20-7, 2nd in Horizon

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Oakland sweeps Valparaiso with Friday night's win. Grizzlies will get a chance to grab a third win and at-large berth in the Horizon League tournament, which is in nearby Detroit. Grizzlies play fast, possess top-60 defense, excel at the free throw line and fly behind Martez Walker, who can play on any level.

Jalen Hayes has had two shots wedge between rim and backboard in the first four minutes of this game. Unlucky, that. (Valpo up 5-4)
