ROSEMONT, Ill. -Despite strong play from its guards, the University of Kansas men's basketball team (6-2) dropped a close non-conference decision to DePaul (3-4) Saturday afternoon, 64-57. Sophomore Mario Chalmers led the Jayhawks with 15 points and junior Russell Robinson added eight points and five assists, but it was not enough to fend off the upset-minded Blue Demons.

DePaul senior Sammy Mejia scored eight-straight points in a late 14-0 run by the Blue Demons and the Jayhawks never regained the lead. Mejia knocked down three-pointers on consecutive possessions late in the second half, tying the score and subsequently giving the Blue Demons a three-point lead that they would not relinquish.

In addition to Chalmers' 15 points, two other KU players reached double figures. Sophomore Julian Wright scored 12 points for the Jayhawks, and freshman forward Darrell Arthur added 10 points and five rebounds.

Mejia paced DePaul with 23 points and eight rebounds while Wilson Chandler netted 12 and pulled down seven boards.
