Competition walked into the ARC for head coach Mary Evans and her team as they faced adversity from two of the top five teams in the Missouri Valley Conference: Illinois State and Bradley. Both teams have pinned more than 10 wins overall, and came this weekend with offensive authority. At the end of the weekend stretch, Valpo fell against Illinois State 72-60 and Bradley 75-61.
“It was a really tough weekend. I think we played two very good teams in Illinois State and Bradley. In this league, it’s really good,” Evans said.
Both ISU and Bradley are top 100 Rating Percentage Index (RPI) teams, according to Evans.
