Recap: Oakland vs. Valparaiso

Rochester, MI (Sports Network) - A layup by Duke Mondy in the final minute was key as the Oakland Golden Grizzlies squeezed by the Valparaiso Crusaders, 70-68, at the Athletics Center O'rena.

Mondy, Travis Bader, and Ryan Bass contributed 16 points apiece in the Oakland (4-7) victory. Corey Petros chipped in 12 points and six rebounds.

For the Crusaders (7-4), Ryan Broekhoff recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Kevin Van Wijk and Ben Boggs scored 11 points apiece, while LaVonte Dority led the squad with 14 points off the bench in the setback.

The first half ended with Oakland leading, 34-32. The Grizzlies played impressively on the defensive end of the floor, forcing 13 turnovers and blocking four blocks, and which helped a lackluster 35.7 field goal percentage in the opening 20 minutes.

Valparaiso led by eight points with four and a half minutes to play, but Oakland closed out the game on an 11-0 run, with Mondy draining the game- winner with 20 seconds left to seal the win.

The hosts survived despite shooting just 38.3 percent from the floor on the night, including 5-of-15 from beyond the arc.
