Evansville Aces vs Valparaiso Crusaders 1/26/2020
Evansville Aces have been struggling to find what works for them as in their last game, it got even worse as they lost by 17 points against the Drake Bulldogs at home. No player from the Aces roster was able to reach double-digit scoring for this match. This team did not have Williams in the team and KJ Riley only attempted three shots in 31 minutes. Sam Cunliffe only registered 18 minutes and he shot a poor 2-of-8 from the field. The entire team shot only 30% and they need to improve on their shot selection if they want to have a chance against the Crusaders.

After a win over the Indiana State Sycamores, the Crusaders failed to capitalize on the momentum as they lost by seven points against the Missouri State Bears, 60-67. Mileek McMillan led the team in scoring with 12 points to go along with five rebounds while Daniel Sackley and Javon Freeman-Liberty had 11 points. This was an awful night from the field shooting 4-of-18 from the field. Eron Gordon had it worse doing only 11% and finishing with a lowly 5 points. Still, with Freeman-Liberty on the floor, expect him to have a better game in their home court and Gordon will also perform in front of their own crowd.
