DePaul men’s basketball to play in Las Vegas Classic


DePaul Athletics announced on Thursday that the men’s basketball team will participate in the 2016 Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic.

The Blue Demons will join Missouri State, University of Southern California (USC) and Wyoming in Las Vegas on Dec. 22-23. The tournament as a whole involves eight teams and the Blue Demons will host two games prior to heading to Las Vegas with the opponents still to be determined.

Each team is guaranteed four games in the tournament.

The pairings for the tournament will be announced once all the teams are confirmed. This news adds to the Blue Demons’ non-conference schedule which, so far, does not have any other confirmed opponents, although they will reportedly play Rutgers as part of the 2016 Gavitt Tipoff Games.
