The DePaul Blue Demons have a long winning tradition in college basketball. Legendary coach Ray Meyer led DePaul to two Final Four appearances, one in 1943 and one in 1979. DePaul also went to the Elite Eight in 1978. The Blue Demons have gone to the Elite Eight 10 times, the most recent in 1987.
Some of the great players to play for DePaul include George Mikan, Mark Aguirre, Terry Cummings, Dave Corzine, Bill Robinzine, Rod Strickland, Quentin Richardson and many more.
The Blue Demons play their home games at AllState Arena, which opened in 1980, and seats 17,500 fans. The Arena is also used for Arena Football (Rush), hockey (Wolves) and WNBA basketball (Sky). So this arena is a big league venue with plush seating, video boards, and great concessions. You can enjoy a great college basketball game while wolfing down pizza, nachos, hot dogs, Polish sausages, soft pretzels and more.
DePaul plays in the Big East, one of college basketball’s best conferences. Home games at the AllState Arena this season will include Chicago State, Northwestern, George Washington, Georgetown, Butler, Creighton, Xavier, Providence and more.
