Aces hoops helps out EVSC

Sports

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) Aces basketball was hard at work Tuesday afternoon at the 5/3 Center.

But it wasn’t a normal practice session.

The team spent the afternoon stuffing backpacks for EVSC students. Each backpack was filled with school supplies and a coupon for a free haircut.

Head coach Walter McCarty says, ” Growing up in this area and being able to do something like this is one of the reasons why coming back was a great thing to do.”

The Aces filled nearly 100 backpacks.
