Peters, Bowling Will Square Off in Best of 2013-2014 Semifinals

Thursday, June 19, 2014

The results are in from last week's Best of 2013-2014 quarterfinal vote.

Alec Peters' 30-point game at Evansville following widespread damage to his hometown of Washington, Ill. edged out the Crusaders' 1-0 win over Northwestern in women's soccer by just 18 votes. 

Peters advances to the semifinals where he'll face bowling and their two victories over two of the nation's top-three teams in back-to-back matches. Bowling won its quarterfinal match over men's soccer after garnering 69% of the votes.

Bowling beats two of the nation’s top-three teams in back-to-back matches – Feb. 1, 2014

- The Valparaiso bowling team entered the Prairie View A&M Invitational knowing the field contained seven of the nation’s top-10 teams, and the schedule worked out to where the Crusaders faced two of the top-three teams in the country in back-to-back matches on Saturday.  First, Valpo edged out #2 Maryland Eastern Shore by a single pin, and followed up the dramatic win with a 42-pin victory over #3 Central Missouri.  It marked the first time in program history the Crusaders earned consecutive wins over such highly ranked opponents.

Alec Peters (men's basketball) at Evansville - Nov. 20, 2013

- Just three days after devastating tornadoes hit his hometown of Washington, Ill. and two days after he visited to assist in recovery efforts, freshman Alec Peters delivered one of the top performances by a freshman in program history.  Peters scored 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting, hitting seven 3-pointers along the way in the Crusaders’ come-from-behind effort.  Peters’ 30 points were the most by a Valpo freshman since Raitis Grafs scored 30 against Belmont on Jan. 10, 2000.
