* NCAA releases 2022-23 Academic Progress Rate report

On Tuesday, the NCAA released its latest Academic Progress Report (APR), which holds institutions accountable for the academic progress of their student-athletes through a team-based metric that accounts for the eligibility and retention of each student-athlete for each academic term.

Data submitted for the 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22 and 2022-23 academic years is included in the latest report.  Two University of Evansville programs are being recognized for their multi-year APR scores.  The Purple Aces women’s volleyball and men’s golf teams were honored for being in the top 10% of NCAA Division I.

“This recognition is a testament to the hard work put in by our student-athletes, coaches and staff,” UE Athletics Director Dr. Ziggy Siegfried said.  “To have two of our programs rank in the top 10% nationally is a prestigious honor for the University of Evansville and our athletics department.”

The four-year Academic Progress Rate national average for Division I teams remained steady at 984 this year, as the division marked the 20th anniversary of APR data collection. During those 20 years, overall student-athlete academic success has risen substantially.

Compared with the four-year period prior to the COVID-19 pandemic (2015-16 through 2018-19), the overall national four-year average across all sports increased one point. At the sport level, changes in the national average were small. Compared with pre-pandemic averages, baseball increased 1 point to 978, football fell 1 point to 963, men’s basketball increased 2 points to 968 and women’s basketball decreased 2 points to 981.

Dave Schnase, NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs, said, “Student-athletes have achieved incredible success in the classroom over the last 20 years, mostly due to the hard work and commitment to academic achievement by student-athletes on campuses across the country.

“In addition, the unprecedented success is in part due to the work of the Committee on Academics and its predecessor, the Committee on Academic Performance. The policy changes they made, including initial-eligibility standards and progress-toward-degree requirements, along with on-campus support for student-athletes, contributed to the high rates we are seeing now.”

Each academic year, every Division I sports team’s APR is calculated using a simple and consistent formula. Scholarship student-athletes can earn 1 point for staying on course for a degree in their chosen major and 1 point for being retained (or graduating) at the end of each academic term. For schools that do not offer athletics scholarships, recruited student-athletes are tracked.

This is the third consecutive year of publicly reported APRs after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, the Division I board approved the release of APR scores but voted to continue the suspension of program penalties. After further review, the Committee on Academics is not enforcing the loss of access to postseason competition for teams that have scored lower than 930. Instead, a conditional waiver is being offered this year due to lingering impacts of COVID-19.

* Baseball Aces Win Greenville (N.C.) Regional With 6-5 Win Over East Carolina

The University of Evansville baseball team became just the ninth No. 4 seed to win an NCAA Tournament Regional on Monday afternoon, as the fourth-seeded Purple Aces outlasted the host and #16 national seed East Carolina Pirates, 6-5, at Clark-LeClair Stadium in Greenville, North Carolina.

“What a tremendous moment for our program!” said UE head coach Wes Carroll.  “I thought that Nick Smith did a tremendous job of setting the tone for us today, and then what Max Hansmann and Shane Harris was able to do out of the pen was really special.  Offensively, we had guys step up once again, and what a great bounce-back performance from last night.  Our guys never wavered this weekend, and they represented the University and this program so well, and I couldn’t be more proud of them for that.

“I also want to thank the people at East Carolina and their fans for a tremendous environment and regional experience.  The environment was special, and the fans were in to every game, and it made it a very special weekend of baseball.”

Senior starter Nick Smith kept East Carolina scoreless for the first two innings on Monday, and his teammates helped give him an early lead with single runs in the first and second innings.  Senior designated hitter Kip Fougerousse continued his torrid stretch with a long solo home run to dead center field in the first inning to not only give UE the lead, but also tie the Evansville single-season home run record with his 21st home run of the year.  Fougerousse has now homered in six-straight games and in eight of nine games overall.

A walk, a wild pitch, an infield single and a throwing error by ECU helped UE plate its second run of the contest in the second inning.  The Pirates would rebound with two runs in the third inning to tie the game, but Smith kept the score tied at 2-2 until the fifth inning with four strong innings of work on the mound.

The Pirates would rally for three runs in the fifth inning on just one base hit, before sophomore reliever Max Hansmann (2-1) would come on to shut down the inning with ECU leading 5-2.  Evansville would immediately respond with a run in the bottom of the fifth inning on a lead-off double by senior shortstop Simon Scherry, a single by graduate outfielder Mark Shallenberger, and an RBI ground out by Fougerousse to trim the deficit to 5-3.

Shallenberger would then launch one of the most important home runs in UE history in the sixth inning with a three-run blast to right-center field to give UE a 6-5 lead.  From there, Hansmann would retire six of the next eight ECU batters to keep the score at 6-5 going into the ninth inning.  Senior reliever Shane Harris then came out of the UE bullpen and set down the Pirates in order to earn his third save of the year and help UE secure its first Regional Tournament championship in program history.

Shallenberger went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI to help lead the UE offense.  Fougerousse also went 1-for-3 with his fourth home run of the Regional Tournament on his way to earning the Greenville (N.C.) Regional Tournament Most Outstanding Player honor.  Scherry and Widder also had two hits each for UE, which improves to 38-24 overall with the victory and advances on to the Super Regional round to face national No. 1 seed, Tennessee.

Fougerousse earned Regional Tournament Most Outstanding Player honors, while Shallenberger, Scherry and freshman pitcher Kenton Deverman were all named to the Greenville (N.C.) All-Regional Tournament team.

The NCAA will announce the dates and start times for the Super Regional match-up between Evansville and Tennessee on Tuesday morning via social media.  UE and Tennessee have never met in the sport of baseball before.

* Baseball Aces Advance To Regional Final With 17-11 Win Over VCU

The University of Evansville baseball team exploded for 17 runs on Saturday, powered by four home runs, as the Purple Aces advanced to the Regional Final of the 2024 Greenville (N.C.) Regional with a 17-11 victory over third-seeded VCU at Clark-LeClair Stadium in Greenville, North Carolina.

“Another great performance tonight by our ballclub,” said UE head coach Wes Carroll.  “I thought that up and down our lineup, our guys were locked in tonight from the start, and Donovan Schultz did a great job of shutting VCU down early and giving everything that he had tonight on the mound for us.

“We have now put ourselves into a very special position, but the job is not done yet.  We need to come to the park tomorrow with the same kind of mentality offensively, and we need to be ready for a battle, no matter who we face.”

Evansville jumped out early with three runs in the second inning on back-to-back RBI singles by senior shortstop Simon Scherry and graduate outfielder Mark Shallenberger, and a sacrifice fly by senior designated hitter Kip Fougerousse.  The Purple Aces then tacked on three more runs two innings later on a run-scoring wild pitch and a laser two-run home run by graduate first baseman Chase Hug to take a 6-0 lead.

Evansville then exploded for seven runs in the fifth inning to grab a 13-0 lead, highlighted by a grand slam by graduate third baseman Brent Widder and a towering two-run home run by junior second baseman Cal McGinnis.  After VCU used a pair of home runs to trim the deficit to 13-3 in the bottom of the fifth inning, UE immediately responded with two more runs in the sixth inning on an RBI single by Shallenberger and a run-scoring double-play ground ball to take a 15-3 lead.

VCU would not go away, scoring two runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and five more in the seventh to cut UE’s lead to 15-10.  Fougerousse would stop the bleeding for UE with a long two-run home run to center field in the top of the eighth inning to give UE a 17-10 cushion.  VCU would score a run in the ninth inning, but would get no closer, as UE advanced to the Regional Final for the second time in school history (2006).

Shallenberger went 4-for-5 with a double and two runs scored to help lead a 16-hit UE attack.  Scherry and Fougerousse both had three-hit performances for UE as well, while McGinnis went 2-for-5.

Graduate left-hander Donovan Schultz (6-2) earned the victory by scattering five runs on seven hits in 6.0 innings of work, striking out five in a career-best 114 pitches.

Evansville will now await the winner of tomorrow’s elimination game between top-seeded and host East Carolina and VCU, which is set for 11 a.m. central time on Sunday.  The Purple Aces will face the winner of that game on Sunday night at 5 p.m. central time in the Regional Final round.  Sunday’s UE game can be heard live in the Tri-State area on 107.1 FM-WJPS and seen live on ESPN+.

* Baseball Aces Knock Off #16 East Carolina, 4-1

University of Evansville freshman starter Kenton Deverman tossed eight strong innings on Friday, and the Purple Aces used timely hitting to knock off the host and #16 national seed East Carolina, 4-1, in the first game of the Greenville (N.C.) Regional at Clark-LeClair Stadium in Greenville, North Carolina.

“What an incredible game for our program, for our fans, for our alumni, and for our University watching back home,” said UE head coach Wes Carroll.  “I knew that we were an older club, I knew that we have a lot of talent and I felt like we would be able handle that environment.  But, for a freshman (like Kenton Deverman) to go out and do it, I think that it was one of the most incredible performances that I have ever seen by a Purple Ace.

“Kenton was incredible on the mound for us today!  We also had some seniors step up in some very big moments for us offensively, and defensively, we got a couple of great plays from Mark Shallenberger and Ty Rumsey in the outfield.  Overall, I was really proud of the effort that our guys gave today.”

Deverman (9-1) was magnificent, limiting East Carolina to just a single run on three hits in 8.0 innings of work.  Deverman’s lone blemish was a solo home run in the fourth inning by American Athletic Conference Player of the Year Carter Cunningham, but aside from that, he allowed just two singles, and did not allow another runner to advance past second base in his eight innings of work.

Evansville gave Deverman the lead for good in the second inning, thanks to a walk from graduate first baseman Chase Hug, a single by graduate third baseman Brent Widder and a sacrifice fly by graduate catcher Brendan Hord.  Senior designated hitter Kip Fougerousse then gave UE a 2-0 lead in the third inning with a solo home run to left-center field for his team-leading 18th home run of the year.  Fougerousse has now homered in five of UE’s last six games overall.

Cunningham would answer with a solo blast of his own into a stiff breeze blowing in from right field in the fourth inning to cut the UE lead to 2-1.  The score would remain 2-1 until the ninth inning, when Evansville would rally for two insurance runs.  After a walk by Fougerousse and a single by Hug along with an ECU error, Widder drilled a two-run single to center field off of ECU closer Danny Beal to give UE a 4-1 lead.  In the bottom of the ninth inning, senior reliever Shane Harris worked around back-to-back one-out singles to post a scoreless frame, capped by a strikeout to clinch UE’s 4-1 victory.

Widder went 2-for-3 with two RBI, while Fougerousse and Hug both had hits and scored a pair of runs each.  Overall, Evansville out-hit East Carolina, 6-5, in a well-played game in front of 5,628 fans at Clark LeClair Stadium.

With the victory, Evansville advances on to the winner’s bracket contest against the winner of tonight’s game between #2 Wake Forest and #3 VCU.  That game will take place on Saturday night at 5 p.m. central time and can be heard live in the Tri-State area on 107.1 FM-WJPS and seen live on ESPN+.  UE will bring a 36-23 overall record into Saturday’s game.

* UE Alum & Former Head Coach Wilcox Returns To Lead UE Swimming & Diving Program

Toby Wilcox, a long-time successful collegiate head coach, has been selected to lead the men’s and women’s swimming & diving program at the University of Evansville, Director of Athletics Dr. Ziggy Siegfried announced today.

Wilcox has earned eight conference “Coach of the Year” honors during his collegiate coaching career, which began at UE in the mid-1980s.  Wilcox served as UE’s assistant swim coach from 1986 through 1988, before leading the program from 1988 through 1997 and earning three Midwestern Collegiate Conference “Coach of the Year” honors.

“Toby Wilcox is an exceptional coach, and we are thrilled to welcome him back to the University of Evansville,” said Siegfried. “Coach Wilcox has achieved great success throughout his career by promoting academic excellence, providing an outstanding student-athlete experience, achieving competitive success, and engaging with the community and alumni. We are excited to see how his high-energy and transformative leadership will impact our student-athletes and much more.”

“I am extremely grateful to the administration of President Pietruszkiewicz and Athletics Director Ziggy Siegfried for the chance to come back and guide the Swim and Dive program,” said Wilcox.  “UE is home to me and I’m excited about working with this group of outstanding young men and women, Plus, seeing where this program can go to new heights. Go Aces!”

Wilcox returns to the University of Evansville after spending the past 13 years at Birmingham Southern College (BSC) where he started the swimming and diving program. Wilcox built the Birmingham Southern program into a perennial power in the Southern Athletic Association (SAA), earning 16 SAA team titles on the men’s and women’s sides. He has coached 121 individual SAA champions, 57 SAA relay champions, and helped direct 35 student-athletes to the NCAA Division III National Championships. During his tenure, Wilcox helped produce 13 SAA “Swimmers of the year,” seven SAA “Divers of the Year,” and 11 SAA “Newcomers of the Year.” Wilcox earned five SAA “Coach of the Year” honors during his tenure at Birmingham Southern.

Prior to BSC, Wilcox was entrenched in the swimming and diving community in Evansville. Wilcox was the head coach at the University of Evansville for nine seasons, from 1988-97, and was named the Midwestern Collegiate Conference (MCC) Coach of the Year three times. Wilcox coached 24 athletes to individual titles, and three MCC Swimmers of the year. Prior to his stint as head coach, Wilcox served as Evansville’s Assistant Swim Coach from 1986 to 1988, and was also head swim coach for the University of Evansville Aquatic Club from 1984 to 1993.

Wilcox knows what it is like to compete at UE, as he earned both MCC and Heartland Collegiate Conference MVP honors for the Purple Aces in 1984.  Wilcox was a two-time team MVP in 1983 and 1984, while also serving as a team captain for UE.  He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in History from UE in 1985.

A native of Rensselaer, Indiana, Wilcox and his wife Cathy, have two children: Cole and Reghan.
