CHICAGO- DePaul's Brittany Hrynko played well in the Blue Demons' two exhibition games and in the first round of the Maggie Dixon Classic. But observers probably could not help wondering when Hrynko would explode. Those observers, and the Duquesne Dukes, got their answer Saturday night.

CHICAGO- The Maggie Dixon Classic women's basketball tournament at McGrath-Phillips Arena featuring DePaul, Dayton, Mississippi Valley State, and Nicholls State this Friday and Saturday involved basketball games, but it also involved a tribute and a remembrance.
CHICAGO- DePaul University fielded a football team from 1907-1938. The team's game in 1928 versus Loyola University drew 80,000 fans to Soldier Field. And while it is not known if there was tailgating at that game, there was tailgating outside McGrath-Phillips Arena Friday afternoon for DePaul's women's basketball team.
Pat Summitt looked almost uncomfortable standing at center court as she received the Maggie Dixon Courage award.
The Hall of Fame coach never wanted to be the center of attention when she surprisingly announced back in August that she had been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's. As always has been the case, she wanted the focus to be squarely on her Tennessee team.
