SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel men's basketball team looks to snap a tough five-game skid Wednesday night at Heart South Division rival, MidAmerica Nazarene.


► Evangel heads to MidAmerica Nazarene Wednesday starting a two-game road swing. The Pioneers swept the Crusaders last season, as MNU was able to even the all-time series at 36-36.

Justin Washington (Springfield, Mo.) leads Evangel in scoring and rebounding at 16.4 ppg and 9.2 boards per game. The freshman ranks 15th nationally in rebounding and third in the Heart.

► The Crusaders have faced one of the toughest schedules in the nation. After Saturday's double overtime loss to Central Methodist Evangel has faced three ranked teams and one team receiving votes in its last five games.

► Of the 13 losses for Evangel this season, only four have been more than 10 points. In addition, in the 13 losses, six have been by four points or less and all nine of the single-digit losses have been by fewer than eight points.

Evangel heads north to Iowa to face another team receiving votes in the Coaches Top 25 at Grand View. Tipoff from Des Moines, Iowa, is scheduled for 4 p.m.
