    VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Brandon Wood scored 17 points to lead four Valparaiso players in double figures and the Crusaders defeated Ball State 69-52 Tuesday night.

    Cory Johnson had 16 points, Howard Little 11 and Ryan Broekhoff 10 for Valparaiso (10-4), playing its first game since winning a week ago at Oakland, Mich., 103-102.

    This was a much lower scoring affair as the Crusaders led 37-25 at halftime. Valparaiso shot 52 percent from the field and held a 32-25 rebounding edge, led by Erik Buggs' eight boards.

    Little also had seven assists for the winners.

    Jarrod Jones led Ball State (6-4) with 18 points and seven rebounds. He had eight of the Cardinals' 19 field goals.
