Continuing our look at conferences:SITTING DOWN WITH JC--goldengrizzlies.com
Valparaiso and Oakland have been the teams to beat in the Horizon League of late, and despite the departure of Bryce Drew from the former, the Crusaders will remain the team to beat this season. They return star forward Alec Peters and more winning experience for first-year head coach Matt Lottich. Oakland has three starters back and will always be well-tested, while Green Bay is an intriguing team with six seniors but also having lost two all-league players.
