Alec Peters scored 15 points, including a critical four-point play with 1:11 to play, to lead Valparaiso to the Horizon League regular-season championship for the third time in four seasons with a 56-53 win over Cleveland State on Friday night. Valparaiso (25-6, 13-3) was up 10 with less than three minutes to play when Cleveland State (17-13, 11-5) got a 3-pointer from Andre Yates and used a turnover for a Marlin Mason trey to make it 49-45 with 1:37 to play. Anton Grady, the Vikings’ leading scorer at 14 points a game, made his only basket (he had five points and 13 rebounds) but Darien Walker made two free throws with 30 seconds left. Walker, who had 13 points, only hit one of four free throws after that but Cleveland State only managed two 3s from Trey Lewis, the last at the buzzer.

Jim Boeheim scoffs at the thought of his Syracuse Orange not playing at a high level of intensity. ”It makes no sense to ever talk about it.” Rest assured that fans of Notre Dame and Louisville already are convinced that, even with a postseason ban looming, the Orange aren’t about to throw in the towel. ”We want to prove to people we’re a good team, that we would make the (NCAA) Tournament.” Faced with the reality that its season will end March 7 at North Carolina State – the Orange will not participate in any postseason play, even in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament – Syracuse (18-10, 9-6 ACC) has responded well. Syracuse beat then-No. 12 Louisville 69-59 at home last week and posted a 65-60 road victory over the No. 9 Irish on Tuesday night.
