Men’s Basketball Season Wraps Up

14 Mar

Nevermind that the DePaul men’s basketball team ended its season on Wednesday with a record of 9-24. We had one late-breaking flash DePaul Blue Demonof excitement on Tuesday, when the Blue Demons upset the Cincinnati Bearcats in the opening round of the BIG EAST Tournament.

Yes, it was DePaul’s first conference win this year. But we finally had good news and we savored it.   

Coach Jerry Wainwright is optimistic that better days are ahead for the men’s basketball team. He was quoted in a Chicago Sun-Times article:

“We feel like we have a good young team. I think there’s a good foundation….

“Any criticism about what happened this year should be directed at me. I put a very young team through a very difficult situation. All you can hope is that they’re better for it. They stood up to it and weren’t broken by it.”

We ask, what do you think of the men’s basketball team?

And don’t forget about the women’s basketball team, which is 23-9. The women’s NCAA tournament bracket will be announced on Monday, March 16 at 6 p.m. Watch the coverage on ESPN or join other DePaul fans at McGrath Arena to cheer for the women’s team. For more information on the event, call Katie Ramsey at (773) 325-7504.
