With two weeks to go in the Horizon League season, we are not significantly closer to figuring out a champion than when the coaches and media cast their preseason ballots in the fall.
Of the four favorites heading in to the season, three are still very much in the race. Valparaiso leads the league with an 11-3 mark while Cleveland State sits a half game back at 11-4. Butler sits tied for third with surprising Milwaukee a game and a half behind Valpo at 10-5, with the Panthers holding the tiebreaker after earning a season sweep of BU. Wright State saw its hopes for a conference title double-bye disappear after getting swept on their recent road trip to Butler and Valparaiso.
With three or four games left on the schedule (plus the Bracket Buster), here's where your favorite Horizon League team stands.
