The DePaul Blue Demons start their season on November 14th against Chicago State. When they do, they’ll do so with low expectations from coaches around the Big East.
The Blue Demons were picked to finish last in the Big East in the recently released preseason coaches poll. Coming off of a 1-17 Big East record and a 8-23 overall record that included a 13-game losing streak to end the year, new head coach Oliver Purnell has a long road in front of him.
Pittsburgh was chosen to win the Big East, while Notre Dame was picked to finish 7th and Marquette to finish 8th.
