Even when Alec Peters isn’t sensational, he does something sensational. While the Valparaiso forward had, by his standards, a mediocre game in Wednesday’s 80-61 win against Chicago State, his 15 points were enough to surpass 2,000 points for his career.
Peters entered the game needing just one point to reach the milestone, and he got it on Valparaiso’s first possession off a Lexus Williams feed.
Peters finished with his fourth straight double-double and seventh of the season: 15 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists. He shot 5-of-12 from the field and committed five turnovers, though.
The 6’9″ senior is now averaging 25.5 points to rank 2nd in the nation behind only Central Michigan guard Marcus Keene at 31.9 ppg.
Valparaiso (10-3) visits UIC on Friday for its Horizon League opener.
