ESPN is calling this week "Rivalry Week". Well who better for the Blue Demons to play on ESPNU on Monday night than Marquette. The Golden Eagles are DePaul's longest continuous rival.
While Marquette has held the upper hand in terms of postseason success and rankings in recent years, the old cliché of throwing out the records when these two teams meet still applies.
Look no further than the last time these two teams met at Allstate Arena in 2010. The Blue Demons went 1-17 in conference that year, but their sole win came against Marquette. It was interim coach Tracy Webster's only win as coach of the Blue Demons.
In what would be the highlight moment of his career at DePaul, junior guard Mike Stovall launched an 18 foot jumper with 0.7 seconds left on the clock to defeat the Golden Eagles 51-50.
Both teams are coming off a short turnaround for this game. Marquette (19-5, 8-3) lost 76-59 to the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in South Bend on Saturday afternoon. While DePaul (11-11, 2-8) is on the heels of a 74-66 loss at Cincinnati on Saturday night.
The Irish managed to hold Darius Johnson-Odom to just 12 points. Johnson-Odom had been named Big East player of the week for last week.
The difference in that game was three point shooting. Notre Dame shot 47.8% from beyond the arc, while Marquette only shot two of 13 for 15.4% from three point territory.
The Blue Demons will have to hope for similar three point futility from Marquette on Monday.
After having only eight scholarship players available for Saturday's game, DePaul did receive some good news. Moses Morgan has been cleared to return to practice and participate in Monday night's game after fainting in practice on Thursday.
It's unclear at this time whether senior guard Jeremiah Kelly will play on Monday. Kelly has been sidelined for the last two games with muscle soreness in his hip.
Marquette has been playing without 6-8, 290 lb. sophomore Davante Gardner who is out with a left knee sprain.
The Last Time
On January 18, 2011 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Golden Eagles walked away with a 94-64 victory. Jimmy Butler and Darius Johnson-Odom scored 20 apiece in the winning effort. Four Blue Demons finished in double-figures. Freshman Cleveland Melvin led DePaul with 20 points. Jimmy Drew contributed with 12, Brandon Young added 11, and Tony Freeland chipped in with 10 points.
