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.
