When: 1:35 p.m. today.
Where: Athletics-Recreation Center.
Radio/Internet: WVUR-FM (95.1)/valpoathletics.com.
Valparaiso will win if: It can come close to duplicating Thursday's defensive effort. VU picked up its first home win of the season with a 73-64 decision over Wright State, which shot 28.6 percent from the field in the first half and missed its initial 18 3-point attempts.
Detroit will win if: It gets off to another quick start. The Titans jumped out to a 34-12 lead over the first 16 minutes of a 68-52 win over VU on Jan. 6.
Notes: The Titans lead the series 7-4, which includes a 4-1 mark at the ARC. ... Ashley Timmerman is still perfect at the free-throw line for her VU career. She's made all 21 attempts in her first season with the Crusaders. !~ Jim Hunsley
