VALPARAISO, Ind. -- Ryan Broekhoff scored 21 points and Kevin Van Wijk added 12 to lead Valparaiso to a 63-52 victory against cold-shooting IPFW on Wednesday night.

Broekhoff had nine rebounds for the Crusaders (6-2).

Frank Gaines scored 19 points for the Mastodons (5-5), who shot just 31.4 percent from the floor, including 4 of 20 in the second half, which prevented them from staying in a game they trailed by three points at halftime.

Broekhoff scored six straight points to ignite a 10-2 second-half run that gave Valpo control. With the score 45-41, Broekhoff made a 3-pointer, drained a jumper and hit a free throw on consecutive possessions, and the Crusaders built a 55-43 lead with 5:33 remaining.

IPFW got no closer than nine the rest of the way.
