VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) Alec Peters hit four 3-pointers and finished with 23 points to help Valparaiso beat Milwaukee 67-61 on Tuesday night and maintain a one-game lead in the Horizon League standings.
Five Crusaders scored, including a 3 by Peters, during an 11-4 run that gave them the lead for good and made it 49-43 with eight minutes to play. Back-to-back buckets by Brett Prahl pulled Milwaukee to 56-53 with 3:20 left, but Peters answered with a 3-pointer, Joseph tipped in a Peters miss to make it 61-53 and Valpo made 6 of 8 free throws in the final 1:21 to seal it.
Each team shot 51 percent from the field, but Valpo outscored the Panthers 11-0 on second-chance points.
