In front of a canvas of fans wearing yellow, blue, and red the DePaul Blue Demons (11-17; 4-12 Big East) and Marquette Golden Eagles (16-14; 7-9) traded blows down the stretch as the contingents of fans with conflicting rooting interests packed into a rocking...

A date with the No. 3 ranked Villanova Wildcats is never an easy task. But because the matchup between the DePaul Blue Demons (10-16; 3-11 Big East) and Villanova Wildcats (24-3; 11-3 Big East) is scheduled at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia instead of at Wintrust Arena,...

Anything you can do, I can do better. That's what Seton Hall Pirates (18-9; 7-7 Big East) senior forward Desi Rodriguez was probably thinking as he dropped a career-high 33 points on 12-for-21 from the field in the Pirate's 82-77 win against the DePaul Blue Demons (10-16; 3-11 Big East) on Saturday afte...

It's probably a good thing that DePaul's next game is away from Wintrust Arena. The DePaul Blue Demons (10-15; 3-10 Big East) are 5-9 at home this season, but haven't won at Wintrust Arena since Dec. 21 against Miami (Ohio) and are still searching for their first conference win in their home building....

Perhaps the hottest team in America rolls into Wintrust Arena on Wednesday for an 8 p.m. bout with the DePaul Blue Demons (10-14; 3-9 Big East). It's not Duke, or Michigan State, or Purdue, or Villanova, or Virginia or one of the other blue-blood programs that are perennially among the best in the...
