It was reported by CBS’ Jeff Goodman that forward Donnavon Kirk will transfer from DePaul to Miami for his final year of college...
DePaul forward Cleveland Melvin was the team's leading rebounder this season (6.8 rpg) and his 16.6 ppg trailed team leader Brandon Young by just a tenth of a point.

The students point to the poor timing with...

The Allstate Arena is actually located in suburban Rosemont, and the Blue Demons have struggled to get fans into the arena's 17,500 seats since they started playing there...
DePaul duo Cleveland Melvin & Brandon Young spent the last three days learning from some of the best in the game at the Kevin Durant Skills Academy in Chicago. Hear what the two Blue Demons have to say about their offseason in this report.
DePaul put up a tough effort, but the fouling out Jamee Crockett and Cashmere Wright late were too much for the Blue Demons to overcome. UC got a career best 14 from Justin Jackson, along with 16 point games from Sean Kilpatrick and my best friend Dion Dixon. UC played flat for the longest time, but they were lucky that DePaul took a slew of bad shots late and couldn't finish...

DePaul forward Tony Freeland is transferring to tend to his ailing grandmother back home in Los Angeles. Freeland, a junior, was already out for the season because of a shoulder injury. He played in 57 games and made 15 starts over two years, averaging 6.8 points and 3.8 rebounds. He says he's "going home to help my ill grandmother" and that he wants to finish school.
DePaul forward Tony Freeland has decided to transfer, according to a team spokesman.
DePaul is improving, although you might have trouble knowing it from their Jan. 1 game against No. 1 Syracuse, but if you look deeply into the box score you see the forward Cleveland Melvin is the real deal, scoring 23 points.
DePaul started fast, then survived a second-half slump on the way to a 69-58 nonconference victory over Loyola on Wednesday night.
Moses Morgan scored 13 points, Krys Faber had 12 and Jamee Crockett and Jeremiah Kelly had 11 apiece as the Blue Demons (5-3) ran their series winning streak to 11 over the Ramblers (1-7).
DePaul opened up a 47-17 lead just before halftime and extended...
