Aces name Max Ethridge as Director of Basketball Operations

Adding to its coaching staff, the University of Evansville women’s basketball team has named Max Ethridge its Director of Operations.

“Max is such a great addition to our staff! Having spent many years in the NAIA myself, I know Max’s experience at UNOH has prepared him well for this role on our staff,” said Evansville head women’s basketball coach Robyn Scherr-Wells. “As an NAIA assistant, you are involved with every aspect of a basketball program and you have to have a great combination of being basketball smart and organized from an operations standpoint. I know Max will not only help our program run smoothly, but he has a sharp basketball mind as well and will provide our staff with great support from a basketball standpoint. He is a hard worker and I am thrilled that he has chosen to be a part of UE Women’s Basketball.”

“I am thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to join Coach Scherr-Wells and the rest of the coaching staff,” said Ethridge. “I am looking forward to building relationships with our coaching staff, student-athletes, athletic department, and community. Coach Scherr-Wells brings a winning mindset to Evansville, both on and off the court, and I am humbled to be a part of it.”
During his time in Lima, Ethridge was responsible for coaching the guards and wings, helping Tori Lennartz and Jada Haines capture first-team all-WHAC honors and Lennartz receive NAIA Honorable Mention All-American recognition.
In 2019-20, Ethridge helped guide the Racers to their best win percentage in four seasons, amassing as UNOH set a program record for the most threes in a season and captured a win over 14th-ranked Siena Heights to mark the highest-ranked win in program history.
