College basketball, the home of the upset, the cinderella story, the home of the Depaul Blue Demons. Depaul has not won a Big East game in forever, let alone this season. Henceforth, my predection, as proclaimed in the title, that Depaul will knock off ninth ranked Notre Dame may seem… crazy. Although, really, it is not.
Depaul has had close games all season! They are one of the youngest teams in the country and has one of the top freshmen in all the nation in Cleveland Melvin! This pressing team has a chance to be a tournament team next year! You heard it here first! But, I am focusing on tonight for now.
If you have the Big Easy Network, you know what I am talking about here, Depaul usually is within eight points half way through the second half, yet they seemingly can’t pull it out, they pulled this charade against West Virginia (lost by two), Georgetown, and Seton Hall… If they make their shots early, this game will be theirs, because I know how good Ben Hansburough is, I just don’t think they’re ready for the shock they might see at Depaul tonight…. That’s why this game is a must watch. How bout that Big East!
Prediction: Depaul 62 Notre Dame 57
