* Aces fall to conference leaders in weekend finale

Extended runs in each set proved to be the difference with Northern Iowa picking up a 3-0 win over the University of Evansville volleyball team on Saturday evening at the McLeod Center.

Giulia Cardona and Melanie Feliciano recorded 9 and 7 kills, respectively, to lead the Purple Aces.  Kora Ruff tallied 16 assists while Ainoah Cruz picked up 11 digs.  Kira Fallert was the top performer for the Panthers, finishing with 14 kills.

Game 1 – UNI 25, UE 12

Chloe Cline picked up a kill for the first point of the night and the Aces took a 2-0 lead.  Northern Iowa countered with a 7-0 run to take their first advantage of the night at 7-2.  Melanie Feliciano pitched in a kill with UE picking up the next two tallies.

Evansville stayed within a handful of points with a Giulia Cardona kill cutting the Evansville deficit to 15-11.  The Panthers responded with a 9-0 run to go up 24-11 before picking up the set win.

Game 2 – UNI 25, UE 13

Once again, things were close in the early moments.  Madisyn Steele and Kora Ruff combined on a block as part of a 3-0 run to open the set.  UNI came back to take a 6-4 lead before a Cardona ace tie the score at 8-8.  Evansville retook the lead at 9-8 on a Panther error.

Another big run by Northern Iowa saw them take control.  Scoring eight in a row, the Panthers went up 16-10.  Following a point by UE, UNI pulled away even more as they took a 2-0 match lead with a 25-13 win.

Game 3 – UNI 25, UE 13

Cardona registered an early kill with the Aces taking a 3-2 advantage.  Four in a row for the Panthers gave them a 6-3 edge before Cardona put a temporary halt to the run with her second kill of the frame.  Northern Iowa got right back to business, adding six in a row to extend the lead to 12-4.

From there, the Panthers clinched the match with a 25-13 victory.  UE returns to Meeks Family Fieldhouse next weekend for its final two home matches of 2023 against Murray State and Belmont.

* Men's basketball opens regular season on Monday

Game one of the 2023-24 University of Evansville men’s basketball season is set for Monday evening when the Purple Aces welcome Miami Ohio to the Ford Center.  Tip is set for 7 p.m. with ESPN+ and the Purple Aces Radio Network covering the action.

Setting the Scene                                                                                                          

- With one exhibition contest under their belts, the Aces square off against the RedHawks in the season opener for the second year in a row

- Last year in Oxford, UE hung on for a 78-74 victory with Kenny Strawbridge Jr. and Yacine Toumi leading the way

- Strawbridge opened his UE career with 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting while Toumi recorded 15 points

- Sekou Kalle played a pivotal role in the game, hauling in 10 rebounds

- The victory marked the first for David Ragland as a Division I head coach

- It marked the first time Evansville won a season-opening game on the road since a 63-51 win over Western Michigan in 1994

Coaching Link

- Aces head coach David Ragland has a connection to Miami assistant Khristian Smith from their days at Indiana State

- Ragland was an assistant coach for the Sycamores in Smith’s first two seasons - 2012-13 and 2013-14

- In those two seasons, ISU was 41-26 with two berths in the Postseason NIT

Season Openers

- Monday will tip off the 105th season of Aces basketball

- In 104 previous season openers, the Aces are 68-36

- This marks the seventh time UE has opened the season at the Ford Center since the building opened in 2011 - the Aces are a perfect 6-0 when playing their season opener at the arena

Last Time Out

- On Oct. 28, Evansville outlasted Wabash for a 76-66 exhibition victory

- The Little Giants opened the game on a 16-5 run and held a 40-39 lead at the break before UE clamped down and finished the game on an 8-0 run to seal the win

- Chuck Bailey III led the way with 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting while Tanner Cuff added 14 points including two triples

- Yacine Toumi had an excellent all-around performance as he totaled 9 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists

- Kenny Strawbridge Jr. added 10 points

Scouting the Opponent

- Miami is coming off a 12-20 campaign that included a 6-12 mark in the Mid-American Conference

- Despite losing its top two scorers from last year (Mekhi Lairy and Morgan Safford), the RedHawks have reason for optimism with the return of Anderson Mirambeaux

- The senior earned a spot on the Preseason All-MAC Second Team following a season that saw him post 14.2 points and 5.7 rebounds per game

- Sophomore Ryan Mabrey recorded 8.4 PPG last season

* Volleyball puts up strong performance in 5-set match at Drake

Following a 25-8 loss in the first set, the University of Evansville volleyball team took two of the ensuing three sets before coming up just short in the fifth as Drake took a 3-2 win on Friday at the Knapp Center.

Melanie Feliciano recorded a match-high 23 kills while Giulia Cardona added 21.  Both picked up double-doubles with Cardona totaling 17 digs and Feliciano finishing with 10.  Ainoah Cruz finished the evening with 15 digs.  Kora Ruff totaled 36 assists with Madisyn Steele and Cardona picking up two blocks each.  Leading Drake was Haley Bush with 21 kills.

Game 1 – Drake 25, UE 8

Holding a 5-3 lead, Drake scored four in a row, which would be the start of a 14-2 stretch that put them up 19-5.  The Bulldogs would cruise to the 17-point victory in the opening frame.

Game 2 – UE 25, Drake 22

Evansville did an excellent job of putting the first set behind them.  Three early Melanie Feliciano kills led to a 5-3 lead.  The Bulldogs tied it up at 6-6 before the Aces wrestled away a 13-11 edge with Feliciano and Giulia Cardona picking up kills.

Drake took three subsequent leads, but a 3-0 run was a big turning point for the Purple Aces.  Down 18-16, a pair of Feliciano points put her team back in front.  After Drake tied it at 19-19, it was Feliciano putting her team in front for good.  Two more kills made it a 21-19 game.  DU got back within one before a Feliciano ace and Cardona kill finished off the set.

Game 3 – Drake 25, UE 14

Ainoah Cruz picked up an early ace with Evansville taking a 2-0 lead.  Cardona picked up a kill to put her team back up by a 5-3 score and it looked as if the teams would have another battle to the finish.  The Bulldogs had other ideas.  A 9-0 run turned the deficit into a 12-5 lead.  UE was unable to overcome the rally as the Bulldogs took a 2-1 match lead with the 25-14 decision.

Game 4 – UE 25, Drake 22

It was the Aces who had the lead throughout the majority of the fourth set.  Two more aces from Cruz put her team up by a 5-1 score.  Feliciano was credited with her second ace of the match to solidify an 11-5 lead.

The lead for UE grew even more when an error by the Bulldogs gave UE an 18-11 advantage.  Capped off by a pair of service aces, the Bulldogs reeled off six in a row to get within one point before eventually tying it up at 21-21.  Evansville forced two errors to retake the lead while Feliciano finished off the 25-22 win with a kill.

Game 5 – Drake 15, UE 8

A quick start by the Bulldogs saw them take a 4-1 lead.  Evansville did its best to come back, getting within one at 7-6.  The Bulldogs countered with five in a row and would clinch the match with the 15-8 win in the fifth game.

Tomorrow, the Aces will be in Cedar Falls to face Northern Iowa at 6 p.m.
