News On The Horizon 1/14/2013

ATB: Duke Goes Down, Texas A&M Fells Kentuck At Rupp, and a Shake-Up Atop The Big Ten…--Rush The Court
… and Misses.
The Horizon League is A Mess. The nonconference season coaxed mid-major hoops enthusiasts and Horizon league fans into thinking UIC could make a run at the league title. Detroit looked pretty good too, nearly knocking off Syracuse at the Carrier Dome. The Flames have fallen off the map – their latest loss coming Saturday at Green Bay – and Detroit, while operating on higher ground at 3-1, took a bad loss at Cleveland State. And those are two of the league’s “best” teams. Ugh. Valparaiso looks like a comfortable favorite, but the Crusaders lost to Loyola (IL) at home two weeks ago. Which tells me that the Horizon League is a disorderly jumble of mediocre teams, with no clear leader to carry the league’s flagship. I’ll wait to pass judgment on this mystifying conference until conference play produces a bigger and more enlightening set of results.
Second Team
Ryan Broekhoff, Valparaiso – The Horizon League is lacking in starpower, and Broekhoff may not qualify as such, but he’s the best player on the league’s best team. That’s worth something, right? Broekhoff helped the Crusaders move to 3-1 in conference play with 26 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in Saturday’s win over Milwaukee.
