No. 21/19 DePaul Earns Comeback Win at Creighton
Overcomes eight-point halftime deficit for 60-56 triumph to take over first place in the BIG EAST.

DePaul (11-5) rebounded from a loss at Marquette last Thursday with a 71-48 triumph at Providence Sunday that began a difficult stretch of four games in eight days. The 48 points was the second-best defensive effort of the season behind holding Loyola Chicago to 47 in early December.

BIG EAST Honor Roll recipient Mart'e Grays led the Blue Demons with 19 points against Marquette and followed up with 15 points, six rebounds and two steals versus the Friars.

Those two games propelled the junior forward to the top of the team scoring list at 14.1 points a game. Fellow junior Ashton Millender is right behind her at 14. Also averaging in double figures are Amarah Coleman (12.4), Chante Stonewall (11) and Kelly Campbell (10.8). Coleman finished with a career-high 12 rebounds against Providence.



Grays is averaging 17 points a game in BIG EAST play while Millender is at 13.8. Campbell is averaging 11 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists a game in conference.

Grays, Millender and Campbell have been quite dangerous from three-point range in conference games. Grays is converting 45 percent from deep while Millender is at 44.1 percent and Campbell is hitting 43.8 percent of her attempts.

Combine that with Deja Cage (3-for-6) and the foursome is shooting 45 percent from beyond the arc.

The Blue Demons lead the nation in three-pointers per game and are second in three-point baskets and attempts. They are fifth in assists, sixth in assists per game and assist-turnover ratio, No. 9 in scoring offense and No. 13 in turnover margin.

Campbell is third in the country in assist-turnover ratio and No. 16 in assists. Millender is No. 14 in three-point baskets and No. 19 in long-distance attempts.

Senior guard Coleman is 111 points away from becoming a 1,000-point scorer in her career. Bruno needs eight more wins to reach the 700 plateau in his coaching career.

DePaul’s BIG EAST game on Friday originally scheduled for 5 p.m. has been adjusted for a 4:30 p.m. tip at Wintrust Arena.
