Two days later, coach Doug Bruno and his team welcome Xavier to the home of DePaul basketball.

The Blue Demons return to league action on Dec. 19 with a roads trip to Queens, N.Y. and a showdown with St. John’s. The final BIG EAST game in December is a much-anticipated matchup against powerful Connecticut which could enter the 2021-22 season ranked No. 1 in the country. It will be televised on SNY.

Bruno & Co. start out the New Year with a Jan. 7 game at Providence followed by a road game against longtime rival Marquette on Jan. 12 in Milwaukee.

DePaul plays consecutive road games Jan. 21 and 23 beginning with a stop in Indianapolis to take on Butler in the historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, where some of the scenes from the popular basketball movie “Hoosiers” were filmed.
