Men's Basketball: They gathered on a hot, summery day at a barbershop in the heart of the West Side hoping to convey in their own unique way the very essence of DePaul basketball.There was Quentin Richardson with the boyish smile Blue Demon fans came to love when he orchestrated a return to the glory days in the late 1990s. In the barber's chair to his left was his basketball renaissance wing man, Bobby Simmons---as articulate and thoughtful as ever.Stretching out his 7-foot frame in the third chair was Steven Hunter who headed up the second wave of Chicago-area standouts headed to DePaul after Richardson signed on in 1998. Aguirre could not make it to the barbershop because of a schedule conflict, but his TV spot is both poignant and compelling with rich, powerful overtones that convey the deep passion he carries for the Blue Demon basketball legacy.
