Valparaiso, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - LaVonte Dority poured in 26 points as the Valparaiso Crusaders coasted to a 75-60 win over the Green Bay Phoenix in a Horizon League tilt at the Athletics-Recreation Center.

Keifer Sykes led the Phoenix (17-4, 7-1) with 19 points and six assists. Green Bay, which was without the services of starting center Alec Brown, had not lost this season in conference action.

Valpo connected on 70.8 percent of its field goal attempts in the opening period en route to a 42-29 lead at the intermission. Green Bay was limited to 34.5 percent shooting from the floor including a 1-of-6 clip from behind the 3-point line before the break.

The Crusaders cooled off to sink 45.5 percent of their field goal tries in the second period, but managed to convert 13-of-16 tries at the free-throw line. Green Bay trailed by as many as 26 points before a late surge cut the final deficit to 15 points.
