Regular season opens Monday for women’s basketball


EVANSVILLE – Following a win in its lone preseason exhibition last Saturday, the University of Evansville women’s basketball team begins the 2022-23 regular season against Eastern Kentucky on Monday evening at 4 PM (CT) in Richmond, Ky.

Evansville and Eastern Kentucky open the 2022-23 season with their fifth meeting in series history with the all-time series tied at two wins each. The Aces and Colonels met last season inside the Ford Center in Evansville as the Aces earned a 67-57 win on Nov. 17, 2022. The Aces opened the 2022-23 campaign last Saturday in the team’s lone exhibition against Roosevelt, capturing a 101-57 win over the Lakers. Six Aces finished in double-figures, led by seniors Abby Feit with 15 points and nine boards and A’Niah Griffin with 15 points and six rebounds.

The Aces opener at EKU starts a string of road games to open the regular season for UE. In its first seven games, Evansville will play five on the road, beginning with EKU on Monday and a trip to No. 4 Iowa on Thursday night in Iowa City.

Evansville returns more than 75% of this scoring from last year, including all-MVC first-team and all-MVC preseason team selection Abby Feit, who led the team in points, rebounds, and minutes per game, three pointers made, steals, and blocks. Joining Feit are returning starters Myia Clark, Anna Newman, and Celine DuPont, while key members Jossie Hudson, A’Niah Griffin, Elly Morgan, and Kodie Myszka also are back for the 2022-23 season.
