Valparaiso looks to enter the Christmas break on a high note, as the Crusaders play games on back-to-back days this weekend. Valpo will travel to IPFW for a Saturday night contest before returning to the ARC Sunday afternoon to take on Goshen.
World-famous national anthem singer Jim Cornelison returns to the ARC for the second straight year, as he will sing The Star-Spangled Banner prior to the Crusaders’ men’s basketball game against UIC on Thursday, January 8.
Valparaiso rallied from a 12-point first-half deficit and withstood a late Ball State comeback effort in a 65-62 win over their in-state foe at the ARC Saturday night. Alec Peters finished with his second career double-double as the Crusaders hit the ten-win mark - one of a handful of teams in the nation with double figures in the win column.
