    CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cedric Jackson scored 16 points and Cleveland State used a 16-point differential at the line to beat Valparaiso 69-63 on Saturday night.

    The Vikings (14-5, 7-0 Horizon League) hit 22-of-30 free throws, with Jackson leading the way by making nine of 12. Valparaiso got to the line just seven times, hitting six.

    Chris Moore added 12 points and J'Nathan Bullock 11 for Cleveland State.

    Shawn Huff led Valparaiso (13-6, 4-3) with 14 points, with Brandon McPherson adding 12.

    Cleveland State led 30-23 at the half and never surrendered the lead again. The Crusaders cut the advantage to four points early in the half and to six with 6 minutes remaining but each time they made a run the Vikings would step to the line and make big foul shots.

    Kevin Francis had Cleveland State's final field goal, a 3-pointer with 6:34 left. The Vikings scored their final 11 points on free throws.
