Current Records: Western Michigan 1-1; Valparaiso 0-1
What to Know
The Valparaiso Beacons will take on the Western Michigan Broncos at 5 p.m. ET Sunday at home. Valpo has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency.
The Beacons ended up a good deal behind the Toledo Rockets when they played last Monday, losing 85-70. One thing holding Valpo back was the mediocre play of Kobe King, who did not have his best game: he played for 33 minutes with and five turnovers.
Meanwhile, everything came up roses for WMU at home against the Goshen Maple Leafs this past Thursday as the team secured a 99-62 win.
Western Michigan's victory lifted them to 1-1 while Valparaiso's defeat dropped them down to 0-1. We'll see if WMU can repeat their recent success or if Valpo bounces back and reverse their fortune.
