* American Mathematical Society Appoints Professor Azarian as the Chair of the Human Rights of Mathematicians Committee

University of Evansville Professor of Mathematics, Mohammad K. Azarian, has been appointed by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) as the chair of the Human Rights of Mathematicians Committee. The AMS is committed to speaking whenever mathematicians (anywhere in the world) are deprived of the opportunity to practice their profession due to violations of the freedoms enumerated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Affirmation adopted by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. This Committee will assist the Society in such matters by reviewing alleged violations of human rights of mathematicians and by recommending appropriate action to the AMS. Because of the global political instability at this time, the committee expect to receive a flood of cases from around the world this year. Dr. Azarian is grateful and honored to be asked by one of the world’s most respected scientific organization to lead this global humanitarian effort.

* Aces aim to break attendance record against Murray State on Friday nightht

Continuing to build momentum both on the court and in the stands, the University of Evansville women's basketball team plays host to Murray State at 6 PM on Friday evening inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse in Evansville.

Friday night's game shapes up to be one of the highest attended in Meeks Family Fieldhouse history. The women's basketball record inside Meeks is 712 and the Aces are looking to Max Out Meeks the first 100 students inside the fieldhouse receiving Aces crossbody bags and free hot dogs.

The meeting between Evansville and Murray State on Friday marks the 38th all-time contest between the two, but the first as conference foes. The Racers own a 23-14 advantage in the all-time series and have won four-straight in the series, including a narrow 85-77 win a season ago inside Meeks Family Fieldhouse in non-conference action. In fact, all three contests between the two inside Meeks have been close with Murray State narrowly edging the Aces, 227-225, over the last three contests in Evansville.

Murray State comes into Friday's contest with an 11-6 overall record and a 4-4 mark in Valley play, sitting in a tie for sixth in the MVC standings, just one game up on Evansville. The Racers are led by the MVC's top scorer in junior forward Katelyn Young, who's averaging over 20 points per game and adding nearly eight boards per contest.

The Aces enter the weekend with plenty of momentum following last Friday's road win over Bradley. In Peoria, the Aces earned an 73-56 win over Bradley in a road MVC matchup. Evansville's 17-point margin in the win over Bradley is its largest against an MVC foe since an 81-50 victory at Loyola Chicago on March 2, 2017. With the win over the Braves, the Aces earned their third MVC win of the season, the most since 2016-17 for the program.
