Charlie Moore has been a revelation, the junior frontcourt duo of Butz/Reed are great and they have long-term stability with two talented freshmen with Weems/Jacobs. A very nice well-rounded roster.

And with only one senior within their top eight players, this team could look even better next year.

I always want all of our old friends to succeed. I know its been talked about on here before, but not many of Calhoun’s former assistants (not including Ollie) have gone on to have success as head coaches at other schools. Leitao is by far the most successful one.

Hobbs had a pretty good run at GW

Like DL but he has NCAA problems. He was suspended and the team is on probation for the next 3 years.

This is really the first time he's had all his recruits. I like him as a person but wasn't convinced he could coach. When he took over DePaul those first years, the majority were not players he recruited. Same at UVA. I hope he's successful with this team and in Big East. Maybe he'll start to keep some of that Chi-town talent

Showing my age a bit here but does anyone else remember when DePaul had a great program that had games on NBC most Saturdays? Ray Meyer had most of the success, then followed by his son Joey. Along with UConn, that was my favorite team, good to see DL has the school headed in the right direction again.

I agree, Howie is a good coach, but the expectations are low at CCSU as far as national success. Leitao took Depaul and Virginia to the NCAA Tournament, and from the way things look, he has a good shot at taking Depaul back there in his second stint.

Depaul is now 8-0 with wins against BC, Iowa, and Minnesota. Thinking they may finally be turning the corner. Their next opponent is Texas Tech coming off a loss.
They are DePaul and he is Dave Leitao.

This will end the way you think it will.

I hope Bouknight drops 35 or 40 on you. AAC talent? Please. Your head coach has won 1 NCAA tournament game in 13 seasons. Your program is mediocre at best. .

Why does Watson come off the bench?
