CHICAGO - DePaul will play 15 home games, 18 BIG EAST Conference contests and travel to Kansas and San Juan, Puerto Rico during the 2007-08 season it was announced today by Blue Demon head coach Jerry Wainwright.
"Once again this season, The BIG EAST Conference will be the premier
basketball conference in the country and with the new 18-game league
schedule, it is evident that we will be tested each and every time we
step on the floor," Wainwright said. "We've again scheduled challenging
non-conference opponents in the hope that it will serve as good
preparation for league play."
Wainwright's squad will play 18 games against teams that reached
postseason tournament play a year ago including 12 that reached the NCAA Tournament.
DePaul opens the 2007-08 season on the road at Creighton (November 9)
before returning home to host four straight contests at the Allstate
Arena (Northwestern - November 17, North Carolina A&T - November 24,
and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi - November 28.
The Blue Demons travel to Kansas on December 8 before returning home to
face Vanderbilt (December 12) and UIC (December 15).
For the second straight year the Blue Demons will leave the mainland for a tournament as they play in the San Juan Shootout December 20-22. The tournament opens against Mississippi before a date with Clemson and
concludes against La Salle. The non-conference portion of the slate winds up with a trip to Detroit on December 29.
For the first time in four years the Blue Demons will open the
conference portion of the season at home, and for the first time ever,
will have three straight at home to open league play. The first of 18
BIG EAST Conference contests will bring Villanova to the Allstate Arena
on January 3 followed by dates with Providence (January 5) and
Georgetown (January 8). DePaul's first league road game will be on
January 12 when it travels to Carnesecca Arena in Queens to face St. John's. January concludes with trips to Villanova at the Pavilion
(January 16) and Marquette (January 26) along with home games against
Rutgers (January 19) and Syracuse (January 30).
February starts with consecutive road games at Notre Dame (February 2)
and Providence (February 5). DePaul then entertains USF (February 9) and Louisville (February 12). A road swing to Connecticut in Hartford
(February 19) and Seton Hall (February 23) takes place before West Virginia invades the Allstate Arena to conclude the month on February
The regular season will wrap up with three contests in March including
the final home game of the season when Notre Dame comes to town on March 2 for Senior Day. Road trips to Cincinnati (March 6) and Pittsburgh (March 9) round out the regular season.
