DePaul Women Win Another Squeaker
The DePaul women's basketball team closed out another close victory on Tuesday night topping St. John's 59-58. The Blue Demons had just earned their way into the nation's top 25 when they beat Rutgers on Saturday (ranked 21st at the time) by a narrow two point margin. DePaul now ranks 25th in the nation and has a chance to add a couple of conference wins in their next two games againts Georgetown and West Virginia. Both teams are below DePaul in the Big East standings and they are both home games. The Blue Demons will have a chance to really prove themselves when they face Notre Dame (currently ranked 13th) on February 8. After that, DePaul only has three more home games this season, none of which are ranked opponents, but it is an excellent chance to see these women before they hit the Big East tournament. The women Blue Demons are clearly the more competitive of the two DePaul basketball teams and the fact that they play right on the Lincoln Park campus are two great reasons to come out and cheer this team on.
