Akron and Duquesne, both postseason teams from a season ago, highlight the squads coming to Valparaiso as the Crusaders’ men’s basketball team hosts a subregional round of the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Coaches vs. Cancer at the Athletics-Recreation Center on Nov. 18-20.  It marks the first time Valpo has hosted part of an in-season men’s basketball tournament since 1977.

The Valparaiso Subregional begins at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 18 as Duquesne faces University of the District of Columbia.  Later that night at 7:30 p.m., the Crusaders take on Akron, which won 23 games last season and appeared in the NCAA Tournament.

Valparaiso opens the 2K Sports Classic with a previously announced game at Arizona in the Tucson Regional.  The Crusaders will take on the Wildcats on Monday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. CT in a game that can be seen live nationwide on ESPNU.
