Posted: Jan 5, 2021 10:15 PM

UE's Samari Curtis was named the MVC newcomer of the week.

The aces sophomore dropped 7 points in the MVC opener against SIU and in the Aces' very next contest against those same Salukies, Curtis erupted for a career high 29 points in the win. The guard then averaged 11.5 points and 5 boards this past weekend as UE took back to back games from Northern Iowa.

Curtis and the aces will be back in action Saturday against Illinois State.

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.
