Honor Roll

Welcome to the TO26 Honor Roll, which we expect to be a weekly fixture that highlights the teams, players, and performances that impressed us over the past week.
Valparaiso’s Comeback Win Over Detroit — On Thursday night, the Horizon League’s top two teams squared off in Detroit, and for most of the game, the matchup failed to live up to expectations. Detroit was up by 16 at the half, up by as much as 21 in the second half, and up by 11 with under three minutes to go. That’s when Valpo, which hadn’t led the entire game, staged a furious 12-0 run in the closing minutes to escape with an improbable 89-88 win. A pair of Matt Kenney threes and a turnover apiece from Detroit’s veteran backcourt mates, Jason Calliste and Ray McCallum, fueled the comeback. The finish overshadowed two outstanding individual performances. Detroit’s Nick Minnerath poured in 36 points on 12-of-17 shooting, including 4-of-7 from three-point range, while Valpo center Kevin Van Wijk scored 31 points on 13-of-15 shooting.

A few more notes:
Detroit outscored Illinois-Chicago 53-14 in the first half of a 98-47 victory Saturday. I picked Illinois-Chicago to win the Horizon League at the start of league play. That was a great choice. Except it wasn’t.
