University of Evansville Director of Athletics Mark Spencer on Tuesday announced Robyn Scherr-Wells as the University's 11th head women's basketball coach.

Scherr-Wells has head coaching experience, coaching for seven seasons in the NAIA with Roosevelt University and Davenport University, winning six conference championships, and helping rebuild programs at Florida International University and Davidson College as an assistant coach at the NCAA Division I level.

She comes to Evansville after spending the 2020-21 season as assistant coach at Florida International University, where she was part of a staff that helped lead the Panthers to their best record in nearly a decade.

"We're excited to welcome Coach Scherr-Wells to the University of Evansville," said Evansville President Christopher M. Pietruszkiewicz. "She will make a great addition to the campus family and will help develop student-athletes who excel in the classroom and community, as well as on the court.”

“We took this opportunity to do a national search and select a candidate that will lead us to the future,” said Director of Athletics Spencer. “We believe Robyn is the perfect fit for UE and the program moving forward.”

At 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, Scherr-Wells will be introduced as the Purple Aces head coach during a press conference inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse.

44News Sports Director Joe Downs will be live at that confernce.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
