EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – D.J. Balentine scored 23 points and had seven assists in Evansville’s final home game as the Aces beat Drake 61-48 on Tuesday.  Blake Simmons added 13 points for Evansville (12-18, 5-12 Missouri Valley Conference) and Egidiju Mockevicius was held scoreless, but grabbed 10 rebounds. Balentine made four 3-pointers as Evansville hit 6 of 12 from deep. Evansville ended a three-game losing streak and pulled itself out of the conference cellar.

Ten players scored for Drake (14-15, 5-12) but none were in double-figures. Daddy Ugbede had seven, on 3-of-8 shooting, and Jordan Daniels made two of Drake’s four 3-pointers, in a combined 16 attempts. The Bulldogs made just 6 of 20 second-half baskets and were limited to 18 points after the break.

Evansville held the Bulldogs without a basket for nearly 11 minutes, spanning both halves, and led by double-digits for the final 10 minutes.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hall of Fame quarterback and broadcaster Len Dawson will be honored with the Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football at the 101 Awards gala on Saturday. The award was created in 2007 to honor the life and legacy of the Chiefs founder. It goes to an individual or group that has played a role in shaping the NFL.

Dawson led the Chiefs to its only Super Bowl championship and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1987. He began broadcasting Chiefs games in 1985, and in 2012 was awarded the hall’s Pete Rozelle Award for radio and television contributions.

Previous winners include The Foolish Club, the name taken on by the eight original AFL owners; coaches Tony Dungy and Don Shula; quarterback Roger Staubach; and Monday Night Football.

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Jaime Garcia will seek a second opinion on his surgically repaired shoulder from Dr. James Andrews before deciding his next course of action, St. Louis General Manager John Mozeliak said on Tuesday. Garcia requested the second opinion even before consulting with Cardinals team doctors.

Mozeliak didn’t go into detail about the findings of Garcia’s Monday exam, other to say that the initial results were encouraging. “Based on the MRI and overall, we feel good,” Mozeliak said. “I would like to see what the other doctor has to say and we will go from there.”

UNI hosts Southern Illinois tonight

The UNI basketball team will close out the home portion of their schedule tonight with a match-up against Southern Illinois. The Panthers are currently in a four-way tie for third place in the Missouri Valley standings, and UNI coach Ben Jacobson says they need to try to keep pace against an improving Saluki team.

UNI dropped a two-point decision in their first game against Southern Illinois nearly six weeks ago. Jacobson says that in the time between their meetings, the Salukis have had a young big man step up into a much larger role. Jacobson says that Southern will present some challenges for the Panther defense.

Tonight’s game at the McLeod Center tips off at 7:00.
