    VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) -- Dan Oppland and Seth Colclasure each scored 23 points as Valparaiso defeated Centenary 99-73 Thursday night in a Mid-Continent Conference game.

    Centenary took a 7-1 lead early in the game after a jumper by Chris Watson, but the Crusaders then went on 29-8 run over the next 10 minutes.

    The Gents cut what had been a 15-point Valparaiso lead down to six points early in the second half only to see the Crusaders go on another big run -- 22-7 in about five minutes -- to take control of the game.

    The win snapped a four-game losing streak for Valparaiso (12-8, 5-5 Mid-Con), which outrebounded Centenary 43-24 and won the turnover battle 18-9 to gain a 34-4 advantage in points off turnovers.

    Watson led the Gents (4-17, 2-9) with 17 points, followed by Clarke Jackson with 12 and Eric Holmes with 10.

    Mohamed Kone added 15 points and 11 rebounds for Valparaiso.
