Sports

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) On a night when USI opened up the home schedule in brand new Screaming Eagles Arena, it looked like Kentucky Wesleyan might crash the party.

KWC used a strong first half to lead USI 37-31 at halftime, but it was all USI in the second half. The Screaming Eagles used a 30-1 run to take control and cruise to an 82-63 lead.

Emmanuel Little led USI 22 points.

Adam Goetz led KWC with 27.

The win was Rodney Watson’s 232nd as USI head coach, making him the program’s all-time winningest head coach.
