DePaul vs. Stanford 2015: Time, TV schedule, live stream and 3 things to know

The Blue Demons head west to meet a struggling Pac-12 team.

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

The DePaul Blue Demons will get a nice reprieve from the Chicago weather as they head to Palo Alto to take on the Stanford Cardinal.

DePaul comes into the game at 5-4. They took a loss to Arkansas-Little Rock their last time out, but had won four in a row before that.

Stanford, on the other hand, comes into this contest at 4-3. They've won two in a row after losing three straight, including one to Villanova.

Three things to watch

1. Rematch

Last season, DePaul had one of their unlikeliest wins of the season when Stanford came to the Rosemont Horizon, and the Blue Demons defeated them by 15 points.

Myke Henry set his career high in scoring with 29 points against Stanford in that game, and he'll look to break the 20-point mark for the first time this season in Tuesday night's game.

Stanford is also a much different team from last season, as Stefan Nastic, Chasson Randle, and Anthony Brown, their three leading scorers from last year, have all graduated.

2. Eli Cain's emergence

During DePaul's three-game losing streak at Penn State and in the Virgin Islands, Myke Henry and Billy Garrett accounted for nearly 40% of DePaul's scoring.

The Blue Demons desperately needed someone to step up and help those two out.

Enter Eli Cain.

Cain, a freshman from New Jersey's St. Benedict's Prep, has scored 10+ points in each of the previous four games for DePaul, with the high mark being a 20 point performance against Chicago State.

Cain was last week's BIG EAST Freshman of the Week as a result, and he'll look to continue his strong start to the season.

3. Free Throws

Stanford is one of the worst free throw shooting teams in college basketball right now.

The Cardinal come into the game shooting 63.3%, which is 309th in the country.

Given how many fouls DePaul commits, as you can see here in FC/40, the Blue Demons might actually benefit from Stanford's poor shooting from the charity stripe.
