DePaul vs Chicago State

DePaul 74, Chicago St. 64

  •  

CHICAGO (AP) - Brandon Young scored 21 points, and a renewed defensive effort in the second half allowed DePaul to overcome a 14-point deficit Wednesday and beat Chicago State 74-64.

On the day Chicago State announced it will join the Western Athletic Conference in 2013, the Cougars nearly delivered an upset win against their crosstown foe. Chicago State (2-8) shot 53 percent in the first half, including 4 of 8 on 3-point attempts, to help build a 44-30 halftime lead.

DePaul (5-3) couldn't have played much worse in the first half. The Blue Demons committed 12 turnovers - finishing with 21 for the game - and shot only 30 percent from the field.

Chicago State went cold and put up an ugly shooting performance in the second half. The Cougars went 5 of 26 from the field and did not make a shot until Matt Ross' layup with 11:39 remaining.
