    VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Ryan Broekhoff and Kevin Van Wijk recorded double-doubles in their final regular-season home game, and Valparaiso clinched at least a share of the Horizon League regular-season title by beating Youngstown State 73-64 on Tuesday night.

    Broekhoff had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Crusaders (23-7, 12-3), and Van Wijk added 15 points and 14 boards. Valparaiso stayed a game ahead of Detroit, which beat Loyola of Chicago. Both teams play their last regular-season conference game Saturday: Valparaiso at Green Bay, Detroit at Illinois-Chicago.

    Blake Allen led the Penguins (16-13, 7-8) with 22 points, and DJ Cole had 15.

    Youngstown State led by as many as 13 early, but Valparaiso closed within 40-33 at halftime, then opened the second half on a 20-5 run, capped by two Broekhoff free throws, to lead 53-45 with 9:03 left. The Penguins couldn't get closer than six points down the rest of the way.
