After a mid-week victory over St. John's, things felt back to normal in 'Nova Nation - until Wednesday night's apocalyptic event in which DePaul moved to 3-0 on the season to grab sole possession of first place in the Big East conference. Almost everyone will expect the Wildcats to destroy the Blue Demons, especially with the game being played in Philadelphia, but Oliver Purnell has his squad ticking behind the strong play of Billy Garrett Jr.
Last year, the 'Cats beat DePaul by an average of 25.5 points in two meetings and were extremely successful in limiting the impact of Garrett and Tommy Hamilton IV.
Can they do it again?
