News On The Horizon 2/13/2013

Tonight’s Quick Hits.
Nice, Valpo. The final stretch of the Horizon League season could have been epic. Detroit could have avoided a loss Saturday at Green Bay, and thus stayed within one half game of first-place Valparaiso entering Tuesday’s road matchup at Wright State. The Crusaders could have lost that game; Wright State is 8-5 in Horizon league play, and came in having won three straight. Neither part of that equation proceeded as desired. Valpo held firm on the road to stay 1.5 games up in the league standings, providing more proof that Butler didn’t leave behind a completely barren league. We’ve searched long and hard for a team ready to rise out of the post-Butler morass, and Valpo has given every indication it is ready to be that team. One big hurdle remains: On Saturday, Detroit (who beat Cleveland State at home Tuesday night) visits Valpo with a last-ditch attempt to steal the conference title squarely on the line. The Titans need that game. Anything less would allow Valpo to cruise to a conference title.
Tuesday Night’s All-Americans.
Nick Minnerath, Detroit – The name most people associate with Detroit is point guard Ray McCallum. The Titans have another player you should be talking about: Minnerath. He scored 34 points and snared 12 boards against Cleveland State.

Potential upset: The Horizon League is getting crowded at the top of the standings, but Valparaiso has a 1.5-game lead on Detroit and Wright State. On Tuesday, the Crusaders take a road trip to Wright State in a key tilt (7 p.m.). Valpo won the first meeting, by six points at home, and has won nine of its last 10 games. However, Wright State has won three in a row and knows how to knock down shots and force turnovers.

With four conference games left in the regular season, the Crusaders have a two-game lead in the loss column on Detroit. The Titans stayed within striking distance by defeating Cleveland State, though.
