The Bulldogs shot 19-of-27 in the second half and did not commit a turnover. “That was a roller coaster game for sure,” coach Chris Holtmann told reporters afterward. ”We needed to respond to what they did in the first half, and our guys did. We picked up the pressure defensively and played with more freedom offensively in the second half.” Junior forward Kelan Martin had 22 points and seven rebounds, while senior guard Kethan Savage 17 as the Bulldogs won their 14th straight home game – 11th this season.

In their last action, DePaul was a 78-68 loser on the road against Red Storm. They covered the +10.5-point spread as underdogs.
