  • DePaul tops St. John’s for Big East women’s title Mar 11, 2014 11:43 PM
    Brittany Hrynko scored 15 points and Megan Rogowski added 14 on Tuesday and No. 23 DePaul beat St. John’s 65-57 to capture its first Big East women’s tournament championship. Megan Podkowa had 12 points and Jasmine Penny added 11 as the host Blue Demons (27-6) won their seventh straight and earned the league’s automatic NCAA tournament berth. Aliyyah Handford scored 13 points and Briana Brown added 12 for the Red Storm (22-10), making their first Big East title game appearance since 1988. DePaul never trailed in the second half after taking a 30-29 lead just before halftime. It was the first women’s championship game for the realigned Big East since powerhouses Connecticut and Notre Dame departed last year for the American Athletic and Atlantic Coast conferences, respectively. The championship tournament was also held for the first time in Chicago after Connecticut hosted the past 10 years. DePaul also finished atop the regular season standings for the first time since joining in 2005-06. DePaul took an early 15-9 lead, but Handford scored five points in a 9-2 run that gave the Red Storm their first edge at 18-17 on a layup with 8:52 remaining. Hrynko answered with a 3-pointer for a 20-18 Blue Demons lead. Three players later combined on seven unanswered points to put St. John’s up 25-22 with 4:11 remaining. The lead changed hand twice more before DePaul took a 30-29 advantage into the half after Rogowski’s layup with 37 seconds left. DePaul led by seven points through the mid stages of the second half, including a 49-42 edge at the 9:57 mark on Rogowski’s layup off an inbound pass. The Red Storm closed the gap to four at 57-53 on Brown’s 3-pointer with 2:24 left. Rogowski followed with two free throws and Penny banked in a shot with 1:54 left for a 60-53 lead. Brown recovered a loose ball for a layup to cut the DePaul lead to 60-55 with 45 seconds to play, but Chanise Jenkins hit a pair of free throws two seconds later to restore a seven-point lead. Connecticut captured seven Big East tournament titles from 2005-12, plus last year’s NCAA championship. Notre Dame won the 2013 league tourney on the way to its third straight Final Four appearance. Both remained unbeaten after winning conference titles this week and are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 nationally. “They’re off the charts,” DePaul coach Doug Bruno said. “I never felt bad about what we achieved in the previous Big East. It was no disgrace to get to the semifinals in that league. If you could go to the final four of the old Big East, you could go to the Final Four of the NCAA tournament.” Whether the new Big East produces a Final Four entry won’t be known until next month. But the current 10-team league — eight from the previous league plus Butler and Creighton — now features more balance and competitive play. Regular-season champion DePaul was 15-3 in conference play while runner-up St. John’s went 13-5. In Monday’s semifinals, St. John’s had to rally in the second half to force the first overtime then a second before beating Creighton. DePaul held off a late Marquette comeback and didn’t secure its win until hitting six free throws in the final minute.

  • DePaul women win Big East regular season title Mar 1, 2014 6:07 PM
    Doug Bruno and his DePaul Blue Demons were sitting at the airport watching the final seconds of Creighton’s game against Marquette on their phones. When the final buzzer sounded Saturday and Creighton lost, the team let out a big cheer having clinched the Big East regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament next weekend. It’s the first championship for the school since 2004-05 when DePaul was champions of Conference USA. “I’m really proud of our team, our staff, and am proud of the players for having the resiliency to fight back from a 2-2 start in the league,” Bruno said.

  • Georgetown takes down DePaul 71-59 Feb 3, 2014 10:58 PM
    Markel Starks scored 26 points and Georgetown continued its mastery of DePaul, winning 71-59 on Monday at Allstate Arena. D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera added 17 and Jabril Trawick had 15 for the Hoyas, who were coming off a 64-60 upset win Saturday in New York over then-No. 7 Michigan State. That victory came after a stretch of five straight losses and defeats in the Hoyas’ last six of seven. Georgetown (13-9, 4-6 Big East) also prolonged its dominance of the Blue Demons, topping DePaul for the second time this season and 14th straight time overall. The 14 consecutive wins are the most for one Big East team against another, and DePaul hasn’t beaten Georgetown since Jan. 22, 1994. The Hoyas didn’t take their first lead until an Aaron Bowen 3-pointer with 14:43 remaining in the second half, but then took their first double-digit advantage with 6:26 left at 56-44, part of a 10-0 run. That was aided by DePaul’s shooting, which was 32.1 percent during the second half. Starks, Georgetown’s leading scorer who had 21 points during the Hoyas’ 61-54 win over DePaul on Dec. 31, went just 6 for 18 from the floor but hit three 3-pointers and 11 of 14 free throws. After shooting 4 for 24 in his previous two games, No. 2 scorer Smith-Rivera was 3 for 11 but 3 for 6 during the second half of a game the teams combined to attempt 67 free throws. Monday’s game was the start of a stretch of games for Georgetown mostly against teams struggling in conference play. On Saturday they face Butler, then after playing Providence, the Hoyas visit St. John’s and Seton Hall. The Hoyas got off to a slow start. DePaul took a 30-27 lead into the break and led by as much as nine, holding Georgetown to 30 percent shooting from the floor. That included the Hoyas making just one of their first 13 shots. Brandon Young led DePaul with 15 and Billy Garrett Jr. had 12 as the Blue Demons (10-13, 2-8) lost their fifth straight. DePaul’s R.J. Curington was named the Big East’s Rookie of the Week. He scored a career-high 22 points during the Blue Demons’ 77-72 loss Sunday to Providence, and had 10 against Georgetown. The Blue Demons were once again without leading scorer Cleveland Melvin due to suspension. Melvin, who came into Monday as the Big East’s seventh-leading scorer at 16.7 points per game, is suspended indefinitely and missed his third straight game. DePaul did get back guards Garrett (illness) and Charles McKinney (ankle) after each missed two games. Neither started, but Garrett entered with 17:06 left in the first half while McKinney checked in with 11:45 remaining.

  • Providence defeats DePaul 77-72 Feb 1, 2014 3:29 PM
    Bryce Cotton scored 28 points to lead Providence to a 77-72 win over DePaul on Saturday afternoon at Allstate Arena. R.J. Curington led DePaul (10-12, 2-7 Big East) with a career-high 22 points. LaDontae Henton added 19 points and Tyler Harris had 18 for Providence (16-6, 6-3), which led by as many as 16 points in the first half before DePaul tied it with 7 minutes left in the second half. Providence has won six of its last seven games. The Blue Demons never led in the game and have lost four straight and seven of their last nine. DePaul was once again without three key players. Leading scorer Cleveland Melvin missed his second straight game due to a suspension. Melvin was seventh in the Big East in scoring at 16.7 points per game entering Saturday. Point guard Billy Garrett Jr. (illness) and guard Charles McKinney (sprained ankle) also were out for the second straight game. DePaul tied it at 62 on Edwind McGhee’s jumper with 7:01 remaining. The Blue Demons had trailed for all but the first 15 seconds of the game. Providence regained the lead on Henton’s layup with 6:30 left, and Cotton hit a 3-pointer with 5:40 remaining. The Blue Demons got to within three on Tommy Hamilton IV’s layup with 2:22 left. Henton and Cotton combined for three free throws for a 72-66 lead before Brandon Young’s layup cut the lead to 72-68 with 33.3 seconds left. Cotton extended Providence’s lead to 76-68 with two more free throws and a dunk with 14.4 seconds remaining. Cotton scored 17 of his points after halftime. He is second in the Big East in scoring at 20.5 points per game. Hamilton added 13 points and Young had 12 for DePaul. Providence shot 53.2 percent to DePaul’s 41.8 percent. The Blue Demons went 8 for 20 from 3-point range. DePaul pulled to within one on Curington’s layup with 18:08 remaining. Cotton responded with five straight points to give Providence a 47-41 lead. The Friars extended the lead to 57-46. Providence led 42-37 at halftime after shooting 60.7 percent from the field compared to DePaul’s 41.4 percent. Both teams were 4 for 9 from 3-point range. The Blue Demons kept in the game by shooting 9 of 11 from the free-throw line. DePaul’s bench outscored Providence’s reserves 22-0. DePaul went on an 8-0 run to cut the lead to 32-24 with 3:34 before halftime. Forrest Robinson hit a 3-pointer with 2.8 seconds before the break to pull DePaul to within 42-37. The Blue Demons intercepted the inbounds pass, but Hamilton’s dunk attempt arrived after the buzzer. The Friars improved to 23-8 all-time against DePaul. DePaul beat Providence 83-73 in their previous meeting.
