    VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Brandon Wood scored 18 points and Valparaiso weathered an 18-0 second-half run by Detroit to win 74-70 Saturday.

    Michael Rogers added 13 points for the Crusaders (12-13, 7-6 Horizon League), who have won six of their last eight games. Brandon McPherson and Cory Johnson scored 12 apiece, and Ryan Broekhoff grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds.

    Chase Simon led the Titans (14-10, 7-6) with 20 points. Xavier Keeling added 17 and Eli Holman 13.

    After Rogers' dunk put Valparaiso ahead 47-32 with 17:44 to go, Detroit went on an 18-0 run, finally going ahead 50-47 on Keeling's 3-pointer with 11:20 left.

    Detroit pushed its lead to 54-50, but Valparaiso responded with eight in a row for a 58-54 edge. The Crusaders did not give up the lead again, though Simon's 3-pointer with 1:38 left trimmed it to 71-70. Two McPherson free throws and one by Broekhoff sealed it.
