When: 5 p.m. today.
Where: Montagne Center, Beaumont, Texas.
Radio/Internet: WVUR-FM (95.1)/valpoathletics.com.
Valparaiso will win if: The Crusaders can take better care of the basketball. VU had 31 turnovers in a loss to DePaul in the opening round of the Preseason WNIT. Betsy Adams had a team-high 15 points in the loss, but the team will need more balance from the perimeter in this consolation-round contest.
Austin Peay will win if: They can get the ball to Whitney Hanley. She leads the team in scoring (13.5 ppg.) and assists (5 apg.).
Notes: This will be just the third meeting between the schools, the first in 17 years. VU is 2-0 in the series.
