The best game of the day may well be Valparaiso traveling to face Iona. The Crusaders are everyone’s favorite small school sleeper pick this year, while the Gaels are always worth the price of admission.

Iona at Valparaiso

Sunday, 2:30 p.m.

True college hoops geeks know this is the sleeper game of the weekend. Both teams are favorites to win their respective leagues, and both would be a problem for a higher seeded NCAA tournament opponent. They also both have the best offensive players in their leagues—Iona senior guard A.J. English (yes, he’s Alex’s son) and Valpo junior forward Alec Peters. I will go with Valpo because the Crusaders are playing at home, but this is going to be a fun, old-fashioned shootout. I say the first one to 90 wins.
