If there is anyone who knows what it takes to win games in March it is Valpo head coach Bryce Drew, the author of 1 of the most famous buzzer-beaters in history back in the 1998 NCAA tourney. This tourney has been won by a different school in each of the past four years, but the Crusaders are ready to break that streak as the regular season champ. They get to host the semifinals and finals due to finishing number one, and their only home loss all year came way back on December 6th. Valpo is one of the 10-best rebounding teams in the nation, and 6’10” center Vashil Fernandez is averaging nearly three blocks per contest on defense.
