Green Bay vs Valparaiso

Valparaiso 70, Green Bay 69

  •  

VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - Ryan Broekhoff made a desperation 3-pointer as time expired Saturday, giving Valparaiso a 70-69 victory over Green Bay and a berth in the Horizon League tournament final.

Valparaiso had pulled within 68-67 on Matt Kenney's 3-pointer with 7 seconds left. After Green Bay's Alec Brown made a free throw, Broekhoff threw up a shot from the right wing while he was falling down. It went in, setting off a raucous celebration on Valpo's home court.

Broekhoff scored 25 points and made five 3-pointers to lead the Crusaders (25-7), who will face third-seeded Wright State in Tuesday's final. The Raiders needed their own buzzer-beater - Miles Dixon's off-balance jumper - to beat Detroit 56-54 earlier Saturday.

Keifer Sykes led the Phoenix (18-15) with 31 points, including four 3-pointers. Green Bay lost despite shooting 53 percent from the floor.

Valparaiso led for most of the game, but Green Bay went ahead 51-49 on Sykes' layup with 8:36 left and didn't trail again until Broekhoff's game-winner.
