* Think Outside the Lunch Box

This month, the University of Evansville’s Think Outside the Lunch Box Faculty Speaker Series will present "Sports Injuries and Your Children: Learn the Warning Signs." The event will feature Department of Physical Therapy faculty members Dr. Kyle Kiesel and Dr. Phil Plisky, who will discuss their internationally acclaimed research on injury risk identification and prevention.

Kiesel and Plisky will speak at noon on Thursday, February 2, in the Blue & Gold Room on the first floor of Old National Bank’s headquarters in Downtown Evansville. The event is free and open to the public.

“We have conducted research on professional, collegiate, and high school athletes, as well as U.S. Army soldiers, to help them prevent injuries and improve their performance,” Plisky said. “We look forward to speaking at February’s Think Outside the Lunch Box event and discussing how this research can benefit local families with active children or grandchildren.”

“Participating in sports and other physical activities can teach a child valuable lessons such as discipline and teamwork, but of course, they also bring a risk of injury,” Kiesel added. “The good news is that many sports injuries are preventable. It’s crucial that parents and other family members of active children learn to recognize the warning signs.”

Attendees are welcome to eat lunch during the event. There is a restaurant conveniently located in the Old National Bank lobby.

“The winning qualities of this perennially popular a cappella group … are still strong,” wrote New York Times music reviewer Vivien Schweitzer after seeing the group perform last October. “Their impressive vocal blend, purity of tone, and distinctive individual voices, which have helped them sell almost two million copies of their albums on the Harmonia Mundi label, were beautifully highlighted.”

University of Evansville head men’s soccer coach Mike Jacobs and his staff have announced the signing of six recruits to National Letters of Intent. The class includes key contributors in the United States Soccer Development Academy, highlighting one of the top classes in the nation. The newest Purple Aces include Ryan Coates (Springboro, Ohio), Vincent DiPrimio (Bloomington, Ind.), Faik Hajderovic (St. Louis, Mo.), William “Mack” Hasinger (Morton, Ill.), Nate Opperman (Olathe, Kan.) and Kyle Wilson (Evansville, Ind.).

“We believe that adding this incoming group gives us quality personnel and depth in every position, and we should have all the pieces we need to be an outstanding team,” said Jacobs. “We are excited to welcome this group to the University of Evansville Purple Aces family.” 

COATES, Ryan
5-8* 150* Springboro, Ohio* Springboro HS

Coates will come to the University of Evansville with extensive experience in both the US Soccer Development Academy and playing in the USYSA. Ryan competed with the 15/16 Ohio Elite team in the USSDA, and currently plays for the Blast FC team that has been Ohio South State Finalists in 2010 and 2011. His performance at the youth level enabled him with the opportunity to train at the youth academy of Chelsea FC. The team MVP and first team all-region at Springboro High School, Coates also has been a regular on the Ohio South Olympic Development Program team. Coates was an Aces Soccer Camp All-Star in 2010 and 2011, and was named the camp’s Most Valuable Player in 2011.  

JACOBS ON COATES – “Ryan is the kind of person that we look for in our program – he has an outstanding attitude, and tremendous work-ethic and commitment. His ability to play both in the back and in midfield will add versatility and depth to our team.” 

DIPRIMIO, Vincent
5-10* 165* Bloomington, Ind.* Bloomington HS North

DiPrimio is an industrious central midfielder who is very active on both sides of the ball. He has been a mainstay and key contributor for the Indiana United Fire Academy of the United States Soccer Development Academy. DiPrimio has been a standout at the high school level as well, having been recognized as an all-state honoree for Bloomington High School North as both a junior and senior. During his high school career, DiPrimio helped lead Bloomington High School North to four sectional titles and one regional title. He was recognized as a member of the 2011 ESPN Indiana All-State Starting 11. A standout on the field and in the classroom, DiPrimio is also a member of the National Honor Society.

JACOBS ON DIPRIMIO – “Vince is a tremendous competitor with an outstanding engine. He figures to add strength and versatility to our midfield.”

HAJDEROVIC, Faik
5-8* 145* St. Louis, Mo.* Mehlville Senior HS

Hajderovic is a dynamic attacking player, and is regarded as one of the top goal scoring prospects in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The leading goal scorer for the Saint Louis Scott Gallagher Metro team of the United States Soccer Development Academy, Hajderovic was recognized as a member of the 2011 ESPN Missouri All-State Starting 11. He was key in leading his club team to USYSA Missouri State Cup Championships at the Under-13, Under-14 and Under-15 levels before going to join the USSDA. Hajderovic was an Aces Soccer Camp All-Star in 2011. 

JACOBS ON HAJDEROVIC – “Faik has the potential to be a dangerous attacking player at the collegiate level. He can create and finish scoring chances, and always puts himself in threatening spots with and without the ball.”

HASINGER, William “Mack”
5-10* 145* Morton, Ill.* Morton HS

Hasinger is a versatile attacking player who can play in the midfield or up front.  He plays for Saint Louis Scott Gallagher Metro of the US Soccer Development Academy, and was the team’s second leading scorer a year ago – including two game-winning goals. Hasinger is a teammate of fellow incoming classmate Faik Hajderovic on SLSG Metro. An All-State selection at Morton High School, he helped his team to a school record in goals scored (104) and wins in a season (21). Hasinger was selected as his team MVP, as well as to the 2011 Peoria Journal Star All-Area Team, and as MVP of Mid Illini Conference in the Peoria Sports Verein High School Soccer Coaches Association Senior All-Star Game.

JACOBS ON HASINGER – “Mack is a creative attacking player. He can create and finish scoring chances, and can do so out of midfield or out on the flanks.”

OPPERMAN, Nate
6-0* 170* Olathe, Kan.* Olathe South HS

Opperman has been a successful goal scorer at the youth and high school levels. A charter member of the Sporting Kansas City developmental academy in the USSDA, he received the 2011 Bob Gansler Award as the Most Outstanding Sporting Kansas City Junior player. As a member of the Sporting Kansas City 15/16 team in 2011, Opperman was the team’s leading scorer and paved the way for SKC to advance into the United States Soccer Development Academy Playoffs. He also participated in and led Sporting Kansas City in scoring in the prestigious Generation Adidas Cup for Major League Soccer youth academy teams. A four-year starter at Olathe South High School, Opperman led his team to a Kansas State Championship and runner-up finish during his career. 

JACOBS ON OPPERMAN – “Nate has been a proficient goal scorer at every level he has played at, but what makes him special is an outstanding work-ethic and ability to compete. The combination of those attributes, along with his ability to create and finish scoring chances, will make him an asset immediately.”

WILSON, Kyle
5-11* 150* Evansville, Ind.* Mater Dei HS

Wilson comes to the University of Evansville after an outstanding career at the high school and youth levels. Wilson has been one of the key contributors for the Evansville Soccer Club team which won the 2010 Indiana Youth Soccer Association State Championship and has been state finalists three times. Wilson is coached at ESC by former University of Evansville coach Fred Schmalz. His Mater Dei High School team was 2011 Indiana State finalists, and were sectional champions for three consecutive years.

A member of the Indiana Olympic Development Program, Wilson is a three-time Aces Soccer Camp All-Star. 

JACOBS ON WILSON – “Kyle has grown up around Aces Soccer, and it is massive for us to be able to have members of our program who ‘bleed purple.’ His athleticism and versatility makes him someone that has the potential to contribute in a number of different roles.”

 

* Evansville Rebounds With 92-62 Win At Bradley

A pair of Aces recorded the first double-doubles of their careers as the University of Evansville men’s basketball team cruised to a 92-62 victory over Bradley on Wednesday night at Carver Arena.

Freshman Ryan Sawvell recorded 16 rebounds, the most an Evansville (11-11, 6-6 MVC) player has had this season while tallying 12 points.  Senior Denver Holmes tied his career-high with 23 points and dished out a career-high 11 assists.

“That was outstanding effort, something you do not see every night,” head coach Marty Simmons said.  “We had the effort and sharpness on both ends of the floor.  We are proud of those guys.”

Evansville was strong from the outset, jumping out to an 8-2 lead before stretching it to 16-6.  The Aces forced five turnovers in the first four minutes while four players chipped in four points apiece.  The lead would only grow over the remainder of the period, leading by as many as 29 points (53-24) inside the final minute before a half-court shot at the buzzer by Jalen Crawford made it a 26-point deficit at the half.

UE forced 13 turnovers in the period while owning a 19-9 rebounding advantage and a 66.7-43.5% shooting advantage.

Freshman Ryan Sawvell was the dominant force in the opening stanza, notching his first career double-double with 10 points and 11 boards in the first 20 minutes.  He was one of three Aces to hit double digits in the first half as Colt Ryan and Denver Holmes had 11 apiece.

Another freshman, Jaylon Moore, also made an impact.  In just two minutes of action, Moore hit a pair of shots, including his first collegiate dunk.

Bradley made a bit of a run early in the second period.  Including the final shot of the period and extended into the second, the Braves embarked on an 11-4 stretch to cut the deficit to 24 points (59-35), but Evansville was able to stretch the lead back to 29 as Ryan knocked down his first three of the game to make it a 64-35 lead for UE.

Dyricus Simms-Edwards kept the Braves in the game, scoring nine-straight points for the Braves as part of a 12-2 run to get the deficit under 20 for the first time since the first period at 66-47.  It was too little, too late, though, for the Braves as the Aces re-extended the lead and would cruise to the 92-62 win.  Evansville led by as many as 32 points in the final two minutes.

After scoring a career-high 39 points in the last game against Bradley, Ryan tallied 24 points to lead UE.  Ned Cox was the fifth Aces in double figures with ten.  Jaylon Moore had the top scoring output of his career, finishing with six points on a perfect 3-for-3 effort, which included a pair of dunks.

Taylor Brown, the No. 4 scorer in the MVC, led BU with 18 points.  He connected on 6-of-14 shots on the night.  Jake Eastman had 11 while Jordan Prosser notched 10.

For the first time since November 28, 1998 at Hawaii Hilo, the Aces grabbed a 30-point road win.  UE also picked up its first win in Carver Arena since 2002.  The 31 assists marked the most ever by an opponent at Carver Arena while the 41 baskets were the most against the Braves since 1977.

Evansville was extremely unselfish in the game, recording 31 assists on 41 shots.  It marked the top assist mark in the Coach Simmons era at UE.  The Aces also finished with their largest rebounding edge of the season, tallying 40 while holding Bradley to just 25.

Southern Illinois is up next for the Aces as they travel to Carbondale, Ill. on Saturday before coming home to face nationally-ranked Creighton on Tuesday, February 7.
 

* Lady Aces Hit The Road To Bradley And UNI

The University of Evansville women’s basketball team looks to capture a series sweep over Bradley when they travel to Peoria, Ill. Thursday night. The Aces overcame the Braves, 71-59, at the Ford Center Jan. 8th and hope to repeat when UE kicks off the second half of the Missouri Valley Conference. Tip-off at Renaissance Coliseum is set for 7:00 p.m. CT. Evansville will also take on Northern Iowa Saturday at 7:00 p.m.


The Aces come off a 74-60 loss to travel partner Southern Illinois in last week’s lone game. Evansville hopes to put an end to their five-game losing streak and capture its first road victory of the season. Leading the way for UE offensively is junior forward Samantha Heck and senior guard Briyana Blair. Heck averages 13.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game, while Blair nearly averages a double-double with 10.7 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. Juniors Meagan Collins (8.0 ppg, 3.8 rpg) and Taylor Ware (6.7 ppg, 3.4 rpg) have also been steady contributors on the scoring end.

In her third season of play, Samantha Heck is climbing up Evansville’s career blocks list, totaling 46 so far. She currently ranks 9th all-time and needs three more to move up another spot.

Senior Briyana Blair has single handedly recorded more double-doubles in one season than the entire UE team logged in the last two years. Versus Southern Illinois on Sunday, Blair achieved her sixth double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds. In the 2010-11 season, the team combined for three double-doubles, while they recorded zero in 2009-10. Blair has the most double-doubles in a single season since Jamie Gray logged 12 in 2003-04.

In UE’s lone game of the week, junior Samantha Heck led Evansville with 21 points, matching her career-high, while also grabbing nine rebounds and adding two assists, a block, and a steal. Heck scored nine of the Aces’ first 10 points of the contest, including the first seven. She also took a career-high 10 free throws, making a career-high seven from the line. On the season, Heck pilots the Aces offensively with 13.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.

Evansville has used five different starting lineups this season with point guard Staci Gillum and forward Samantha Heck serving as the only players to start all 20 games. Heck has started 31 games consecutively for the Aces; the longest streak among active players.

Sophomore Miranda Liles had a career game versus Missouri State (1/21), co-leading Evansville with 11 points, which surpassed her previous career-high of nine points set against the Lady Bears last season (3/3/11). Liles also matched career bests in rebounds (4), field goals made (3), and steals (1). In addition, the Alabama native made a season-high four free throws (4-of-5), coming off the bench for 20 minutes of action.

What has become a tradition of the last decade, the University of Evansville women’s basketball team will host the 10th annual Hoops For The Cure game Sunday February 12th, when the Purple Aces host Drake University. Tipoff at the Ford Center is set for 1:00 p.m. Hoops For The Cure is a collaborative partnership between the UE athletics department, UE women’s basketball program, and the Greater Evansville Affiliate of Susan G. Komen For The Cure, which is designed to help raise awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Tickets for the 2012 Hoops For The Cure will be discounted to $5.00, with half of the ticket proceeds going to Susan G. Komen For The Cure to aid in breast cancer research. T-shirts will be available for $10 and tons of great prizes will be auctioned off with all proceeds being donated to the foundation. The Lady Aces will trade in their normal home white jerseys for ones with a pink twist, while fans are also highly encouraged to wear pink in support of the cause.

Evansville’s game vs. Drake on Feb. 12 will be aired on ESPN 3.

The Aces will play the Valley foes for the second time around starting this week at Bradley and Northern Iowa. UE beat BU, 71-59, at the Ford Center on Jan. 8th, and fell to UNI, 61-51, on Jan. 5th. The last time UE went into the second half of the season with a 1-8 record was in the 2009-10 season.
Entering the week, Briyana Blair ranks 37th in the nation, and second in the MVC averaging 9.6 rebounds per game. Blair’s 20 rebounds in UE’s last outing vs. Bradley not only represented a career-high, but also marked the first time a player has pulled down 20 or more boards in a game since 1998, when Shyla McKibbon tallied 23, also versus Bradley.

Briyana Blair is the MVC’s leading thief and ranks 71st in the nation averaging 2.6 steals per game. In just a season and a half, Blair has recorded 120 career steals. She is 19 steals away from breaking into UE’s career top-ten and tying Angie McGrew (1986-89) with 139. Last season, Blair logged 71 steals, ranking her sixth in UE’s single-season record book. She is currently 11 steals away from breaking into the single-season top 10 again, swiping 49 so far this year.

Samantha Heck extended her double-figure point streak to 14 games vs. Wichita State, scoring all 10 points in the second half. Heck owns the longest double-digit streak since Meagan Liffick in the 2005-06 season when Liffick scored 10 or more points in the first 19 games of the year and in 28-of-29 games. However, the streak has come to an end at 14 for Heck, after Missouri State (1/21) held her to four points.

Senior Chelsea Falkenstein will be out the remainder of the season with a torn ACL. Falkenstein injured her knee in UE’s game at UT Martin on Dec. 16. Because she missed two games earlier this season due to a concussion suffered versus Ball State on Nov. 29, she is eligible to redshirt. Falkenstein averaged 3.6 points and 5.5 rebounds before the season-ending injury. She had surgery on Friday, Jan. 20th.

Freshman Kat Taylor will also be out the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL occurring in practice on Monday, Jan. 16th. Taylor played in 13 games in her rookie campaign, averaging 1.8 points, and 1.1 rebounds.

Briyana Blair leads UE with six double-doubles this season: Brown (11 pts, 14 rebs) on Nov. 25, Eastern Kentucky (17 pts, 10 rebs) on Dec. 2, Illinois State (11 pts, 14 rebs) on Jan. 1, Bradley (19 pts, 20 rebs), and Drake (13 pts, 14 rebs), SIU (10 pts, 10 rebs). Samantha Heck recorded her first of the year vs. Wichita State (10 pts, 10 rebs), marking the third of her career. Meagan Collins is also a part of the three-person club with double-doubles to their name, tallying one in 2010-11

Currently, she still holds the record for field goals (718), now ranks third in assists (448), sixth in steals (164) and seventh in free throws made (277).  In addition, she was the NCAA Division I national free throw percentage leader in the 1983-84 season.
