Huskies to host Valparaiso

It took a while, but brackets for the CBI have finally been announced and the Huskies will host Valparaiso Wednesday at 6 p.m.
Here is the schedule. And Here are the brackets.
The Huskies received a No. 1 seed in the West and if they beat Valpo they will take on either Nevada or Houston in the second round in a game that apparently would also be played at Edmundson Pavilion on March 24. The Valpo game will be televised on Fox College Sports.
As you can see, if UW wins the West Region it will play the winner of the East (Virginia, Richmond, Old Dominion, Rider).
Valpo went 21-13 this year overall and 9-9 and fourth in the Horizon League, which was won by Butler.
Here is a more in-depth look at Valparaiso from ESPN.com. And here is a story on the matchup from the Valparaiso web wite.
Quickly perusing the stats, Valpo appears to still be a good three-point shooting team, hitting 39.1 percent this year. Indeed, Valpo’s leading scorer is forward Shawn Huff who ranks second in the nation in three-point shooting at 48.4 percent. Huff is a 6-7 native of Finland.
Valpo finished with an RPI of 97.
It was 10 years ago this month that Valpo had its best moment when it advanced to the Sweet 16 thanks to this miraculous shot from Bryce Drew.
