Squad status amid a coach change

EVANVILLE, Indiana — It’s mid-May and the merry-go-round of national college basketball coaches has all but stopped while the NCAA transfer portal is closed. This should be a quiet time of year.

Except for the University of Evansville.

Coach Todd Lickliter and the entire team were unexpectedly sacked on May 5, leaving the EU and South Carolina as the only vacancies. The timing is strange because the previous team has already signed at least four players. It is also unknown if anyone else will seek an NCAA exemption to transfer after five others have left since March.

Meanwhile, the EU and search firm TurnkeyZRG have begun interviewing candidates to take on the Purple Aces. Maybe that announcement will come later this week. Little information about the survey was otherwise leaked.
