• Valparaiso senior forward Alec Peters had 30 points in the Crusaders’ win over Illinois-Chicago on Sunday. That enabled him to replace Bryce Drew as the school’s alltime scoring leader. That’s altogether appropriate considering Drew recruited Peters and coached him for three seasons. Peters is a great, great college player whose legacy is now entrenched.

Small Forward: Shane Hammink, Valparaiso (Netherlands)
4 of 7

Senior forward Alec Peters is far and away Valparaiso's best player, but the Crusaders aren't just a one-man team. Fellow senior Shane Hammink is averaging 14.8 points and 4.1 rebounds per game and is both their top overall shooter (49.7 percent) and their leading assist man at 2.7 per game.

Not bad for a 6'7" wing who began his career at LSU but only scored 74 points in 47 games from 2012-14 before transferring. He averaged 8.9 points per game in 2015-16 with Valpo; this season he has five 20-point games, most recently Jan. 8 against Detroit Mercy when his 23 points included making 14 of 15 foul shots.

Hammink, whose father Geert Hammink was a first-round pick of the Orlando Magic in 1993, has represented the Netherlands in international competition since 2009.
