The 2 p.m. exhibition game will benefit the fight against Friedreich's Ataxia (FA), a degenerative neuro-muscular disorder that affects one in 50,000 people in the United States. Most individuals have onset of symptoms of FA between the ages of 5 and 18 years, but can occur anytime during adulthood. The Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance is supporting research that will improve the quality and length of life for those diagnosed with FA and will lead to treatments that eliminate its symptoms.
The game will preview the 2024 USI Screaming Eagles, who were 17-38 mark in 2023. USI is in the second year of transitioning to the NCAA Division I after dominating Division II for 16 years with two national championships and five NCAA II Midwest Regional titles under Archuleta. Archuleta is in his 18th season at the helm and has a 544-351 (.608) and directed the Eagles to both of their national championships.
UE, who is under the direction of 16-year Head Coach Wes Carroll, was 37-24 last spring before ending the season in the finals of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament.
