#RV Green Bay (22-3, 12-1 Horizon)
at Valparaiso (8-17, 4-10 Horizon)

Game #26 - Saturday, February 20 - 1:30 p.m. CT
Athletics-Recreation Center (5,000) - Valparaiso, Ind.

Next Up in Crusader Basketball: Abby Dean, Lexi Miller, and Jessi Wiedemann will take to Homer Drew Court for the final time in their Crusader careers Saturday afternoon. The Horizon League-leading Green Bay Phoenix visit the ARC for Senior Day in a 1:30 pm jump ball. A Valpo victory would snap a 20-game slide to the Phoenix.

Last Time Out: Jasmyn Walker and Imani Scott-Thompson combined for 31 points Thursday night, but a mammoth game from Steph Kostowicz vaulted Milwaukee to a 70-60 win at the Athletics-Recreation Center. Kostowicz scored 27 points and 12 rebounds to offset 18 points and nine boards from Walker and a trio of threes from Scott-Thompson. The Crusaders received 19 points from their bench, but the Panthers parlayed 19 Valpo turnovers into 23 points for the season sweep.

Head Coach Tracey Dorow: Tracey Dorow (31-85) is in her fourth season at the helm of the Valparaiso women’s basketball program in 2015-16. She collected her 250th career victory on November 14th, 2014 after a 91-57 defeat of Butler. In her first season, Dorow led the Crusaders to eleven victories overall, including five in Horizon League play. Dorow arrived in Valparaiso after 14 seasons at Ferris State.
