He holds the record for everything at Valpo.

Valparaiso v Maryland

The Phoenix Suns announced Monday the signing of Alec Peters, the number 54 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.

Peters played four years with the Valparaiso Crusaders of the Horizon League. Last season he was named conference Player of the Year and was the only player in Division 1 basketball to rank in the top 20 nationally in both scoring (23.0) and rebounding (10.1).

He left Valpo as the school’s all-time leader in scoring, rebounding, field goals made, free throws made, and games started. He scored 2,348 points in his career, third-most in Horizon League history.
