The DePaul Blue Demons have nothing to lose in Wednesday’s contest, and the coaching staff should allow them to play freely at both ends of the basketball court. DePaul has to good of a recruiting base to finish last in the Conference.

The DePaul Blue Demons lost five of six to end the 2018 regular season with the lone win coming in the span against Wednesday’s opponent.
DePaul finished at the bottom of the standings with just four Big East wins. Head Coach Dave Leitao is in his second stint as the head coach of the DePaul basketball program, the first 2003-05 with an NCAA Tournament appearance.
His second began in 2015, and this could be his last go around unless his team can make some noise in the annual spectacle.
DePaul University has access to some of the best high school talents in the nation with its location in Chicago, and it’s been nearly three-decade since Ray Meyer was able to land big-time players from the “WINDY CITY.”
Guard Max Strus is the team’s leading scorer with sixteen and a half points per game. The Blue Demons have a few talented players who can put the ball in the bucket.
The key to a DePaul win is to guard the three-point line with authority, Marquette can shoot the long ball with the best in the nation.

Head Coach Steve Wojciechowski is in his fourth season on the bench with one NCAA Tournament showing.
The two teams have met twice this season each winning on their home court.
Wojciechowski is aware of the Blue Demons physical nature and length at virtually every position on the court; he expects a physical contest.
