Brundy and Greene were an NCAA tournament fixture in their identical four-year careers (1985-89). Twice they helped the Blue Demons advance to the Sweet 16 and twice to the NCAA Second Round.
Brundy is the all-time leader in field goal percentage, fourth in steals, fifth in blocked shots, ninth in rebounds and 16th in points. He is second in field goals for a season and fourth in points for a season---trailing only the legendary Mark Aguirre in both categories.
He averaged 19.5 points and 10.2 rebounds his senior year, and only three other Blue Demons have averaged a double-double for a season. Brundy was selected by the New Jersey Nets in the second round of the 1989 NBA Draft.
Greene made an immediate impact on the program with is 14 assists against Northern Iowa as a freshman. That is the third-highest, single-game mark in school history. The captain of the 1988-89 team is second all-time in appearances, fourth in assists and minutes played and seventh in free throw attempts.
Hale (1989-93) competed in four consecutive NCAA tournaments and helped DePaul earn its first NCAA berth in 1990. That team topped Western Kentucky in its Mideast Region opener at Alumni Hall before falling to Washington.
During her career, DePaul posted an 82-41 record and won the Great Midwest Conference title in the 1991-92 season. Hale is 11th all-time in rebounds and 15th in points.
O'Dekirk (1985-88) was an Academic All-American who finished her career second all-time in assists. Her glove work was a big reason why DePaul finished fifth in the country in fielding percentage in 1986. She was North Star Conference First Team twice and co-MVP of the league as a senior.
Dunson (1992-96) holds the school record in the 55-meter and 110-meter hurdles. He was the final Great Midwest Conference Outdoor Championships titlist in the 110m hurdles and the first Conference USA outdoor champion in the same event.
Led by coach Ray Nakamura and standout Anna Moratis, the 1978 women's volleyball team advanced to the final four of the NCAA Regional tournament. Moratis was named to the All-Regional Team.
Cacciatore's generosity resulted in the construction of Cacciatore Stadium, home to DePaul's men's soccer, women's soccer and softball teams. The stadium features permanent seating for 1,200, complete concessions and restroom facilities and a state-of-the-art press box. Cacciatore earned a bachelor's degree and a law degree from DePaul and joined the DePaul University Board of Trustees in 1973.
