Sports Report:

Basketball: The DePaul basketball teams open the doors to McGrath-Phillips Arena on Saturday afternoon for the annual open practice. The practice gives season ticket holders, students, fans and alumni the chance to get a preview of the men's and women's basketball teams as they get ready for the upcoming season.In addition to the chance to see each team practice, other activities include team autographs and the Blue Demon Tradition Store that features new apparel and authentic items from DePaul athletics. Men's and women's basketball season ticket holders can also pick up their tickets for the 2012-13 season. Click Here for the full story. 

Women's Basketball:    Anna Martin and Jasmine Penny had a good laugh with one another at a women’s basketball practice last week. They were marveling at the actual lines the Blue Demons formed during drills. Fresh in their minds were memories of the 2011-12 season when a rash of injuries reduced DePaul to a seven-player rotation.“It felt strange at first having more than seven or eight people at practice,” said Martin, an Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American. “Just hearing Doug (coach Doug Bruno) say: ‘four in, four out,’ was something because I had not heard that in a long time.” Click Here for the full feature.
