MURRAY, Ky. -- Ryan Broekhoff had 18 points and eight rebounds to lead Valparaiso to a 66-64 victory over Murray State on Saturday.

Jordan Coleman added 10 points for Valparaiso, which snapped Murray State's six-game home-winning streak.

Murray State (9-3), which snapped its school-record road winning streak at 16 in a Dec. 22 loss at Dayton, jumped to an early 11-2 lead behind 3-pointers from Dexter Fields and Isaiah Canaan. But Valparaiso outscored Murray State 21-11 over the next 15 minutes to take its first lead, 23-22.

The Crusaders led just once, 43-42, in the second half before Ben Boggs hit two free throws and a 3-pointer on back-to-back possessions to put the Crusaders up for good.

Valparaiso (10-4), picked to win the Horizon league, outrebounded Murray State 42-26 and forced 17 turnovers.

Canaan had 24 points and Ed Daniel had 14 to lead Murray State.
