The Wildcats held the Blue Jays to a combined 13 points in the middle 20 minutes of the game and poured it on the rest of the way. Justin Moore led the offensive effort with 22 points.
DePaul (9-4, 0-3 Big East) is still seeking its first conference victory of the season and came up just short on Wednesday when falling to St. John’s 89-84. The Blue Demons led midway through the second half but it wasn’t enough as Red Storm re-took control down the stretch. Javon Freeman-Liberty had 24 points and seven rebounds in the loss.
