Last updated on Wednesday, November 24, 2010

(MURFREESBORO, TN) - The Evansville Purple Aces are on the road tonight as they travel to Middle Tennessee.

The Aces are 2-1 and are coming off their first loss of the season last Sunday when they fell to Indiana 67-54 in Bloomington.

The Blue Raiders are 2-3 and are coming off a two-point loss at Auburn.

It is the first meeting between the two schools in men's basketball.

The teams were scheduled to play at Murfreesboro in December of 1977, but the airplane carrying the Evansville team crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all on board.
