* Dedication of the New Corridor of Champions

The Corridor of Champions exhibit from Roberts Stadium which showcased many memorable moments from UE Athletics history, will soon have a premier spot in the atrium of the new Ford Center.  The display has been completely revamped, and that enhancement and move has been made possible by generous donations from the naming sponsor, Hilliard Lyons, and several supporting sponsors.

The new Hilliard Lyons Corridor of Champions will be dedicated in a private ceremony before the UE vs. IU game on November 16. All funds raised from tickets to the event will go toward completion of Phase II of the exhibit which will be a memorial wall honoring those who lost their lives the "night it rained tears." The 1977 UE plane crash touched and changed so many lives at the University and in the region. This will always be a part of the fabric of UE and Evansville.

The reception and ceremony will begin at 4:30 p.m. with remarks by Jerry Sloan (on video), Larry Humes, and Calbert Cheaney at 5:10 p.m., followed by Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel. Alan Newman of Hilliard Lyons will then unveil the Hilliard Lyons Corridor of Champions. Doors open at 4:15 p.m.

TICKET INFORMATION (Ticket required for admission)
Ticket price:  $100.00 (tickets are tax deductible and proceeds will go toward Phase II of the exhibit). Ticket is for dedication only; game tickets must be purchased separately.

* GRADES NOT MONITORED MID-YEAR FOR SCHOLARSHIP/ FINANCIAL AID RENEWAL

As we approach the end of the fall semester, the Office of Financial Aid would like to clarify our policies regarding students’ academic performance and its connection to scholarship and financial aid renewal. The Office of Financial Aid does not monitor grades or credit hours earned after the fall semester. The stated Grade Point Average and credit-hours-earned standards that govern UE scholarships and all aid eligibility are monitored each MAY.

Therefore, if your GPA dips below the required minimum at the end of the fall semester, you have the spring semester to restore your cumulative GPA to the necessary level.  Aid is neither reduced nor restored in mid-year. (The exception is a student who is using a semester of conditional financial aid for fall under a specific appeal plan.) 

See the full policies for the renewal of UE Merit-based Scholarships, as well as maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress for the renewal of all forms of aid, including federal loans. Please direct your questions to the UE Office of Financial Aid at financialaid@evansville.edu, or 1-800-424-8634 or 812-488-2364.

* Scam Alerts – Copiers/Printers

Individuals on campus are again randomly receiving scam calls from individuals requesting departmental printer and/or copier model or serial information.  Keep in mind, UE current printer/copier vendors already have access to UE equipment and will never call departments requesting it.  In some cases, scammers are calling for individuals by name, saying that they need copier/printer information for repair purposes.  A scammers intent is to obtain information and to bill the University. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION.  Simply tell the caller that you are not authorized to provide information and refer them to the Office of Administrative Services.  Usually this quickly ends the conversation. 

If you receive a scam call, please report it to Kim Winsett, Office of Administrative Services at 2940.

 

Athletics

* Aces Stun Two-Time NCAA Runner-Up Butler in Overtime

Five Aces finished in double figures as the University of Evansville men’s basketball team officially opened up the Ford Center and the 2011-12 season with a wild 80-77 overtime win against Butler on Saturday afternoon.

“Overall, you saw a bunch of guys competing very hard against each other.  It was one of those games where you hate to see anybody lose, everyone played so hard,” head coach Marty Simmons said.  “We’re thrilled to death to come out on top.”

Colt Ryan led all players with 23 points while Jordan Jahr and Denver Holmes tallied 15.  Lewis Jones finished with 12 points while Kenneth Harris had 10.

A defensive battle ensued early in the first half as the teams combined to miss their first six shots before Khyle Marshall hit a layup to give Butler (0-1) a 6-4 lead with 15:41 left in the first half.  Jahr responded with a bucket of his own as UE (1-0) would tie the game on four occasions leading to a 22-22 score with 5:55 left in the period.

The Bulldogs were able to gain control at that point, finish the half on a 15-6 run to take a 37-28 lead at the break.  Andrew Smith, who notched ten points in the half, knocked down a trey with six seconds remaining to cement the BU lead.

Butler continued to add to its advantage over the first five minutes of the second half, going up 52-39.  With the Bulldogs up 54-43, Evansville made its run, scoring 11-straight over a span of four minutes to tie the game up at 54-54 with 8:24 left in the game.  Butler was 0-4 from the floor over that span while turning the ball over three times.  Jones recorded a pair of field goals in the run.

Ronald Nored scored to give the lead back to BU before a Harris three-pointer gave the Aces their first lead since early in the first half.  Nored drained a three on the ensuing trip down the floor and with 6:46 remaining, a pair of free throws put Butler up 61-57. 

Buckets by Holmes and Jahr helped Evansville tie the game back up, but a pair of Chrishawn Hopkins threes in a span of 30 seconds turned a 2-point Aces lead into a 4-point deficit.

The Aces did not relent as Holmes struck again, hitting a layup and a free throw to cut the deficit to a point, 67-66.  A free throw by Nored put Butler up 69-66 with just over a minute remaining and that is where the fun began.  Colt Ryan connected on a shot with 44 seconds left to cut the BU lead to one. 

Following a Bulldog turnover, the Aces had the ball down one with a chance at the final shot.  Ned Cox attempted a jumper with seven second left with Ryan grabbing the miss.  He was fouled by Jackson Aldridge and went to the line with under a second remaining.  After missing the first, he would make the second to tie the game at 69.

Overtime seemed to be the likely destination, but Butler had other ideas.  The Bulldogs heaved the ball the full length of the floor to Andrew Smith, who was fouled on an attempt as time was running out.  Smith went to the line needing just one free throw to seal the win, but missed both to send the game to the extra period.

After a pair of ties, a pair of Ryan free throws with two minutes remaining gave Evansville the lead for good.  He recorded the final six UE points as the Aces would hang on for the 80-77 victory.

Aside from his team high of 23 points, Ryan led UE with seven boards.  He was 14-of-18 from the free throw line while dishing out three assists and stealing the ball five times.  Jahr was an efficient 5-7 from the floor, including 3-for-5 from long range. 

Chrishawn Hopkins led the Bulldogs with 22 points on 8-19 shooting.  Andrew Smith was close behind with 21.

The Aces will look to make it 2-0 on the season as they host Indiana at 7 p.m. Wednesday evening at the Ford Center.

* Wednesday's Men's Game vs. Indiana Sold Out

The University of Evansville athletic department has announced that Wednesday’s men’s basketball game against Indiana University at the Ford Center is completely sold out.

The game will be streamed live on ESPN3.com.  Tip is set for 7:00 p.m.  The doors to the Ford Center will open 90 minutes prior to tip.

* Five Aces Earn Men's Soccer All-MVC Honors

Five University of Evansville men’s soccer players received All-Missouri Valley Conference honors this season, announced by the league office Thursday night at the MVC pre-tournament awards ceremony in Omaha, Neb.

Senior defender Jarrett Robbins was selected to the second team, while classmate Aaron Henkle was named honorable mention. Patrick Hodges, Eric Teppen, and Ryan Stallings represented the Purple Aces on the all-freshman team.

Robbins piloted Evansville’s defense, while also serving as the Aces’ fourth-leading scorer with two goals and an assist this fall. Henkle, also a solid competitor for Evansville on the defensive end, tallied a goal and an assist while also helping UE record three shutouts this season.
Hodges, a freshman defender, scoring one goal, and classmate Stallings both had stellar first years wearing purple and white. Stallings led Evansville with five goals, also adding two assists, for 12 points on the year. Teppen became a mainstay in goal as a freshman, recording three shutouts with a 1.40 goals against average and 64 saves.

While UE ended the season with a 5-11-1 mark, that record could have easily been reversed as nine of UE’s 17 matches were decided by no more than one goal, including six losses. Graduating three players in Henkle, Robbins, Tad Kreamalmeyer, Evansville will have 22 returners in 2012, including eight players who accounted for 80 percent of the 2011 goals scored.
