EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Marcus Wilson hasn’t set his alarm since June 1. He hasn’t needed to.

He wakes up every morning at 5:30 or 6 am, excited to get into work. Wilson knew he had the job as new University of Evansville men’s basketball Coach David Ragland’s first assistant June 1 and was publicly announced two days later.

Since then, he hasn’t needed any extra motivation to get up and go to work. They just do it.

“I’m locked in,” Wilson said. “I’m serious about this.”
