EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - UE's huge win over Butler at Hinkle Fieldhouse Saturday should give them plenty of confidence heading into the rest of the year.

Evansville finishes up a four-game stretch contests away from Roberts Stadium when they travel to Colorado Springs to take on Air Force Sunday.

The Aces then return home for four consecutive games beginning with North Carolina on December 8. 

Players and coaches say they know the schedule won't get any easier once they begin Missouri Valley Conference play but Saturday's win over last year's national runner-up, showed them exactly what they're capable of.

In other Aces news, Colt Ryan has been named MVC Player of the Week following his 31-point performance, at Middle Tennessee.

    When Adam Schenk stepped over his birdie putt on the first playoff hole at the Lincoln Land Charity Championship, he heard the sound of bullfrogs in the background. About three hours after the victory, it was finally coming to him as to why he felt such a sense of calm, and had a sneaky suspicion that he was going to make that 30-footer for the win.
