During the first 10 minutes of the DePaul/University of Illinois-Chicago game, many were having flashbacks to the Buffalo game. The Blue Demons physically looked like the better team, but a lack of execution, and awful 1-9 shooting felt a lot like last Sunday’s debacle.
Thankfully, UIC did an equally terrible job of making shots and as a bonus, they also did not take care of the ball. With 10:14 left in the 1st half, Darious Hall made a layup with an assist by the resurgent Charlie Moore for DePaul to take a 15-14 lead, which they never relinquished. Lovely.
The Blue Demons slowly choked the Flames to death, expanding their lead in each 10 minute increment for the rest of the game.
After it was all said and done, DePaul finished with an 86-65 win.
