Major coup for DePaul. Good for them and the Big East.


Seriously looking at 10th place in 2019/20 with a whiff this fall.

Program changing type of player. Makes you think Leitao has some leeway here. In other words my guess is even if DePaul struggles again this year they are going to give him a 5th year since they know how difficult it is to win there and maybe Weems can turn things around starting in 19-20. As opposed to firing Leitao after 18-19 having Weems get a release and then start all over again.

I think Leitao is doing a pretty good job. Recruiting has really picked up for them; now they just need to translate that to the court and get some wins.

How is it possible that DePaul is out recruiting us?

Both teams sucked last year, but no doubt SJU had a far better year. At least we were nationally relevant for a couple weeks. I don't think DePaul won a game anybody knew about.

Maybe that new arena of theirs is finally paying dividends.

You mean more so than "venerable" CA?

They didn't lose 11 straight, which likely cost J'Raan Brooks.

You omitted Femi Olujobi.
He'll start for DePaul, and would have started here, had mullin bothered to be on campus for his visit.
Thanks for participating.
