Aces Full-court Press: Head Coach Marty Simmons

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - January has brought eight straight setbacks for the UE Aces basketball team.

And while it's not the longest skid in the Marty Simmons' era at Evansville, it's long enough to all-but derail any hopes of avoiding the dreaded Missouri Valley Conference play-in game.

The most confounding part of this struggle has been, that for parts of each of those losses, the Aces have looked like the best team in the MVC, and it's what gives Simmons hope that the team is close to a turnaround.
