Sports

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) It was all about Aces hoops Tuesday at the annual YMCA UE Coaches Luncheon.

The event, now in it’s 27th year, featured Matt Ruffing and Walter McCarty.

Both head coaches discussed the upcoming season with Eyewitness News Sports Director Randall Parmley in front of a large crowd of Aces fans.

McCarty says, “It’s really a lot of fun to come out and give back. The YMCA and their programs are phenomenal. I remember when I was a kid, we sat at the table, and was just thinking about being in this gym. Myself, Calbert Cheaney, Chris Lowrey, these rims have really stood the test of time and it’s fun to come back in here in this gym. They are doing great things and hopefully the kids they effect now will have the same memories that I have once they move on.
