Video Details

DePaul stuns Providence at the Dunk. Four different Blue Demons score in double figures. DePaul improves to 10-14 overall.

ANNOUNCER 1: DePaul's at their best when they reverse the ball and then attack the rim.

ANNOUNCER 2: There's Cartwright, one of many. About half the team we're told flu- ridden including the coaching staff as Kalif Young knocks it down.

--did Boston College.

ANNOUNCER 1: And a dynamic personality. He's like the mayor of Providence.

ANNOUNCER 2: No question. Oh, what a block by Maric. Break out, Cyrus, nobody home, crushes one down.

ANNOUNCER 1: Well, that's a good way to get your transition game going.

ANNOUNCER 2: Here's Alpha Diallo, gives to Bullock, turned it over. Breakout for DePaul again. McCallum, Euro step, layup with the finger roll.

ANNOUNCER 1: And Providence sloppy with the ball, and quick hands by DePaul.

--attacked the rim with his size.

ANNOUNCER 2: 6' 6" junior out of Willingboro, New Jersey, right across the bridge from Philly, as Cartwright takes it all the way to the cup.

ANNOUNCER 1: It's a nice sequence there. The dribble handoff.

ANNOUNCER 2: --with Watson, Cartwright, Edwards, and a turnover. Back the other way comes DePaul. Nothing doing there. This is Justin Roberts, a freshman from Indianapolis. Deep jack, outside, and it's good by Eli Cain.

ANNOUNCER 1: Well, he's aggressive and--

ANNOUNCER 2: Stutter step to the lane, lay it up and a two-hand dunk.

ANNOUNCER 1: And Strus--

ANNOUNCER 2: Oh, and that's a great setup.

ANNOUNCER 1: --gets in the paint and causes the defense to collapse.

One of the few breakdowns DePaul has had. Nate Watson, wide open under the paint.

ANNOUNCER 2: Strus, with a pull-up, let's it rip, and he hits a 3.

ANNOUNCER 1: He's a big-time shooter.

ANNOUNCER 2: 30 to 19. Turnover, and it's DePaul basketball. Strus going to take it all the way, give it to Maric for the dunk. And DePaul's on fire. It's 32-19.

ANNOUNCER 1: And they continue to still--

ANNOUNCER 2: You can see the energy surge here with DePaul, the confidence. We come up on two and a half to go in the first half. Traveling baseline, there's Reed. 3 ball is good, count it, and a foul.

ANNOUNCER 1: I tell you what, this DePaul team has come out here with the discipline, poise--

ANNOUNCER 2: --into the frontcourt. Cain, with two, with one, let's it fly. And he hit it.

Wow! What a finish by Eli Cain. And the DePaul Blue Demons, a 15-point halftime lead.

Misses. Set up in a corner, McCallum. Strus, up top, he hit his last 3, make it two in a row.

ANNOUNCER 1: That's just too late. Jackson got out to him. It was too slow.

ANNOUNCER 2: Here's Cain, get it to Strus. And that's three consecutive 3's he's hit.

ANNOUNCER 1: And they've all come off the catch. And you know, Diallo, again, didn't close out.

Watson is--

ANNOUNCER 2: Boy, they beat the press right here. Get a layup with a dunk. How about that? McCallum on a wonderful feed.

ANNOUNCER 1: DePaul had control of the whole game.

ANNOUNCER 2: A resounding win for the Blue Demons. 80 to 63, ending a three-game losing streak. And it snaps a four-game homes win streak by Providence. A really good performance by Dave Leitao's group, who goes to 3 and 9 in the conference, 10 and 14.
