Notes: The Crusaders have played in the 8/9 game in four of the last five years in the Horizon League tournament. In 2010-11, last place Valparaiso played in the now-defunct 7/10 game. ... Longtime Valparaiso head coach Keith Freeman is currently the top assistant coach at No. 2 Wright State. The Raiders are 4-0 against Valparaiso since Freeman joined the staff. ... The Crusaders and Titans split two meetings during the regular season with each home team holding serve. ... Valparaiso has advanced to the quarterfinals in each of the last two years, beating Milwaukee in 2011-12 and UIC last season. — Paul Oren
