On Tuesday evening, the DePaul Blue Demons and the UConn Huskies will square off during a Big East contest at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Connecticut. UConn has prevailed in 4 of its past 5 matches, while DePaul has dropped 2 of the previous 3.
UConn has regained its status as an unstoppable force and hasn’t shown signs of having a hangover from the National Championship. With an average of 16.2 points per match, Tristen Newton is leading the Huskies’ offensive attack as they have gotten out to a fast start to the campaign (11-2). Dan Hurley’s team has benefited greatly from the addition of Cam Spencer, a transfer from Rutgers who ranks as one of the finest pure shooters in NCAA basketball with a championship background. This season, Spencer has averaged 14.8 points per contest and is shooting nearly 45% from outside the arc. Despite having one of the top offenses in the nation, UConn plays at a very slow tempo, they come in at 331st in the nation thanks to an adjusted tempo rating of 65.8.
The DePaul Blue Demons almost never have a great start and are usually guaranteed a spot in the Big East Conference’s bottom half. That tale continues as 2024 approaches, as they approach this contest with a 3-9 record. The Blue Demons’ road through the Big East isn’t getting any simpler, but this game will be a crucial indicator for a club that hasn’t yet secured its season-defining victory. On Tuesday, there will be a tremendous opportunity. DePaul needs this game. He is rated 238th in the nation based on an adjusted efficiency ratio of -4.86. With an efficiency rating of 101.4 on offense, the Blue Demons are rated 233rd in all of NCAA basketball. On defense, they are ranked 217th with an efficiency rating of 106.2.
