SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Joe Burton scored 14 points on 5-for-9 shooting and Valparaiso held off Santa Clara in the second half for a 76-68 win Monday night.

Markus Golder added 12 points and Bakari Evelyn had 11 for Valparaiso (9-3), which shot 56 percent from the field, including 9 for 18 from long range to snap a three-game skid.
