The DePaul Blue Demons men’s squad continues this season’s conference play against highly ranked Big East rival Georgetown. In his second year at the helm, Head Coach Oliver Purnell leads the up-and-coming Blue Demons battalion, which has sprinted to an impressive start through 16 games. Reigning Big East Rookie of the Year and proficient scorer Cleveland Melvin anchors a potent DePaul offensive attack, dazzling hoops fans with rafter-rattling dunks, aggressive rebounds, and a penchant for drawing up elaborate plays on his pocket Etch-A-Sketch.
Meanwhile, the women’s team charges back onto the McGrath-Phillips Arena floor behind Head coach Doug Bruno, who recently earned his 500th victory at the collegiate level and replaced his bench seat with a royal-blue throne. Seeking its 10th straight NCAA Tournament appearance this March, the Blue Demons have thrilled supporters so far this season by consistently maintaining a top 20 national ranking.
