ESTERO, Fla. (AP) Brooke Schulte scored 21 points, Jacqui Grant added 19 and No. 18 DePaul easily beat No. 11 Syracuse 108-84 in the third-place game at the Gulf Coast Showcase on Sunday night.

Alexis Peterson scored 22 points for Syracuse (4-3), which has dropped three of its last four. Briana Day added 14 for the Orange.
DePaul made a 3-pointer on the game's first possession, and the barrage never stopped. The Blue Demons made four 3-pointers in a 66-second span late in the opening quarter to open up a 29-11 lead, and finished with nine players making at least one 3-pointer in the game.
