Valparaiso heads to Youngstown State in a battle of Horizon League teams on Thursday. The Crusaders are having another good year (what's new), coming in at 12-4 and 2-1 in conference. Their lone loss in conference was to Oakland who figures to be the team to beat in the Horizon. Youngstown State has been OK this year, probably a little better than expected. They are 8-9 overall and 2-2 in conference, having won their latest, 80-75 over Wright State.
