Valpo Wins at East Chicago
The Vikings went on the road to East Chicago and picked up a 66-51 win in what proved to be a career night for Mason Jones as he eclipsed the 1,000 point mark for his illustrious career in a Valparaiso uniform.
While Mason's game-high 29 point 11 rebound game led the way, many other players stepped up to provide a spark. Jack Smiley had 17 points and 4 rebounds, while Derrick Brooks showed great toughness battling back from some tightness to contribute 13 points and 6 rebounds himself.
The Vikings capped the night with a 24-3 run to finish the game. This was the result of some great team defense. All in all, it was a great test on the road during finals week nonetheless. Valpo continues its road trip Saturday at historic Northside Gym at Elkhart for a program-wide triple header.
The JV Boys Basketball team defeated East Chicago Cardinals 43-29 Friday.
Trent Kimes had 11 points and Isaiah Keene chipped in 8 points. Deandre Price provided great helpside defense and grabbed 7 boards and had two steals. Colin Kaleth and Trent Kimes each had 3 assists.
