SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel men's basketball team returns to the Ashcroft Center Wednesday night against Benedictine in conference action.

OPENING STORYLINES

► Evangel returns home to face Benedictine after picking up its first road win of the season on Saturday at Grand View. The Crusaders lead the all-time series 39-23 as the Ravens swept the season series last year.

Justin Washington (Springfield, Mo.) led Evangel in scoring for the seventh time this season with 22 points in the win over Grand View. Washington is also averaging 9.1 boards per game ranking 10th nationally and third in the Heart.

► The Crusaders have faced one of the toughest schedules in the nation. After Saturday's last-second win at Grand View, Evangel has faced three ranked teams and two teams receiving votes in its last seven games.

► Of the 14 losses for Evangel this season, only five have been more than 10 points. In addition, in the 14 losses, six have been by four points or less and all nine of the single-digit losses have been by fewer than eight points.

LOOKING AHEAD
Evangel continues road action Saturday at Peru State. Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.
