Ryan sets scoring record at University of Evansville

BATESVILLE — University of Evansville senior Colt Ryan broke the all-time UE scoring record with a 39-point effort against Canisius as the Purple Aces advanced to the final four of the Tournament with an 84-83 victory on Tuesday evening at Koessler Athletic Center.

Entering the game with 2,228 points, Ryan hit 11 out of 22 shots while going 12-of-15 from the stripe en route to a season-high effort of 39 points. He eclipsed the record of 2,236, which was set by the great Larry Humes, who played for UE from 1963-66. With the win, the Aces won three in a row on the road for the first time since the 1998-99 season.

The Aces (21-14) overcame a 9-point halftime deficit as Ryan tallied 30 second-half points. Troy Taylor followed his career effort of 16 against EKU with 10 against the Golden Griffins.

"This is a very special accomplishment," Ryan said. "Mr. Humes set that mark in just three years of playing, so it is a credit to what he did in such a short time that makes this moment so special."

Coach Simmons followed that up with some comments of his own.

"He is a special guy, I have had the privilege of coaching him (Colt) for four years," head coach Marty Simmons said. "He has a great knowledge of the game that is as good as anyone I have been around."

Canisius got off to a quick 5-0 start as Isaac Sosa knocked down a trey after the Griffins hit the opening shot of the game. Ned Cox hit a pair of shots before Lewis Jones drained an 18-footer as the Aces got within a point at 13-12 with 11:38 remaining in the opening frame.

The Golden Griffins overcame that stretch to go on a 12-2 run of their own as Alshwan Hymes hit a pair of treys to give Canisius a 25-14 lead five minutes later as they connected on five out of eight shots in the stretch while UE made just one out of 12 attempts over that stretch.
