    ROCHESTER, Mich. -- Duke Mondy scored 24 points and Travis Bader added 20 as Oakland clinched a 75-70 come-from-behind victory over Valparaiso on Saturday night.

    Oakland (6-11, 1-1 Horizon League) trailed for more than 29 minutes until a 19-5 run -- including two 3's each by Mondy and Bader -- put the Golden Grizzlies ahead with 3:32 to go. An Alec Peters jumper tied the score at 70, but the Crusaders closed out the game with two missed 3-point attempts. One more 3-pointer from Bader and two free throws by Mondy handed Oakland its first Horizon win.

    Bader and Mondy combined to make nine of the Golden Grizzlies 10 3-pointers.

    LaVonte Dority led Valparaiso with 20 points and five assists, and the team shot 50 percent (24 of 48) from the field. The Crusaders (9-8, 1-1) committed twice as many turnovers as Oakland, 12 to 6.
