Per Jon Rothstein of FRS Sports Network, Boston College and DePaul have agreed to a home and home series for the next two men’s basketball seasons. DePaul will host the initial matchup at Windtrust Arena in Chicago on December 22, 2019. BC will host the Blue Demons in Chestnut Hill on a date to be determined during the 2019-2020 season.
DePaul, who joined the Big East shortly before BC departed for the ACC, has not reached the NCAA Tournament since 2004. They finished this season last in the Big East with a record of 11-20. They faced common opponents of the Eagles including Providence (splitting a two-game series) and Notre Dame (losing early in the season). The squad recently secured four-star forward recruit Romeo Weems for this year’s freshman class. KenPom rated DePaul 99th last season, about midway between Wake Forest and Georgia Tech for comparison’s sake. This should be a fun, winnable matchup against a former Big East foe.
