LAS VEGAS – The Blue Demons arrived in Las Vegas Tuesday in preparation for the Play4Kay Showcase tournament that tips off Thursday and discovered they are ranked among the top teams in the country.

DePaul is No. 21 this week in the USA Today Coaches Poll that was announced earlier in the day.

The Blue Demons are coming off a 3-0 week that saw them knock off then-No. 21/21 Oklahoma 111-108 in overtime on Nov. 13 at McGrath-Phillips Arena.

Last weekend, coach Doug Bruno’s program captured the Maggie Dixon Classic title with a 110-71 victory over Delaware State behind Ashton Millender’s career-high 27 points and an 86-78 win over Saint Louis as Mart'e Grays scored a career-high 25 points.

DePaul (3-1) is riding a three-game winning streak into the Mandalay Bay Events Center where it will take on unbeaten Florida Gulf Coast (5-0) in its tournament opener. That game tips at 2:30 p.m. Central Time with a live stream available at

A victory on Thursday could set up a showdown with No. 9/8 Ohio State in Friday’s semifinals.
