SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel men's basketball team heads to Iowa looking to for its first road win Saturday at Grand View.


► Evangel closes a two-game road swing this week at another team receiving votes nationally, Grand View University. The Crusaders swept the season series with the Vikings last year and lead the all-time series 6-1.

Justin Washington (Springfield, Mo.) leads Evangel in scoring and rebounding at 16.3 ppg and 9.1 boards per game. The freshman ranks 15th nationally in rebounding and is third in the Heart.

► The Crusaders have faced one of the toughest schedules in the nation. After Saturday's double OT 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 returns home Jan. 17 to face Benedictine. Tipoff Wednesday is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
