Rosemont, IL — Myke Henry and the DePaul Blue Demons (6-1) were not very neighborly to their visitors of 90 mile north, the Milwaukee Panthers (4-5). The junior swingman scored 13 of his 15 points in the second half of a 83-61 victory. He also grabbed rebounds in a rout. Suffocating man-to-man defense and a […]

DePaul sophomore forward Tommy Hamilton IV played through what coach Oliver Purnell called an ankle strain Sunday in the Blue Demons’ win against Stanford.
“I’m a little concerned about that, in terms of a one-day turnaround,” Purnell said.
The injury does not sound serious, but DePaul is back in action Tuesday against Northern Illinois...
A few days after losing to previously winless Lehigh at home, DePaul looked like a totally different team Sunday in a 87-72 win against Stanford. Here is The Catch and Shoot’s rapid reaction to the Blue Demons’ victory:
—This team has some potential, apparently. Against its toughest non-conference opponent, DePaul played its best basketball. Stanford made its share of mistakes...
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...
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...
DePaul’s 2014-15 roster took a hit Wednesday with three-star recruit Raymond Doby choosing to reclassify and instead enroll in prep school, initially reported by Scout.com. The Saint Louis native will attend St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy this season.
Doby, ranked the fifth-best recruit in Missouri by ESPN.com, is the fifth recruit in four years under Oliver Purnell...
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. Simpson, a native of North Chicago, pledged to Detroit just over a week ago, but has apparently switched to DePaul. Simpson was originally headed to Illinois State out ...
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...
When St. John’s fell at DePaul on January 14th, it was the turning point for both teams. With the victory, the Blue Demons became 2-3 in the Big East and looked to be flirting with mediocrity.
They have just one victory since and instead reverted back to what they’ve always been under Oliver Purnell- the laughingstock of the league. Think Illini football in the Tim Beckman era...
DePaul Senior Cleveland Melvin went out in the worst possible way. He was the Big East rookie of the year as a freshman, and had a decent shot of finishing up second to Mark Acguirre as DPU’s second leading scorer. Instead he’s kicked out of school and off the team? Maybe he left by his own accord? We still don’t know. DePaul’s communications about Cleveland Melvin were,...
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...
DePaul was aggressive and opportunistic for the first 19 minutes against No. 5 Kentucky.
However, an early 11-point lead slipped away as the visiting Wildcats forced a halftime tie and then took command in the second half on the way to beating the Blue Demons 96-85 Thursday night.
Brittany Hrynkko scored 20 points, Megan Rogowski had 19, and Megan Podkowa and Jasmine Penny added...

Despite the distractions of her first visit back home, Kentucky freshman Linnae Harper still managed to be all business on Thursday.
The Wildcats' reserve guard, a former Chicago high school star, scored 18 points to lead No. 5 Kentucky to a 96-85 victory over DePaul.
''I was very nervous, I hadn't been home in a few months and I was excited to be here,'' said Harper, a 2012 state...
