5. Valparaiso (19-4): A strong outing against Pac-12 contender Oregon sparked hopes of cracking the top 25. A suffocating defense keeps the Crusaders on track to repeat as Horizon champs. Nine victims, including Oregon State, have been limited to fewer than 60 points. Alec Peters (17.9) and Tevonn Walker (10.9 ppg) are VU's only double-figure scorers, but the Crusaders go nine-deep in significant minutes. Reigning league defensive player of the year Vashil Fernandez is closing in on the career school record for rejections and has been a more productive scorer than anticipated.
