DePaul’s New Basketball Arena Is Coming

We have heard it for almost 2 years: The new arena for DePaul is coming. But nothing has happened. It’s been all talk and no action on breaking ground. That is, until today. DePaul officials said today that the arena will be on track for breaking ground this winter. This is the first time anyone has heard of a set time for starting the construction. Having this winter set for...

Illini football approaching DePaul basketball in lack of visibility

Don’t let the 3-1 record fool you. A win over two mid-majors (one that’s only been in FBS for three years) and a lowly FCS team doesn’t resolve anything. Last year’s Illini football team went 3-1 in the non-conference, in a much more impressive manner than this year, and yet still ended up a train wreck in league play. Looking at the 2014 Illini football winning percentage...

COMMIT: JUCO PG Aaron Simpson to DePaul

Just a day after news broke that the DePaul Blue Demons lost an incoming combo guard recruit in Jon Davis, DePaul landed his replacement in junior college guard Aaron Simpson.

By retaining Oliver Purnell, DePaul admits diminished expectations

Oliver Purnell has won everywhere he’s been; except for DePaul. It’s very mysterious why that is, but after four seasons in Lincoln Park, Purnell has shown zero progress. Regress is the only movement DePaul basketball has seen under the Coach hired away from Clemson. It’s hard to understand why there is so little local media chatter right now about Oliver Purnell not being...

Should DePaul Cut Ties With Oliver Purnell?

The DePaul Blue Demons have an overall record of 10-11 and are 2-6 in Big East play. The slight improvement fans saw, after wins against Butler and St. John’s, has diminished. Has head coach Oliver Purnell’s opportunity at DePaul slammed shut? The former Clemson coach has had some positives while with the Blue Demons. Recruiting Billy Garrett Jr. might have been because his father...

Make or break season for Oliver Purnell at DePaul?

Oliver Purnell has a long way to go to turn around DePaul basketball. And given the lack of progress he’s shown, you have to wonder how much time he really has to do that. This is year four of Oliver Purnell’s seven year deal. And in order for him to make it all the way to the end, DePaul will have to show us something much more than they have in the three year Oliver Purnell...

UConn Women Crush DePaul, 91-44

The DePaul Blue Demons had a tough time getting to Storrs, CT on Sunday for their matchup with the UConn Huskies. They didn't get to Gampel Pavilion until just over an hour before tipoff. And even though they're really good friends, DePaul coach Doug Bruno probably wishes his team just stayed back in Chicago. The Huskies got out to a quick start and never looked back...

A new DePaul basketball arena is needed!

  Over the last year or so, there has been a lot of talk about the DePaul Men’s Basketball program getting a new arena closer to campus. Before we talk about a new DePaul basketball arena, let us travel back in time for moment…..
