    Billy Garrett Jr. scored eight points in overtime as DePaul beat Chicago State 77-70 on Sunday, barely continuing their dominance of the Cougars. Tied at 62, Chicago State (4-6) had a chance to take the lead with 17 seconds left in regulation but Quinton Pippenís running 3-pointer from the left wing was long, and DePaul rebounded. Cleveland Melvin then had a chance to win the game for DePaul, but his lay-up attempt with three seconds remaining was blocked, sending the game to overtime. The Blue Demons then scored the first six points of the extra session, before closing out the game to beat Chicago State for the 12th straight time. Melvin scored 18 and Garrett had 17 for the Blue Demons (6-4), who have won two straight after losing three of four. Melvin, playing in his 100th career game, also passed Dallas Comegys (1,613) for seventh on the schoolís all-time scoring list is nearing Stephen Howard (1,691) for sixth. DePaul led by as many as 12 in the second half but Chicago State took the lead 59-58 with 5:10 left on a Matt Ross 3-pointer, capping off an 11-0 run. Chicago State then went ahead for the last time on Corey Grayís 3-pointer with 1:21 remaining, before Brandon Young made a free throw to tie the game at 62. DePaul is in the middle of a stretch of three games in seven days, wrapping up when it hosts Houston Baptist on Wednesday. The Cougars were led by Pippen and Nate Duhonís 18 points. After starting 2-1, Chicago State has lost five of seven and plays again Monday when it hosts Southern Illinois-Edwardsville. Chicago State shot only 39 percent from the floor, and shot 13 free throws compared to DePaulís 40. That all helped the Blue Demons continue their control of Chicago State. With Sundayís win, DePaul improved to 12-0 all-time against the Cougars, whom they had beaten by an average of 23.5 points per game entering Sunday.

On Thursday, he shot 7 for 13 for the Blue Demons, who were 32 of 61 (52.5 percent) as a team during their first game in six days. Brandon Young, DePaulís leading scorer, was back in the lineup after missing last Fridayís game with a sprained ankle and had 12. Marcius, a senior forward, topped the career high he set Dec. 1 against Oregon State when he scored 15 points on 6 of 6 shooting Florida Atlantic (3-7) was led by Pablo Bertoneís 30 points, and Jackson Trapp had 17. The Owls had won two straight over Central Florida and Jacksonville after six consecutive losses, but couldnít push their winning streak to three despite shooting 45.5 percent.

DePaul, meanwhile, is trying to reverse the programís decline but reached a milestone Thursday. A one-time power, the Blue Demons extended their all-time record to 1,400-905. They havenít been to the NCAA tournament since 2004, and arenít expected to contend for another this season out of the new-look Big East. On Thursday, they overcame a slow first-half start but still managed to lead going into the break. Florida Atlantic took an eight-point lead with 6:08 left in the half on a Bertone free throw, but the Blue Demons ended the period on a 17-8 run, capped off by Melvinís tip-in of his own layup to beat the buzzer. DePaul took its first double-digit lead with 2:37 left on Garrettís 3-pointer, but the Owls got to within seven on a Bertone three-point play 21 seconds later. That, though, was as close as Florida Atlantic got.
