UE celebrates upset win with ‘Do-nut Underestimate the Aces’

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The University of Evansville Purple Aces continued their victory celebration into Wednesday.

Students received a free donut from UE President Doctor Pietruszkiewicz. The event was appropriately named “Do-nut Underestimate the Aces.”

Dozens of students came out to celebrate.

Evansville Athletic Director Mark Spencer says Tuesday’s win really put UE on the map.

“It just fills you with so much pride," explains Spencer. "This is why you play the game. This is bigger than just the two teams that played. This really helps people around the country know what the University of Evansville is.”

Chick-Fil-A is also getting in on the celebration too. You have until 8 p.m. Wednesday to get a free classic chicken sandwich or eight-piece nugget at the Cross Pointe location.

All you have to do is mention the Aces big win.
