The ESPN cameras won't be on hand, but the Valparaiso men's basketball team will be hosting another Ohio school in the annual ESPNU BracketBuster event.

A year after beating Miami (Ohio) 99-94 in double overtime on national television, the Crusaders will host Akron at the Athletics-Recreation Center on Feb. 21.

The Zips (13-8) have won four of their last five games, including a 67-53 contest against Horizon League opponent Youngstown State.

"They are a very good, very solid team that will be a tremendous challenge for us," Valparaiso coach Homer Drew said.

As part of the BracketBuster agreement, the Crusaders will schedule a return trip to Akron next season. Valparaiso is 2-2 in BracketBuster games. -- Paul Oren

Wisconsin-Green Bay 75, Butler 66. Upset of the Night as UWGB pulled a half-game back of previously unbeaten Butler behind Ryan Tillema’s 21/6. Maybe our bracketologist knew what he was talking about after all: "Butler at Green Bay, 2/2- If Green Bay wants any chance to catch Butler in the Horizon and make it a possible 2-bid league, they must win this game."
