voting. Simmons led UE to a 21-8 mark as a senior including an NIT win over Utah, the Aces first Division I postseason win.

#20 – Scott Shreffler - Scott Shreffler was the glue on a team that advanced to three NCAA Tournaments in his four years as a starter. Shreffler remains second in UE history with 521 assists and is 13th on the scoring list with 1,454 in his career. He is the only player in the Aces’ Division I history to make three NCAA Tournaments.

#31 – Andy Elkins - The #6 scoring in Purple Aces history (1,761 points), Andy Elkins led UE to two NCAA Tournaments and one NIT in four seasons. Elkins, a native of Evansville, was a 1st Team MCC player in 1994 before earning the accolade from the Missouri Valley Conference in 1995.

#5 – Marcus Wilson - Marcus Wilson was the 1999 Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year and led UE to the regular season league championship that year and an NCAA Tournament berth. A member of the MVC All-Centennial Team that was announced in 2007, Wilson ranks 4th on the UE list with 2,053 career points.

Arad McCutchan served as the UE head coach from 1946 until 1977 and led the Purple Aces to five National Championships. He was enshrined into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame in 1973 before earning the nod from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1981. McCutchan was a 2-time NCAA College Division Coach of the Year.

Jim Crews coached the Purple Aces for 17 seasons (1985-2002) and won a total of 294 games. He led Evansville to four NCAA Tournament appearances and a pair of NIT berths. Crews was a 4-time conference Coach of the Year, winning it three times in the MCC and once in the Missouri Valley Conference - that coming in 1999. UE was .500 or better in 13 of his 17 seasons at the helm.

At the University of Evansville, the program retires the jersey, not the actual number. Numbers of previous retirees continue to be worn to this day. The eight honorees join six others in the rafters. Prior jersey retirees include: #19 Gus Doerner, #40 Ed Smallwood, #52 Jerry Sloan, #50 Larry Humes, #10 Don Buse, and #3 Scott Haffner. A committee considered hundreds of former men’s basketball players throughout an 11-month process. 

A special reception will be held around the January 27 game to celebrate the jersey retirees.  Information, location and admission price will be announced at a later date.

Before co-directing the Jezreel Expedition with UE’s Jennie Ebeling, Franklin supervised hundreds of American college students as a senior staff member of the Megiddo (biblical Armageddon) excavations and is thus very familiar with the challenges and rewards of the student study abroad experience. This presentation will be a great resource for students who have studied abroad or who are interested in a study abroad experience.

The presentation will be held today - Monday, November 13 - in Eykamp Hall, Room 253, Ridgway University Center from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

* Evansville Day School offering scholarship opportunity to UE families

Evansville Day School has announced a scholarship opportunity for students whose families are employed full-time by the University of Evansville. Any student admitted to Evansville Day School will automatically receive a 50 percent (25 percent for Junior Pre-K and Pre-K) tuition reduction. Once awarded, the scholarships will be automatically renewed annually.

Evansville Day School is offering this scholarship because it understands that educators have chosen a profession with immeasurable societal impact, but with lower salary benefits than other fields requiring similar degrees and work demands. As the leading college prep school in the region, the Evansville Day School wants to partner with educators by making the school affordable to families who value the school’s mission and brand of education.

More information on the scholarship is available in the Office of Human Resources at UE. Also, Evansville Day School invites those interested to Discover Why Day, an admission event scheduled for November 10 at 8:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. More information on Discover Why Day can be found on the Day School’s event page: https://www.evansvilledayschool.org/discover-why-day.

* Purple Aces knock off fourth seeded Loyola

The University of Evansville men's soccer team got just a single goal, but that's all it needed, as the Purple Aces knocked off fourth seeded Loyola 1-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference tournament quarterfinals in Peoria, Illinois, Wednesday.

After playing to a scoreless stand-off in the opening half, the Aces offense began to pick up steam, with several opportunities just missing the frame. The lone tally of the game came off the foot of senior midfielder Ian McGrath, who was set up beautifully by junior Zac Blaydes and redshirt freshman Trevor Baum. It was McGrath's 12th goal of the season, as well as his sixth game winner this season. The New Lenox, Illinois native has scored goals in the Aces last three tournament matches going back to last year.

The final 30 minutes saw Evansville hang on for dear life, as the Ramblers threw everything but the kitchen sink at senior goalkeeper Matthew Keller and the UE defense. In all, Keller faced 15 shots, three on goal while turning in his second straight clean sheet.

The Aces improve to 11-8 and 1 on the season, while Loyola season ends with a record of 7-8 and 3.

Up next for Evansville is a semifinal showdown with top seeded Missouri State. The Bears edged the Aces in the regular season, 1-0 on September 23 in Springfield. Kick-off from Shea Stadium in Peoria is at 3:00 p.m. Friday afternoon.

* UE Theatre Announces Retirements of Professor John David Lutz and Associate Professor Christia Ward

 At the end of the 2017–18 academic year, University of Evansville’s longest-serving faculty member, Professor John David Lutz will retire after 53 years of teaching in the Department of Theatre, as well as Associate Professor Christia Ward, who has taught acting and voice and speech for 18 years.

Lutz graduated in 1964, from what was then Evansville College. He earned an MA from the University of Denver and returned to UE in 1965 as an instructor and technical director. He later earned an MFA from the University of New Orleans.

In addition to serving as Department Chair from 1984 to 2015, Lutz teaches courses in acting and directing and has directed over 75 productions at UE. During UE’s 38 years of participating in the Kennedy Center/American College Theatre Festival, 32 productions were invited to perform at regional festivals—with an 18-year uninterrupted streak of regional appearances. Lutz directed 24 of those 32 productions and six of those advanced to the national festival. In 2007, by special invitation, the UE production of The Comedy of Errors was one of the Kennedy Center’s contributions to the “Shakespeare in Washington” celebration. Lutz has also directed at regional theatres, as well as the Off-Broadway premiere of Between Daylight and Boonville, by Matt Williams, a UE alumnus.

Lutz and Ward headshots

Lutz has earned accolades for his artistic and educational talents. A few of his awards include: 1982 University of Evansville Medal of Honor, 1984 KCACTF Gold Medallion, 1987 Berger Award for Outstanding Creative Artist, 1994 Evansville Mayor’s Arts Award for Arts Educator of the Year, 1995 Indiana Governor’s Arts Award for Arts Educator of the Year, 2005 Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana’s Mayor’s Arts Award, 2007 induction into the College of Fellows of the American Theatre, 2012 KCACTF Outstanding Career Achievement in Directing, 2014 University of Evansville Distinguished Alumnus of the Year, and a 2016 Honorary Doctor of Letters degree from the University of Evansville.
In April of 2018, Lutz will direct the final play of Shanklin Theatre’s 50th anniversary season, The Grapes of Wrath, adapted by Frank Galati from John Steinbeck’s classic novel.

Ward graduated from the University of Evansville in 1983 and received her MFA in Acting from the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University. She is a member of Actors’ Equity Association and VASTA (Voice and Speech Trainers’ Association). Ward has performed professionally at the Dallas Theatre Center and Stage #1 in Dallas, and at Victory Gardens and Mary-Archie Theater in Chicago. She was an actor at the New Harmony Project for five years and originated roles in Mauritius by Theresa Rebeck, Mad City by Meredith Stiehm, and See Rock City and Gulf View Drive by Arlene Hutton.

Ward serves each UE Theatre production as Voice, Dialect and Text coach. She has done workshops with Cicely Berry, Catherine Fitzmaurice and David Smukler. She has trained extensively in Knight-Thompson speech work, which is rapidly becoming the standard in professional acting programs. At UE, she teaches voice and speech, dialects, acting Shakespeare, audition techniques, character study, and fundamentals of acting. Ward has been honored with acknowledgements of meritorious work by KCACTF for her dialect work on Jekyll and Hyde and her text work on The Comedy of Errors and The Winter’s Tale.

After directing several classroom projects at UE, Ward will make her directorial debut in Shanklin Theatre with the upcoming production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Nov. 10 through 19.

Department Chair Eric Renschler said, “It has been my distinct pleasure to work with both John David and Christia over the past 12 years, continuing a relationship begun more than thirty years ago, as Christia was a UE classmate and John David was an early mentor of mine. The University of Evansville Theatre is grateful for the service and dedication of both of these highly talented artists and educators, and we wish them much happiness and success in future endeavors.”

* Alhenawi officially licensed in Indiana as registered investment adviser and financial planner

Associate professor of finance Yasser Alhenawi is now officially licensed in Indiana as a registered investment advisor and financial planner. The licensure will have a positive impact on Alhenawi‘s scholarly work and his approach to experiential learning in the classroom.

Under close supervision of Alhenawi and a professional portfolio manager, who is a UE alum, students in the Wealth Management Practicum program have achieved impressive results. Applying a rather conservative investment philosophy and without material rise in the overall risk of the portfolio, they were able to outperform the benchmark (S&P 500 Index) significantly and consistently since the inception of the program three years ago. The Schroeder School’s Finance program has been ranked #1 among over 500 small universities and the school is also nationally ranked #4 by 2018 US News & World Report among small business schools.
