Missouri Valley Conference invites Valpo to join the league

VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) The Missouri Valley Conference has invited Valparaiso to join the league and replace departing Wichita State.

The league said Tuesday that its nine members had voted unanimously to invite the Crusaders, who currently play in the Horizon League, effective on July 1. The Valley said it would have no further comment pending negotiation of terms. Valparaiso spokeswoman Nicole Niemi said the school would not comment.

The Valley, once among the nation's top mid-major programs, has been stung in recent years by the loss of two top men's basketball programs. Creighton bolted for the Big East and the Shockers, who've been upset about the NCAA Tournament seeds of late, are leaving for the American Athletic in time for next season.
