* Professor Kimberling Publishes Research Article

Clark Kimberling, Professor of Mathematics, has a research article in the current issue of Journal of Geometry, viewable at https://rdcu.be/b0HTu. Entitled "Polynomial triangle centers on the line at infinity," the article presents newly discovered points in the extended plane of an abstract triangle and their relationships, using homogeneous barycentric coordinates that are polynomial functions of the variable sidelengths of the triangle. The final section of the paper, entitled "Historical comments," cites a prophetic article in the American Mathematical Monthly on "The rise, fall, and possible transfiguration of triangle geometry: a mini-history." Now, 25 years later, Dr. Kimberling's article discusses the actual transfiguration that has taken place, including the development of the UE-based Encyclopedia of Triangle Centers - ETC, https://faculty.evansville.edu/ck6/encyclopedia/ETC.html. The number of triangle centers presented in ETC has grown considerably during the past year with contributions from around the world. Last semester, the number of entries passed 36,000.

* UE Men Continue Road Trip at Illinois State

Wednesday will mark the second game of a road swing for the University of Evansville men’s basketball team with the Purple Aces heading to Normal, Ill. to face Illinois State in a 7 p.m. game.  ESPN+ and the Purple Aces Radio Network have the coverage.

Setting the Scene                
- Following a strong second-half showing at Valparaiso that saw the Aces outscore the Crusaders by a 42-31 margin in the second half while cutting an 18-point deficit into just two points, UE continues on the road at ISU
- Evansville took many positives from Sunday’s game including a 36-31 rebounding edge and 11 offensive caroms, just one off of the season high - it was the second time in the last ten games that the Aces finished with the rebounding advantage
- The Aces look to reverse a recent trend against the Redbirds, falling in the last nine meetings with the last UE victory coming on January 25, 2016 inside Redbird Arena
- The Aces look to right the ship following an 0-8 start to its MVC slate; UE is trying to avoid the 0-13 start to the 2009-10 league schedule

Last Time Out
- After falling behind by as many as 18 points in the first half, the Aces made a second half rally before coming up just short in a 67-65 loss at Valpo on Sunday
- The Aces chipped away over the course of the second half and used some late magic to get within two points in the final minute
- Sam Cunliffe led the way with 16 points, his top game since Dec. 7 when he had 21 against Miami Ohio
- Jawaun Newton and K.J. Riley added 12 points each while Noah Frederking scored 11
- Newton’s final tally marked his career high, surpassing his previous mark of nine
- UE finished with 13 assists against 12 turnovers - it was the first positive ratio since the first meeting against Valpo

Turning the corner
- Entering the game at Valparaiso, Coach Lickliter had the opportunity to run just two practices, but his expertise was already showing on the floor
- Through two games, opponents are shooting just 35.2% in the second half, hitting 19 out of 54 attempts
- The offense improved from shooting 30.2% and posting 14 points in the paint versus the Bulldogs to 40.0% and 28 points down low against the Crusaders

Scouting the Opponent
- Illinois State sits at 6-14 overall and 1-7 in MVC action
- Since defeating UNI in the Valley opener, the Redbirds have dropped their last seven match-ups including a 58-55 contest against Southern Illinois on Saturday at Redbird Arena
- Zach Copeland paces the ISU offense with 15.7 points per game along with a team-high 24 steals
- He has team highs in field goal makes (108), 3-point field goals (54) and free throw conversions (44)
- Keith Fisher III has a team-high 5.6 rebounds per game and ranks second in scoring with 8.0 PPG
- Each of ISU’s wins this season have come at home with them posting a 6-4 mark at Redbird Arena
