Poor DePaul might have made a mistake leaving Conference USA for the Big East. They are winless at this late point in the season. They have a good team, but when playing what could be the best conference in the US, they just don't have the guns to do much.
The mostly freshman team rose to the occasion and gave #10-ranked Villanova all they could handle. DePaul led by 8 at half, and even when going down by 12, they battled back to be within two points with 50 seconds left. Unfortunately, Villanova made eight straight free throws which the Blue Demons were unable to overcome, even with a three point shot in the waning seconds. DePaul lost by two points. That would have been something to have upset a top ten team.
Allstate Areana charges a ripoff $11 to park, Our seats were good, but $35 is WAY TOO MUCH for a college game. But, this is in Rosemont, a town that tries to give Chicago a run for rip-off city.
The Chicago Rush Arena football team plays here as does the Wolves minor league hockey team.
