David Gamble has over four decades of balancing art and business in the ceramics industry. While making clay art and teaching, he also developed products and designed marketing campaigns. Gamble has conducted hundreds of workshops in North America, and he has participated in five clay symposiums in Eastern Europe. He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree and contributes an educational focus to the kilns and pottery wheels for Skutt Ceramic Products.

"The glaze surface has always interested me more than the sculptural possibilities in clay," said Gamble. "I layer and multi-fire glaze combinations as if I were using oil paints. I have found I am able to produce what many might consider glaze defects, with some control. This allows me to achieve interesting surfaces, depth, and imagery like I were painting."

* Aces look to capitalize on momentum in Wednesday home game vs. UNI

Looking to build off of the momentum from Sunday’s win over Illinois State, the University of Evansville men’s basketball team welcomes UNI to the Ford Center on Wednesday for a 6 p.m. contest.  ESPN+ and the Purple Aces Radio Network will have the coverage.

Last Time Out
- In a remarkable turnaround, the Purple Aces defeated Illinois State by a 56-53 final at home on Sunday, less than 48 hours after a 94-56 road defeat to the Redbirds
- An inspired defense held ISU to a season-low 53 points while forcing a season-high 21 turnovers
- Shamar Givance led the way for UE with 18 points and 4 assists while Noah Frederking and Evan Kuhlman finished with 14 and 12 points, respectively
- While Frederking led the team with 7 caroms, Preston Phillips finished with six, including an offensive board with 29 seconds remaining that led to the game-winning shot by Givance

What a Turnaround
- In a weekend home-and-home with Illinois State, the Purple Aces saw a massive turnaround over the course of 48 hours
- On Friday in Redbird Arena, ISU defeated UE by a final of 94-56 while shooting 70.2% from the field.  A quick transition saw the squads match up on Sunday at the Ford Center and a focused UE squad earned a scrappy 56-53 win
- Interestingly enough, UE scored the same number of points in each game, but the defense held ISU to 41 fewer points on Sunday
- It was the top defensive improvement from one game to the next since 2017 (not including a pair of 3OT games) - following a 109-83 loss at Wichita State on 2/21/17, UE rebounded with a 65-63 home win over Indiana State on the 25th
- Evansville forced a season-low five turnovers in the road contest, but came back to force the highest turnover total of 21 in the home victory

Clutch Rebounds
- What may have been the most important rebound of the season was hauled in by Preston Phillips in Sunday’s win over Illinois State
- His offensive board with 26 seconds remaining in a tie game led to the game winner from Shamar Givance
- He finished the game with his second-highest total of six rebounds in the winning effort and has averaged 3.5 per game over the course of the season while finishing with 2+ caroms in all but one game he has played in
- Phillips has started five games in a row and seven overall

Still Going Strong
- With 15 seconds remaining in a tie game on Sunday, Shamar Givance hit what would prove to be the game-winner in a 56-53 win over Illinois State
- The senior led UE with 18 points to improve his season average to 14.3 PPG, which ranks 8th in the MVC
- Givance remains in a tie for 4th in the Valley with 1.4 steals per game while his 3.7 assists/contest ranks 5th
- He continues to score at the top rate of his career with his a junior he finished with 13.3 PPG
- In the MVC opener against SIU, he set his career mark with 31 points on 11-of-16 shooting and has scored in double figures in 14 out of 18 games this season

Scouting the Opponent
- Back-to-back overtime losses have seen Northern Iowa drop to 9-9 on the season and 5-3 in Valley play
- On Saturday, the Panthers fell by an 82-74 final at home to Drake after an 83-80 defeat at Valpo last Wednesday
- Leading scorer AJ Green checks in with an average of 18.3 points per game and is coming off of a 27-point outing versus the Bulldogs
- Green has scored 22 or more in three of the last four games
- Noah Carter is averaging 13.9 PPG while Nate Heise sits with 10.3
- Heise along with Trae Berhow lead UNI with 5.0 rebounds per game
