Horizon League basketball standings 2013: Valparaiso wins second title in a row

Michael Hickey

Bryce Drew hit The Shot for Valpo in the 1998 NCAA tournament, and now he's won two conference titles in two years as the Crusaders' coach.

The Valparaiso Crusaders clinched the Horizon League's outright title in their last regular-season game Saturday, and they'll take the No. 1 seed headed into this week's conference tournament.

The Crusaders, who finished 23-7 and 12-3 in league play, clinched the conference title convincingly Saturday with a 75-56 win at the Green Bay Phoenix. Valparaiso has now won two Horizon League regular-season titles in two seasons under head coach Bryce Drew. Valparaiso's 19-point win Saturday avoided a three-way tie for first place in the conference.

The Detroit Titans, which was the Horizon League's NCAA tournament representative last season, finished second in the standings at 11-4. Both Valparaiso and the Titans earned byes to the semifinals of the Horizon League tournament.

One game behind Detroit was third-place Green Bay. The Wright State Raiders were fourth at 9-6.
