Another Loss for the Blue Demons
The Blue Demons had a chance to get their first Big East win and end their six game losing streak against Marquette this past Saturday, they accomplished neither. DePaul lost their seventh straight game losing at Marquette 79-70, Dar Tucker lead the Blue Demons with 18 points. DePaul jumped out to an early five point lead, but when Marquette took the lead with just under 17 minutes to play in the first half, they never looked back. They had a 14 point lead at half time and lead by double digits most of the second half. DePaul will most likely continue to struggle in the Big East, which is one of the top conferences in the country. For all of you hardcore basketball fans who just want to see a great team, I suggest making your way to Allstate arena this Wednesday to watch DePaul take on Connecticut Huskies, who are currently ranked number 2 in the nation. This would be an incredible upset if DePaul could find a way to steal this game from one of the best teams in college basketball. Who knows, maybe this could be the highlight of a disappointing season for the Blue Demon players, and the fans as well, who should definitely storm the court if DePaul comes out on top.
