With the Wildcats’ home arena undergoing renovation, the women’s basketball program is playing their home games this season at Evanston Township High School’s Beardsley Gym, located at Wildkit Drive just south of Church Street in Evanston.

DePaul (6-3) has won six of its last eight games with an offense featuring six players averaging in double figures led by Ashton Millender at 14.6 points a game.

Right behind her are Amarah Coleman (13.8 points a game), Mart'e Grays (13.6), Tanita Allen (11.6), Kelly Campbell (11.1) and Chante Stonewall (10.2). Campbell leads the BIG EAST Conference and is No. 8 in the nation in assist-turnover ratio.



The Blue Demons have the No. 6 scoring offense in the country at 89.4 points per game and lead the nation in three-pointers per game. They are No. 2 in three-pointers and three-point attempts, No. 6 in assist-turnover ratio, No. 7 in assists and assists per game and No. 8 in turnover margin.

They lead the BIG EAST in eight statistical categories including scoring offense, assists and three-pointers and are receiving votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

DePaul is coming off a 103-69 loss to No. 1/1 Connecticut last Friday at Wintrust Arena. Coleman led the home team with 16 points while Campbell equaled her career high with six steals. That gave the sophomore guard 17 steals in her last four games.

Northwestern has started the season at 6-4 and snapped a three-game losing streak last Saturday with a 68-36 win over Stony Brook. Lindsay Pulliam topped all scorers with 20 points.

On the season, Pulliam leads the Wildcats in at 15.5 points per game. Abi Scheid is averaging 13.2 points while 6-foot, 2-inch Pallas Kunaiyi-Akpanah is averaging 10.9 points and 10.4 rebounds.
