DePaul is 6-1 (.857) all-time in games at McGrath-Phillips Arena... DePaul’s 9-3 start during the non-conference schedule was the best through 12 games since the 1999-00 squad also started 9-3... over the last 25 seasons, only three teams have started with nine or more wins in the first 12 games... the Blue Demons currently hold a seven-game winning streak against Chicagoland programs that includes victories over Chicago State, UIC, Loyola and Northern Illinois... in each of Oliver Purnell’s two seasons at DePaul, the Blue Demons have faced three Chicagoland opponents during the non-conference portion of the schedule with wins in each meeting... Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young have each scored at least 20 points in five games this season... the Blue Demons are 3-2 in those games... DePaul is 7-0 this season with at least four players in double-figures and 4-1 with 10 or more three-pointers.
IT COULD HAPPEN:
A win would give DePaul back-to-back BIG EAST wins for the first time since the start of the 2007-08 conference schedule... the Blue Demons started that league slate with an 84-76 win against Villanova and a 70-65 decision against Providence... Cleveland Melvin needs one blocked shots to move in a tie for 16th all-time at DePaul... Jeremiah Kelly needs three steals for 150 career...the three steals would also move him up to eighth all-time at DePaul... a loss would give DePaul three straight home losses for the first time this season.
BRANDON COULD JOIN ROD:
With seven assists, sophomore Brandon Young could be the first player since Rod Strickland to record at least 100 assists in each of his freshman and sophomore seasons at DePaul. Strickland (1985-88) dished out 159 assists as a freshman in 1985-86 and 196 assists during his sophomore season in 1986-87. Young totaled 115 assists during his rookie campaign last season and enters the St. John’s game with 93 assists this season.
