Milwaukee Women's Basketball To Hold Walk-On 2016-17 Preseason All-American Team--COLLEGE BASKETBALL TALK
Alec Peters, Valparaiso: Peters is the best player at the mid-major level in the country, a kid that graduated from school in three years and had the chance to leave for literally any other program in the country. He didn’t. He opted to stay at Valpo, where he’ll be the centerpiece of new head coach Matt Lottich’s offense. It’s not crazy to think he could average 23 points.

Valparaiso Crusaders

A program that made the NCAAs two times in the past four years. Now the expectations -- from outside -- will dip because Bryce Drew left to take the Vandy job. Who's the new coach? A man named Matt Lottich. He should have an inaugural year eased in thanks to an unexpected decision by Alec Peters, who could have gone pro, but didn't. He could have had his pick of basically any program in America to transfer to in his senior season -- without having to sit a year -- but didn't. He didn't do that even after his coach switched jobs. Valpo will have a chance to get back to the tourney because of it. Peters will be one of the 25 or so best players in America, and so Valpo is worthy of inclusion here.

17. Rhode Island at Valpo, Nov. 29: Credit Dan Hurley for scheduling this game. Valpo will again be on the short list of the best mid-major teams in college hoops this season. Alec Peters bypassed going pro and even still stayed true to the school after Bryce Drew took the Vandy job. A win here would be a huge boost to URI's dossier down the road, while a Valpo loss might well take it out of at-large consideration.
