Valparaiso Athletics celebrated Championship Night at the ARC last Friday evening, as it honored its four Horizon League Championship squads from last season. Prior to tip-off of the men's basketball game versus Murray State, three banners were unveiled and raised to the roof of the Athletics-Recreation Center: the Horizon League regular season Championship, the Horizon League Tournament Championship, and the NCAA Tournament participant banners.

After the much-anticipated season opener got underway, director of athletics Mark LaBarbera distributed commemorative rings to the baseball, softball, and men's golf teams during a halftime ceremony.

The Crusaders topped off the night in fine fashion, defeating Murray State 77-74 in front of over 4,200 fans.
