Valparaiso junior guard Brandon Wood (Kokomo, Ind./Kokomo [Highland C.C./Southern Illinois]) represented the Crusaders on the Horizon League All-Tournament Team after averaging 24.7 points per game on Valpo's run to the league semifinals.

Wood kicked off the tournament with his first career double-double, posting 20 points and 13 rebounds, as well as five assists, in the Crusaders' first-round victory over Youngstown State.  He then posted his fifth career 30+ point effort, hitting seven second-half 3-pointers en route to 30 points in Valpo's quarterfinal win over Detroit.  Wood concluded the tournament with a 24-point game against host Milwaukee in the semifinals, 16 of which came in the final 20 minutes.

Wood was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Butler's Matt Howard (MVP), Shelvin Mack and Shawn Vanzant and Milwaukee's Anthony Hill.
