    EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- Jason Holsinger and Shy Ely each scored 16 points to lead Evansville to a 76-65 win over Drake Sunday.

    Nate Gamer added 15 points and Kavon Lacey scored 14 for the Purple Aces (9-2).

    Josh Young racked up 24 points for the Bulldogs (9-4), while Josh Parker had 15 and Jonathan Cox had 12. But Drake made less than 35 percent of its field goals and made 7 of 26 attempted three pointers.

    Evansville made 50 percent of its field goals and was 3-5 in three pointers.

    Evansville's 9-2 record marks the team's best start in 14 years, when the team won nine of its first 11 games.
