Khyle Marshall's 17 points paced the Bulldogs (17-13, 11-7), whose five-game winning streak ended. Andrew Smith added 12 points, and Ronald Nored had 11 points and eight assists.

Butler would have clinched second place with a victory but now can finish anywhere from second to fifth, pending Saturday's results.

Valparaiso never trailed, enjoying its biggest lead at 27-12 late in the first half.

The big difference came at the free throw line. The Crusaders sank 26 of 33 to Butler's 13 of 22.
