SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Evangel Crusaders will attempt to halt a three-game slide Wednesday (Jan. 13) evening when they host the Benedictine Ravens for a 7:30 p.m., Heart of America Athletic Conference matchup at the Ashcroft Center.

Evangel leads the overall series with Benedictine by a 35-30 margin after claiming an 84-78 road win over the Ravens on Dec. 5 in Atchison. The Crusaders have not swept BC in a season series since 2012-13.

► Now in his 39th season at the helm of the Crusaders, head coach Steve Jenkins enters Wednesday's game with an overall coaching record of 688-536 (.562), which not only represents an Evangel record for any sport, but also ranks fourth among all active NAIA head men's coaches.

► Junior All-American Cade Coffman became the 36th Crusader to join the 1,000-point club with his 19-point effort vs. Clarke (Dec. 15); with 1,032 career points, Coffman ranks 33rd on EU's all-time scoring list, nine points behind Dylan Bekemeier in the No. 32 position on the chart.

► Coffman also ranks 21st on EU's all-time 3-point field goals chart with 113, just one behind Maury Leitzke in the No. 20 spot on the list.

► After starting the season with four-straight home wins, Evangel has dropped its last two home games; EU is 4-2 at home this year, averaging 74.0 points per outing at the Ashcroft Center.

► EU ranks 10th nationally in total blocks (57), led by Pavel Antonov's 18 rejections; Antonov ranks 19th nationally, as well as fifth all-time at Evangel in career blocks (66), tied with fellow Crusader Ike Egwu.

► All Evangel home games in 2020-21 will be streamed live on the Evangel Sports Network in conjunction with the Heart Network; fans can download the Heart Conference Network App for AppleTVAmazon, or Roku and watch Evangel games on their smart TV or streaming devices.
