DePaul
1998-99 record
18-13 overall, 10-6 C-USA (lost to California in NIT second round)
Coach
Pat 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 quickness.

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.
