Valparaiso upsets Green Bay 75-60
VALPARAISO 75, WISC GREEN BAY 60
VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) -- LaVonte Dority scored 26 points as
Valparaiso handed Green Bay, playing without 7-foot-1 center
Alec Brown, its first Horizon League defeat of the season,
75-60, on Wednesday night.
The Phoenix had a 12-game winning streak snapped.
Brown, a senior who is the Phoenix's second-leading scorer and
rebounder, missed the game with an injured left shoulder. It was
a tough night all the way around for Green Bay (17-4, 7-1) with
coach Brian Wardle injured after falling on the ice getting off
the bus, though he didn't miss the game.
Without Brown, the Crusaders outscored the Phoenix by 10 points
in the paint and had a 38-28 rebounding average. Valparaiso
(13-10, 5-3) had the lead from the early moments with its
largest lead of 26 coming at the 14:05 mark of the second half.
Jubril Adekoya added 12 points for the Crusaders.
Keifer Sykes led Green Bay with 19 points
