Re: Bellarmine to announce DI move

My thoughts are that USI wants to be the cream of the crop in DII for the forseeable future. They can sit back and watch the others who have moved to D1 and learn from their mistakes or simply sit back and laugh and watch them spend all that money to go where and do what? Bellarmine is paying a big ...

Re: 2019 Non Conference Schedule

Before we get too excited about that Saturday night game we've been clamoring for because of its attendance "boosting" possibilities, that Saturday night game in 2014 against IUPUI only drew 3889 fans (300+ below the season home game average) in a year that the Aces had high expectations ...

Re: 2020 PF 6-9 WVA Obinna Anochili-Killen

Great post by Purplewhiskers. You brought up two points I've been thinking about. First, no transfers. As has been stated, a couple of trips to exciting locales helps to keep that from happening, but if players weren't behind Walter, what is going on in the program, then someone would have left. Al...

Re: 2020 PF 6-9 WVA Obinna Anochili-Killen

With one scholarship for next year, this would be my pick . A local boy would be great but I think this young mans skill level is better from all the video I’ve tracked down on both. IMHO Either of them would be great..I think in this case it would be a matter of who would say YES first. I would ha...

Re: MVC coaching staff change

Belcher was with Indiana State for 8 seasons. He did work as an assistant to Marty both here and at Edwardsville. He left Evansville to work with his old coach Chris Lowery at SIU. That position opened up when Rodney Watson came to USI, and ended when Lowery was fired. It is old fashioned to assume...

Re: 2019 F Michael Moreno

This is what I think happened. Walt gave our last available scholarship to the first recruit that said yes,and his name was not Moreno. :? :? I tend do agree. Walt and staff liked them both, offered them both and said we have 1 spot for 2 guys and first one that commits gets it. May have even been ...

Re: MVC coaching staff change

I believe he was on our staff was he not during the Simmons era for maybe 1 or 2 years? I could be wrong, but seems like he was. Someone that goes to at least three different schools in a short time makes me think "red flag" just as an employee moves from job to job to job over a short per...

Re: Breaking!!! Lance Wilkerson fired!

Lance was and is a great person ! This is a horrible decision. If you have an employee you like and who does a good job, you "find a way" to keep them and get rid of the weak ones on and find a way to make end's meet. Lance was the face of the Aces. I guess they figure with Walt he is the ...

Re: 2019 F Michael Moreno

Michael tweeted that his final 3 are Eastern Kentucky, Wofford, and your University of Evansville Aces! If he really thinks he has some game UE would be the place. However if he feels he will play more and be more successful in a weaker conference then he will go to one of the others. My gut tells ...

Re: 2019 PG Thomasi Gilgeous Alexander

This is great news. I looked through the thread and maybe I missed it, but I did not see any video footage of him in action. Is it on another thread?
