Evansville All Hail to Thee; True and Loyal We Will Be

My Evansville Purple Aces Saturday night topped the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers 72–40. This is a Western team that a couple weeks ago had handily defeated then #3 Louisville. My Aces are now 7–1—the team's best start since 1981—with two victories over teams that were in last year's NCAA Tournament (and two victories over non-Division I opponents, but I can overlook that). Our only loss was on the road against a very good Butler team. I'm looking at making some travel plans in March.

You can watch my Aces hand #1 North Carolina its first loss Thursday on ESPN.

Update: Andy Katz lifts up Evansville in this week's Weekly Watch.

I'm just glad my Hoosiers don't play the Aces this year.

Enjoy the ride while you can.
