* 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.

* Volleyball to Finish Season at Home

This weekend, the University of Evansville volleyball team will wrap up the 2011 season with a pair of home games against No. 11 Northern Iowa and Bradley.

Despite being 2-15 over its previous 17 contests, the Aces will look to make a mark on the final weekend of the season. Evansville will face the nationally ranked Panthers on Friday before finishing the year against the Braves on Saturday.

Evansville enters the final weekend of the season with a 13-18 mark and 3-13 in the MVC.  Last weekend, the Aces fell in a pair of matches at Missouri State and Wichita State.  Rachel TenHoor was the offensive leader for the weekend with 14 kills.  Brooke Maher was just behind with 13.  Ellen Sawin led the team in assists while Katie Klages was the leader in digs.

Bradley is fighting for a berth in the MVC Tournament.  The Braves begin play two games behind Indiana State for sixth place and 1/2 game behind Drake for seventh.  Bradley is 11-15 overall and 4-12 in the league.  Freshman Courtney Keefe helped highlight a balanced offensive attack in a five-set victory against Creighton with a match-high 16 kills.

* UE Women's Basketball To Meet Bearcats And Falcons In Ohio This Weekend

The University of Evansville women's basketball team will take a tour of Ohio this weekend, first stopping in Cincinnati Friday to face the Bearcats of the Big East at 6 p.m. The Purple Aces will continue on their road trip, meeting the defending Mid-American Conference champions, Bowling Green State University, Sunday at 11 a.m.

The Bearcats opened their season last Friday with a 74-42 win over IPFW and improved to 2-0 with a 75-64 win over Dayton Wednesday night. Four UC players reached double figures in both games, led by senior Chanel Chisholm's double-double with 19 points and 13 rebounds versus IPFW and Bjonee Reaves 25 points against the Flyers. Shooting over 53 percent from the floor in both wins, Dayeesha Hollins (15.0 ppg), Alyesha Lovett (9.5 ppg), and Kayla Cook (7.5 ppg) also contributed to the Bearcats 32-point and 11-point victories. Last season Cincinnati finished in 15th place in the Big East with a 9-20 overall record.

In the last meeting between UE and the Bearcats, Evansville came away with a 69-50 win at home on Dec. 15, 2004. The squads will meet for just the fifth time in history Friday. Cincinnati owns a 3-1 advantage in the all-time series.

The Falcons come off last Friday's 69-38 season-opening loss to Dayton. Danielle Havel and Chrissy Steffen each tallied 10 points in the defeat, as BGSU was held to a 29.6 field goal percentage. The Falcons will face Purdue Thursday night before meeting Evansville Sunday. Bowling Green was picked to finish first in the MAC this year after capturing the divisional title last year for the seventh straight season with a 28-5 overall in 2010-11. However, Steffen, who was named to the Preseason All-MAC Team, is the Falcons only returning starter from a year ago, as BGSU graduated six seniors.

In the Aces season-opener on Nov. 12, 2010, Evansville upset Bowling Green, 63-62 at Roberts Stadium. UE jumped out to a 16-0 lead piloted by Jordan Lewis? three three-pointers, a pair of layups from Staci Gillum and a three by Samantha Heck. The Falcons battled back, but the Aces held them off, securing the victory. After that game, BGSU went on to win 15 consecutive games, receiving votes in the national rankings, and were ranked among the Mid-Major Top 25. Evansville is 1-1 all-time versus the Falcons, meeting BGSU for just the third time in history Sunday.

The Aces come off last Friday's 76-61 loss to the hosting Murray State Racers in the 2011-12 season opener. Junior Samantha Heck led UE with 18 points. Senior Briyana Blair also reached double figures with 11 points, while junior Meagan Collins and sophomore Katie Ellerson added eight apiece. The Aces look to cut down on their turnovers, committing 31 in the opening game against MSU's scrappy defense. Evansville returns 11 letterwinners from last season, including 4-of-5 starters, in addition to having a new coaching staff.

Junior center Samantha Heck led Evansville with a career-high 18 points and six rebounds in UE's 76-61 loss to Murray State. Heck scored 16 of her points and tallied all six boards in the second half. After recording a perfect shooting percentage and 21 points in UE's exhibition win over Oakland City on Oct. 29, the Auxvasse, Mo. native shot again with consistency, going 7-for-10 from the floor, 2-for-3 from three-point range, and 2-2 from the line. Heck also tallied two assists and a block in 19 minutes of play.

Oties Epps announced last Wednesday the signing of two high school standouts to National Letters of Intent. Guard Laura Friday (Marion, Ind./Marion) and forward Michaela Prough (Crown Point, Ind./Crown Point) will make up the Lady Aces freshman class for the 2012-13 season.

Recording two blocks in UE's loss at Murray State, senior Chelsea Falkenstein is now tied for seventh on Evansville's all-time block list with 49 in her career. She is tied with Heidi Seltzer (2001-05). To move up another spot, Falkenstein needs to log six more to tie for sixth place.

First-year head coach Oties Epps looks for his first career win this weekend. Epps is the 10th head coach in the 42-year history of women's basketball at the University of Evansville. The Aces have reached post-season play four times, including twice in the past four years.

The Purple Aces moved to a new home this season after closing the doors of Roberts Stadium, a building built in 1956. Evansville opened play at the brand new downtown Ford Center, a $127 million arena with a capacity of 10,316, on Oct. 29 in an exhibition game with Oakland City. UE?s first regular season contest at home will be Nov. 29 versus Ball State.

Evansville lost just one player, Stephanie Bamberger, from the 2010-11 squad to graduation. Returning 11 letterwinners, including four seniors, three juniors, and four sophomores, the Aces will have a much more experienced team this season. UE also welcomes three freshmen and three new coaches on staff as the Aces get a fresh start in 2011-12.

Last season, Evansville led the Missouri Valley Conference in steals, averaging 9.8 per game. Returning for her senior season, Briyana Blair piloted the Aces with 71 steals last year, averaging 2.4 per contest.

Senior Staci Gillum and junior Samantha Heck have been named the 2011-12 team captains for the University of Evansville women?s basketball team. Gillum, a native of West Des Moines, Iowa, served as the Purple Aces? captain and point guard last season, averaging 4.2 points and 2.6 rebounds per game, playing in all 30 contests. A transfer from Kirkwood Community College, Gillum was also a captain and led the Eagles to a 73-2 overall record and a pair of national titles in her two years, while also earning NJCAA All-America honors. Heck, an Auxvasse, Mo. native, led the team with 4.9 rebounds per game and finished second on the squad with 9.3 points per game in her sophomore season, while also recording two double-doubles. As a freshman, Heck recorded over 200 points and 100 rebounds in her rookie season, ranking second on the team in both categories at 7.1 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.

The Aces return 11 letterwinners from last season, including four starters in senior Briyana Blair (9.5 ppg), junior Samantha Heck (9.3 ppg), junior Meagan Collins (8.5 ppg), and senior Chelsea Falkenstein (6.1 ppg). Redshirt junior Jordan Lewiswill also make a comeback after a knee injury knocked her out of commission last December. Also returning: senior point guard Staci Gillum, junior Taylor Ware, and sophomores Katie Ellerson, Khristian Hart, Miranda Liles, and Hannah Weedman. Evansville also has three freshmen joining the program in Kat Taylor (Akron, Ohio/Lake Ridge Academy), LeiLoni Smith (Vian, Okla./Vian), and Juliann Miller (Louisville, Ky./Mercy Academy).

UE's three freshmen are Kat Taylor, LeiLoni Smith, and Juliann Miller. Taylor was named honorable mention Northeast Ohio all-district as a junior at Lake Ridge Academy and earned Defensive Player of the Year at St. Vincent- St. Mary?s. Smith scored 400 points, averaging 17.4 per game, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.5 steals in her senior year and was named to the Oklahoma All-Star Team by the Oklahoma Coaches Association. Miller was named the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches Seventh Region Girls Player of the Year Runner Up, and was a 2011 Girls Kentucky All-Star Team selection. She averaged 13 points per game as both a senior and junior and led her team to a state championship.

In their first collegiate game, Kat Taylor saw 19 minutes of action at Murray State, recording five points, all scored at the line with her 5-for-6 performance. She also added two assists and two steals in her debut. Juliann Miller logged eight minutes on the court, going 1-for-1 from the field, pulling down two rebounds and tallying one assist and two points.

With a collective 3.340 grade point average, the University of Evansville women's basketball team ranked 24th in the nation on the Women's Basketball Coaches Association?s Academic Top 25 Honor Roll for 2010-11 season. The honor marked the third time in the last five years in which the Purple Aces have ranked among the nation's Top 25 academically.
