Three wins, 3 days, Valpo advances beating Missouri St.

ST. LOUIS (AP) Javon Freeman-Liberty scored 29 points with nine rebounds and five assists and Valparaiso beat Missouri State 89-82 Saturday to advance to the championship game of the Missouri Valley Conference.

The No. 7 seed Crusaders (19-15) beat 10th-seed Evansville Thursday and upset No. 2 seed Loyola Chicago on Friday. Valpo faces No. 4 seed Bradley on Sunday.

Isiaih Mosley hit a 3-pointer to give Missouri State (16-17) a 28-19 lead with 6:17 before halftime. The Crusaders responded with a 10-0 run, took the lead and were up 40-38 at intermission. Freeman-Liberty's jump shot with 12:50 left extended Valpo's lead to 61-48 and they maintained safe distance until Keandre Cook's 3 with 21 seconds left reduced the Bears' deficit to 85-82. Ben Krikke sank to foul shots a couple of seconds later to seal the win.
