    About Evansville Purple Aces Basketball

    The Evansville Purple Aces basketball team has been a part of the university’s sports culture for over a century. Founded in 1905, the team plays its official home games on campus at the Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana. Since its inception, the program has experienced tremendous success both on and off the court. Evansville Purple Aces has played against some of the biggest teams in college basketball including rivals such as Indiana State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and Valparaiso University. These long-standing rivalries have provided many memorable moments throughout the years and continue to bring out the best in each school whenever they meet on the hardwood. The Purple Aces has had several successful head coaches with current head coach Todd Lickliter leading them to two NCAA Tournament appearances and an NIT Final Four appearance during his tenure since taking over in 2007. Before that was Marty Simmons who held a record of 156-140 (.529) during his eight seasons with the Purple Aces from 2000 to 2008 and brought the team their first NCAA tournament berth in 22 years.
