The Boubacar 3/3/2008 (Big Red Edition)--The Mid-Majority

Or How 'Bout™ Valparaiso? The Crusaders lost six of seven during a February stretch, but have finished strong. Starting with that crazy double-OT BracketBuster win over Miami (Oh.), Valpo quickly cobbled together a four-game win streak, winning three Horizon games in six days -- on Saturday, they topped Wright State in OT (on ESPN2!) 75-73. Freshman Michael Rogers provided the tired Crusaders fresh legs with career highs in minutes (38) and points (21). Now they'll enter the HL tourney as a No. 6 seed, and have already busted the bracket: Wright will be a three-seed, clearing the way for Cleveland State to steal the two.

For a change, neither of the VU newspaper blogs was actually about Valpo.

Instead, both basically ripping
the other voters for putting
Graves on the first team, all-Horizon.

I suppose I don't know where else you would have classified their posts. Butler? ;) "Horizon League" seems to be reserved for announcements from the league.

Good question, Adam. I sometimes struggle with that. I guess my current thinking is that since they were written from a Valpo context, I put it in the Valpo section. However, in the past I have been known to drop such articles down to the League category.

Food for thought, though...
