Treasures and Traditions

* Doug Stamps Is First to Correctly Answer Friday's Question

Congratulations to Doug Stamps, professor of mechanical engineering, who was the first person to correctly answer Friday’s Treasure & Traditions question with this reply:  I believe that Brian wrote the lyrics for the 150th celebration of the founding of the university.

The question was: Each evening at 5:00 p.m., the campus bells play "To Face the Future Unafraid." The lyrics for this song were written by former UE Chaplain Brian Erickson. For what occasion did he compose the lyrics?

To Face the Future Unafraid
Given life through founders’ vision, nurtured by a city’s pride.
Under skies that stretch to England, shaping hearts, transforming minds;
From grief’s ashes, risen stronger, side by side, our hist’ry claim.
And with the, dear alma mater, face the future unafraid.




* Redburn Signs Four In Early Signing Period

University of Evansville head softball coach Mark Redburn has announced the signing of four high school standouts during the early signing period. Morgan Baer (Perryville, Mo.), Sarah Baldwin  (Chilicothe, Mo.), Annie Moore (Melrose, Iowa) and Kirsten O'Connor (Muncie, Ind.) will join the Aces for the 2012-13 season.

"I'm really excited about these players coming in next year," says Redburn. "This entire class has played at a very high level for a long period of time. That experience will add to our program's success right away. I suspect that with the loss of four very key, quality seniors, that these four newcomers will be called upon early in their UE softball career."


* Thompson Named First Team MVC Scholar-Athlete

Sophomore Stephanie Thompson was selected one of 12 student-athletes named to the 2011 Missouri Valley Conference women's soccer scholar-athlete team, as announced by the conference office today.

This season, Thompson was both a MVC All-Tournament Team and honorable mention All-MVC selection. Starting all 20 matches, she was second on the squad in scoring with four goals, two assists, and 10 points this fall and led the team with 39 shots, 20 shots on goal, and two game-winning goals. In a must-win match with Missouri State, Thompson clinched UE a berth to the MVC Tournament for the seventh consecutive year with her game-winning overtime free kick goal. The Evansville native had the assist on the game-winning goal over Drake, marking UE’s first of three straight shutout victories. In addition, Thompson’s corner kick in the MVC tournament quarterfinal match led to the game-winning goal and advanced UE to the semifinals.

Academically, the exercise science major owns a perfect 4.0 cumulative grade point average and was named to the UE Student-Athlete Academic Honor Roll.

A total of 44 student-athletes were nominated for the Valley’s scholar-athlete team. The criteria for the honor parallels the CoSIDA standards for Academic All-America voting.

* Volleyball Sends Seniors Off With 3-1 Win Over Bradley

Led by stellar performance from all four seniors, the Purple Aces volleyball team finished up the 2011 season with a 3-1 win over Bradley at the Carson Center on Saturday.

Brooke Maher finished with 17 kills and 17 digs while Kaisi Nixon recorded a 13-kill effort.  Ellen Sawin notched 11 kills and 32 assists while April Lubrecht notched 13 digs.

The seniors helped UE (14-19, 4-14 MVC) to a quick 3-0 start in set number one.  Evansville would hold the lead until Bradley (12-16, 5-13 MVC) fought back to tie the game up at six apiece.  The Braves took their first lead on a UE setting error to go up 14-13 before the Aces tallied the next four points to go up 17-14. 

After the lead flip-flopped back and forth, UE would take a 24-22 lead on a Sawin kill.  The Braves did not relent, scoring the next three before escaping with a 28-26 win on a Megan Schmidt kill.

Game two was another hotly-contested affair.  Evansville was the first to garner a lead of more than a point, going up 9-6 following a pair of Maher kills.  The lead grew to six (17-11) as Rachel TenHoor notched three kills to help the Aces establish their largest lead of the game.

Bradley closed within a pair on two occasions, but two more TenHoor kills took care of the final tallies as UE took a 25-22 win.

Evansville used the momentum it gained from the second game to take a pair of blowout wins in sets three and four.  Bradley held just two leads in the final two games, leading 1-0 and 2-1 in the fourth.  Game three saw UE jump out to a quick 10-4 lead as four Aces recorded early kills.

The Aces continued to add to the lead as it would reach double digits for the first time when Hannah Wilson notched a kill to put UE up 24-14.  Nixon finished off the set with a kill of her own.

Set four saw the Braves keep it close early, but with the score tied at 6-6, five-straight UE points would be all they would need to cruise to the win.  Three Bradley errors along with kills by Sawin and Nixon contributed to the run.  Once again, the lead would only grow from that point as the Aces finished off the match and their season with a 25-14 win.

Aside from the four seniors, Rachel TenHoor put up a 12-kill effort while Katie Klages recorded 15 digs.  Amy ANgelos led Bradley with 13 kills while Alise Tupuritis notched 12.  Madison Kamp led everyone with 44 assists.


* Aces Men's Hoops Grabs 80-53 Win Over Oakland City

Junior Ned Cox tied his career high with 16 points as the University of Evansville men’s basketball team cruised to an 80-53 victory over Oakland City on Saturday at the Ford Center.

Cox was one of five players to score in double digits for Evansville (2-1).  Colt Ryan tallied 15 points while Kenneth Harris had 13.  Troy Taylor scored 11 while freshman Jordan Nelson had ten.  Taylor recorded the first double-double of the season for UE, grabbing a game-high 11 rebounds.

“Midway through the first half, I think we played with better effort, but we did not finish up the half strong,” head coach Marty Simmons said.  “I thought our guys came out strong in the second half.  I think our guys got better with the last two days of practice and better during the game today.”

A back-and-forth affair ensued over the opening minutes.  Evansville scored the opening three points of the game before Mitch Stahl knocked down a trey to make it a 3-3 game.  Ned Cox quickly responded with a three of his own before Cameron LeFear buried two threes in 30 seconds to give the Mighty Oaks a 9-6 lead.

Cox tied it up with a bucket and free throw as the Aces went on a 14-3 run to go up 20-12.  The advantage for UE would grow to as many as 12 points in the opening period as Lewis Jones hit a layup to go up 29-17 with 8:19 remaining, but a late run by OCU made it a 36-29 game at the half.  With 25 seconds remaining in the period, Ethan Knepp hit OCU’s ninth trey of the game to cut the deficit to seven.  The Mighty Oaks hit just one two-point field goal in the first half.

After regrouping at the break, Evansville took over in the early portion of the second half, recording the first 14 points.  The Aces hit five of their first six baskets while forcing Oakland City to miss their first five shots and five turnovers in the first four minutes of the period.  Ryan scored six points in the run while forcing a pair of steals.

It was all Aces from that point as they would lead by as many as 28 points before the final of 80-53.  Evansville got better in all phases in the second period, shooting 66.7% while holding OCU to 30% shooting.  UE also held the Mighty Oaks scoreless from three-point range in the latter period.

Ethan Knepp was the top scorer for OCU with 15 points while Mitch Stahl had 13.  After shooting 50% in the first half, OCU was just 9-of-30 in the second stanza. 

On Wednesday, the Aces will make their first road trip of the season, traveling to Illinois-Chicago.  The Aces and Flames tip off at 7 p.m.  Colt Ryan will look to record his 1,000th point with UE.  He stands just seven shy of the plateau.

* Women's Basketball Battles But Falls To Bowling Green, 71-54

Closing the gap to three points in the second half after falling behind as much as 16 points in the opening period, the University of Evansville women’s basketball team could not hold on Sunday afternoon at Bowling Green State University’s Stroh Center, as the Falcons’ late run resulted in a 71-54 defeat. With the loss, the Purple Aces fall to 0-3 on the season, while the defending Mid-American Conference champions improve to 1-2.

Junior Taylor Ware led the Aces offensively with a career-high 17 points, shooting 4-for-6 from the floor and had a perfect 9-for-9 performance at the free throw line. Ware also added six rebounds, five of them offensively. Classmate Samantha Heck tallied nine points and six boards, while senior Chelsea Falkenstein had a team-high 10 rebounds and added seven points. Sophomore Katie Ellerson also had seven points, including two threes.

Bowling Green got off to a fast start, going on a 7-0 run to begin the game. Junior Jordan Lewis put the Aces on the board at the 17:24 mark with a layup on the right side.

The Falcons stretched their lead to 10 points, 15-5, with 12:39 remaining in the first half and then went on an 8-0 run following Falkenstein’s jumper at the 12:01 mark, for BGSU’s largest lead of the half, 23-7, with 9:12 remaining.

However, Evansville came storming back in the final minutes of the half, going on a 10-1 run to cut the deficit to four points on Ellerson’s three-pointer with 1:26 to go. In the run, Ellerson knocked down two from beyond the arch and Ware tallied four from the charity stripe.

Bowling Green answered with five unanswered points, but Ware’s layup with 26 seconds remaining sent the squads into the locker rooms with a 36-29 score.

After Jessica Slagle’s basket to start the second half, Evansville held the Falcons scoreless for the next 3:20 minutes, forcing three turnovers. Layups by Staci Gillum and Falkenstein put the Aces within three, 38-35, at the 17:37 mark.
Bowling Green steadily built a 10-point lead, 47-37, with 12:39 remaining. Hanging in there, Evansville stayed within 10 until the Falcons went on a 10-0 run between the 7:51 mark and 4:19 mark. Back-to-back threes by Noelle Yoder and Jasmine Matthews put the dagger in, and forced the Aces to call a timeout. Danielle Havel capped the run with a layup, making it a 20-point game, 65-45, with 4:19 left.

Briyana Blair’s lay-in and three put the Aces within 13 with 2:59 to go, but that would be as close as Evansville would get.

Chrissy Steffen led BGSU with 16 points, as three Falcons reached double figures.

Bowling Green outshot the Aces, 36.9-33.3 percent from the field, also forcing the Aces into 23 turnovers with 15 steals. Evansville won the battle of the boards, 43-42.

The Aces are back in action Friday when the team travels to Orono, Maine, competing in the Dead River Company Classic. Evansville takes on Brown University of the Ivy League at 3 p.m. The Aces will play either Maine or Troy University on Saturday in the consolation or championship game.


* Aces Finish Strong In The Last Day Of Invitational

The University of Evansville’s men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams finish second and third, respectively.  The women finished third with a total of 1104 points.  The men’s kept their second place finish with a total of 1118.
“I think this is a great rehearsal for the conference coming up in March,” said head coach Rickey Perkins.  “It went really well.  Freshman Michelle Tipton really stepped up.  Michea Reinitz came back strong after an injury and really helped out with the relays.  I’m really happy with team overall.”

For the women’s team, freshman Michelle Tipton continued to excel with a third place finish in the 100-yard freestyle in 52.20.  Freshman Samantha Montgomery notched a fourth place finish in the 200-yard butterfly in 2:08.67.  Senior Alex Howard, junior Michea Reinitz, Tipton and Montgomery took third place in the 400-yard freestyle relay with a final time of 3:32.48.
