Don't forget to put on your scarlet red and blue colors as you cheer the DePaul basketball team to victory. The "D" was worn on uniforms to distinguish it from the city's high school, and an announcer called the players the "D-Men," which later turned into the "Demons" moniker that eventually stuck. While the Blue Demons previously made waves in the Great Midwest Conference, the team became part of the more competitive Big East in 2013. The Blue Demons garnered their name by accident. Dave Leitao is returning to his fifth straight year as head coach, and this is his second tenure leading the program. The 2018-19 season was a turnaround year for the Blue Demons as they finished with a 19-17 record. You can catch all the action as returning seniors Jalen Coleman-Lands and Lyrik Shreiner lead the team.
