| 1998-99 record |
| 18-13 overall, 10-6
C-USA (lost to California in NIT second round)
| Coach |
Kennedy, 25-36 (two seasons), 351-227 overall|
| Projected starting lineup |
F Bobby Simmons, 6-7, So. |
Had a solid rookie year, averaging 11.2 points and 6.1 rebounds while notching a
team-high 53 steals.
F Quentin Richardson, 6-6, So.
A versatile scorer who can post up defenders or knock it in from outside, he'll play some two- guard, some
wing and even some power forward.
C Steve Hunter, 7-0, Fr.
Only the third 7-footer in DePaul history, Hunter averaged 17 points, 12
rebounds and an amazing 8.5 blocks as a high school senior.
G Rashon Burno, 5-7, So.
A true point guard, Burno is the Blue Demons' best ball-handler and has great
G Kerry Hartfield, 6-1, Sr.
A natural off guard, Hartfield had to run the point last season and led the
team in assists (96) and three-pointers (52).
| Top guy off the bench |
F Ayinde Avery, 6-7, Sr.
Will see more quality minutes because Lance Williams broke his foot in the
preseason and isn't due back until December.
| Key Newcomer |
G Paul McPherson, 6-4, Jr.
Averaged 21 points, nine rebounds, four assists and three blocks last season
at Kennedy-King Junior College in Chicago.
| Key Games |
Dec. 4, at Duke, Most of the crew that embarrassed the Demons last year are in the NBA now.
Jan. 26, vs. Florida, One of two games for DePaul in the United Center.
| Outlook |
After having a winning season for the first time since 1994-95 and
winning the most games (18) since 1991-92, expectations are soaring at
DePaul. With 81.5 percent of their scoring and 87.3 percent of their
rebounding back -- including the dynamic Richardson -- and the addition of a
Top 20 recruiting class, the Demons should reach the NCAA Tournament for the
first time since 1992.
