UIC Flames vs DePaul Blue Demons

Where: Wintrust Arena, Chicago, IL

When: Saturday, December 14, 2:00 PM. ET.

The DePaul Blue Demons will be trying to bounce back from their loss to Buffalo when they take on the UIC Flames on Saturday afternoon.

Flames Going For Third Consecutive Win

The Flames have played well since they snapped their second three-game losing streak of the season, winning their last two games. They will try to make it three wins in a row and snap their two-game losing streak to DePaul when they face the Blue Demons on Saturday.

UIC has struggled offensively this season, averaging 65 points per game. The team is shooting 40 percent from the field and 32 percent from three-point range. They finished with 62 points in their last game and will need to play better if they want to defeat the Blue Demons.

Blue Demons Going For 10th Win In 11 Games

The Blue Demons had their nine-game winning streak snapped by Buffalo in their last game thanks to a cold shooting night by the team. They will try to bounce back from the loss and pick up their 10th win in their last 11 games when they face the Flames on Saturday.

DePaul has played well offensively, averaging 76.1 points per game. The team is shooting 47 percent from the field and 35 percent from three-point range. They were held to 69 points in their last game after shooting 41 percent from the field and being outrebounded by 13.

Jalen Coleman-Lands led the way for the Blue Demons with 17 points, four rebounds, and three steals. Paul Reed finished with 15 points, 18 rebounds, four steals, and five blocks, while Romeo Weems added 13 points and three rebounds for the Blue Demons.
