Evansville Purple Aces

The Purple Aces are coming off their best two seasons in terms of wins in school history as they had 49 combined wins in the past two years. They won 25 games last season and 12 in the conference. They are not going to win that many this season as they lost D.J. Balentine who averaged more than 20 points per game last season. They also lost Egidijus Mockevicius who led the country in rebounding last season.

The Purple Aces should be fine in the backcourt as they have Duane Gibson and transfer Ryan Taylor from Ohio along with Blake Simmons. The problem is upfront as they simply don’t have much talent.

The Purple Aces only other newcomer other than Taylor is Jaiveon Eaves and he may be counted on to play right away.

Evansville Purple Aces Picks

The Purple Aces are going to fall hard in 2016-2017 as they don’t have anyone to pick up the lost scoring and rebounding. They will need Taylor to be really good right away just to be competitive. It looks like a losing season for Evansville in 2016-2017.
