Ryan and Aces advance to second round

BATESVILLE — The University of Evansville Athletics Department has announced the Purple Aces’ matchup for the second round of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament as UE will play host to Eastern Kentucky on Saturday at the Physical Activities Center on the campus of USI.

The venue change for the game is due to the Icemen playing at the Ford Center this weekend.

Tip will be at 12:30 p.m. with all seats costing $15.  All tickets are general admission.  Fans are encouraged to buy tickets early as a capacity crowd is expected.

Evansville improved to 19-14 with an 84-72 victory over Tennessee State in Tuesday’s opening-round matchup at the Ford Center while the Colonels enter the weekend with a 25-9 mark after topping Gardner-Webb by a 69-62 final in their first CIT game.

Colt Ryan scored 22 points in the CIT opener as he moved within 33 points of tying Larry Humes’ all-time scoring record. Ryan went 6-of-13 from the floor for Evansville (19-14, 10-8 MVC) while hitting nine out of ten from the charity stripe.
