Congrats Crusaders on winning the 2011-2012 Horizon League men's Basketball Regular Season Title

Wow, It feels like March Madness already in our home town of Valpo!

What a year for The Valparaiso University Men's Basketball Program.

VU's win over Loyola in overtime at the ARC last night solidified it's place as

Horizon League Regular Season Champs!

The Twitter feed hashtags

#GoValpo

#ValpoGameDay

were alive with tweets of Congrats from all over the country from alumni and fans and reporters!

Within hours of the win, a celebratory You Tube Video was posted onto Facebook.

xxxxxxxx

History was made as now VALPO will HOST the Horizon League Tournament for the 1st Time!

All this happened with LOTS OF NEW at Valpo this 2011-2012 season! New Head Couch Bryce Drew, several NEW Players, and

against all odds (at the beginning of this season, Valpo was "predicted" to finish 6th in the HL conference :) 

.....including an announcement that directed our hearts, thoughts and prayers to a more important matter->

Early in the year both of Bryce Drew's parents were diagnosed with cancer and underwent surgery days apart! (Former Head Coach Homer Drew and his wife Janet).

WOW - we are so thankful and inspired by many things this season including Bryce's focus in a difficult time!

The fight of the Team to not give up  despite the odds was impressive and seeing Mr. & Mrs. H. Drew recover & come back to watch some home games was an answered prayer:)

Come on out to the Horizon League Championship Tournament Games Saturday 3/3/12  and Sunday 3/6/12 to experience it for yourself. There's nothing like basketball in Indiana :)
