Posted: Updated:

VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - Ryan Broekhoff scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to help Valparaiso cruise to a 69-46 win over Northern Illinois on Tuesday.

The Crusaders (2-0) led by nine at halftime but blew the game open by hitting a trio of 3-pointers in the first 2:24 of the second half and leading by 25 as they pulled away. 2 of the 3s came from Ben Boggs, who finished with 11 points.

Northern Illinois (0-2) was led by Aksel Bolin with 10 points and Daveon Balls, who had nine, but the Huskies shot only 29% (19 of 65) for the game - including just 4 of 18 from 3-point range.
