DePaul Blue Demons
The DePaul Blue Demons have had a disappointing season by all stretch of the imagination. They played well in their non conference schedule but since conference play has started, they have really struggled.
They come into this game with a record of 9-20 and sit in 10th place in the Big East conference. Since conference play started they have gone 2-14. They come into this game having gone 1-11 in their last 12 games.
There is no glaring holes for this team, they just don’t have the talent yet to compete in the Big East conference.
The DePaul Blue Demons average 69.4 points per game well shooting 43 percent from the field. They really struggle from behind the arc only shooting 33.1 percent.
The future does look bright for the Blue Demons. A lot of their key players are young and will be back in the coming years.
One of those players is Sophomore guard Eli Cain. He is averaging 16 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. For the Blue Demons to pull another upset, he needs to have a big game.
This a key game for the Providence Friars. They can’t really help their NCAA Tournament chances, but if they lose this game their chances could be gone.
The Friars come into this game with a record of 18-11 and sit in 4th place in the Big East Conference. They seem to be getting hot at the right time.

The Friars are led by Junior Forward Rodney Bullock.
