Vikings fall in DAC action at Michigan City
The Duneland Athletic Conference schedule continued to prove tough as Valparaiso fell to Michigan City on Friday night, 63-54. The contest was back and forth for most of the night, the Vikings just could not pull away after leading by 6 points at various points of the game. City's pressure defense and ability to force turnovers was a major factor in the game.
Jack Smiley continues to shine as the sophomore led the way with 18 points and 8 rebounds. Mason Jones added a 15 point 10 rebound double-double, and Derrick Brooks had 12 points and 2 assists.
The Valpo JV team defeated Michigan City 45-31. Colin Kaleth led the way with 16 points and 3 assists. Alec Platipodis was the spark that turned the Vikings 1st quarter deficit around with 11 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals. Isaiah Keene had 6 points and a thunderous dunk to start the rally.
Valpo will face Lake Central next Friday in the next DAC game. It is a boys/girls doubleheader at home.
