Valparaiso to join Missouri Valley Conference

VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) Valparaiso is officially the newest member of the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Indiana college accepted the league's invitation on Thursday and will join on July 1. The Crusaders have been part of the Horizon League since 2007.

Valparaiso was a rumored finalist in 2013 when Creighton left for the Big East. Valley Commissioner Doug Elgin said the school has continued to upgrade its athletic programs over the past four years.
