Young helps DePaul rally past Chicago State 74-64By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO, Associated Press Wednesday, Dec 5, 2012
On the day Chicago State announced it will join the Western Athletic Conference in 2013, the Cougars nearly delivered an upset win against their crosstown foe. Chicago State (2-8) shot 53 percent in the first half, including 4 of 8 on 3-point attempts, to help build a 44-30 halftime lead.
DePaul (5-3) couldn’t have played much worse in the first half. The Blue Demons committed 12 turnovers—finishing with 21 for the game—and shot only 30 percent from the field.
Chicago State went cold and put up an ugly shooting performance in the second half. The Cougars went 5 of 26 from the field and did not make a shot until Matt Ross’ layup with 11:39 remaining.
