* 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.

Athletics

* Cunliffe and Hall Leads Aces at Illinois State

Sam Cunliffe and John Hall finished with 15 and 13 points, respectively, to lead the University of Evansville men’s basketball team in a 77-66 loss to Illinois State on Wednesday evening inside Redbird Arena.

Cunliffe hit six field goals and three triples on his way to the 15-point effort.  He set his season mark with nine rebounds.  Hall had his top game since December 7 against Miami Ohio – tallying 13.  He was 5-for-8 from the floor and hit three triples of his own.  K.J. Riley finished the evening with ten points.

“It was a game of runs.  I thought our execution at times was good, especially with the limited amount of time we have spent together,” UE head coach Todd Lickliter said.  “They (ISU) hit two 3’s and it changed so fast.  Our guys have played some really good basketball but we have struggled with our consistency and that is where we will work to help them.  Our guys have continued to play with effort and I am proud of how hard they have worked.”

Fresh off of a career-high of 12 points on Sunday at Valparaiso, sophomore Jawaun Newton converted a 4-point play in the opening possession before Sam Cunliffe added a triple to give the Aces (9-13, 0-9 MVC) a 7-0 lead two minutes into the game.  Illinois State (7-14, 2-7 MVC) rebounded with three triples but another trey courtesy of John Hall saw the UE lead stand at 10-9 at the 15-minute mark.

Illinois State grabbed its first lead of the night a minute later at 11-10 and would go up by as many as four in the opening 20 minutes.  As the midway point of the first half approached, Noah Frederking knocked down his first long ball before an and-one from Shamar Givance tied the score at 19-19 with 9:38 on the clock before an Evan Kuhlman bucket on the ensuing possession put the Aces back in front. 

With the score knotted at 24-24 two minutes later, the Aces had their top stretch of the half, going on a 9-1 run to open up their largest lead at 33-25.  Consecutive three’s by John Hall anchored the run before Cunliffe knocked down his second outside shot.  Over the final 3:34 of the half, Illinois State rallied back with an 11-4 run to cut the Evansville lead to 37-36 at the break.  Hall led the Aces with 11 first-half points.

The opening possession of the second half saw the Redbirds knocked down their ninth 3-pointer of the game as they recorded the first five points of the half to retake a 41-37 lead.  UE never relented and fought back with another triple from Cunliffe and a dunk by Hall to take a 46-45 edge at the 14:01 mark.  K.J. Riley added a pair of baskets to help Evansville go back in front at 51-47.

ISU responded with a 10-0 stretch while keeping the Aces scoreless for a 3-minute stretch.  A timely three by Frederking got the Aces back on the board to make it a one-possession game  - 57-54.  The Redbirds fought right back to take their largest lead at 64-56 inside of eight minutes left.  It was UE’s senior righting the ship as his old fashioned 3-point play cut the deficit to five.

Another 3-pointer by Illinois State made it a double figure game and they would add to it, going up by 18 points in the final moments while holding the Aces scoreless for a stretch of six minutes before finishing with a 77-66 win.  Leading the Redbirds was Jaycee Hillsman, who posted 20 points.  Keith Fisher III finished with 16 points and 9 rebounds. 

Evansville finished with the shooting edge at 47.2% while holding ISU to 46.7%.  In three games under Coach Lickliter, the UE offense has improved each time out while showing improvement on the glass with each team finishing the evening with 31 rebounds.

An Orange Out is on tap Saturday when UE welcomes UNI to the Ford Center for a 1 p.m. game.  A 2 for 1 premium ticket special for the game runs through the end of the workday on Friday (5 p.m.) at the Carson Center Ticket Office.

* Eryn Gould Named to Preseason All-Conference Team

Junior Eryn Gould was named to the 2020 Softball Preseason All-Missouri Valley Conference Team on Wednesday in announcement by the league, which including the preseason poll.

“I am happy for Eryn to be named to the preseason team,” University of Evansville head softball coach Mat Mundell said.  “She had a tremendous year at the plate last season.  I am excited to see what her and her teammates can accomplish this spring.”

As a team, the Purple Aces were picked to finish 8th in the conference.  Last year, UE completed the season with a 19-30 record while going 9-16 in conference play. 

Eryn Gould is coming off of another banner campaign that culminated in her being named to the All-MVC First Team for the second time in as many seasons.  She also picked up a nod on the 2019 All-Tournament Team for her efforts at the 2019 MVC Softball Championship.

Gould led the Aces in several categories, batting .306 with 10 home runs, 31 RBI, 30 runs scored and 35 walks.  A starter in all 49 games, Gould was 7-for-10 in stolen bases.

The native of Mt. Carmel, Ill. had a 12-game hit streak in April and was named the MVC Player of the Week on April 22.  During her hitting streak, Gould batted .515, recording 17 hits in 33 at-bats.

Just over a week remains until the start of the 2020 season.  The Aces travel to Rosemont, Ill. for the Total Control Sports Invitational, which takes place from February 7-9.  Miami Ohio, Butler, Western Illinois, IUPUI and Green Bay will be the opponents.
