Chicago State vs. DePaul: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

The Blue Demons are back at home after a long lay-off.

Patrick Gorski-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday afternoon marks a big day for the Rosemont Horizon.

The Blue Demons will take on the Chicago State Cougars in their first game at the Horizon this season.

In addition, it's the 500th Blue Demons game in Rosemont Horizon history.

The Blue Demons come into the game at 3-3, while the Cougars come in at 3-5. The Cougars are also on a four-game losing streak.

In honor of the Blue Demons playing their first game of the year at the Horizon, here's a video of another famous return there.

Series History

The Blue Demons and Cougars have played 13 times, and the Blue Demons have won all 13 times.

With a win on Saturday, they'll improve to 14-0 all time against Chicago State.

This wouldn't be the first time someone improved to 14-0 at the Rosemont Horizon.

Three things to watch

1. Chicago Made Garrett

Billy Garrett, Jr. has continued to develop into a very good player for the Blue Demons. His points per game, assists per game, rebounds per game, and free throw percentage are all up from last season.

At the same time, his turnovers per game and fouls per game are down.

His field goal percentage is also a bit down, but he should be able to remedy that against a Chicago State team who are 322nd out of 351 teams at defending two-point shots.

2. No Mercy

The Blue Demons would get back over .500 with a victory on Saturday. They can't afford to show the Cougars, who are 341st in the nation in Adjusted Offense, any mercy.

The Cougars also turn the ball over a ton. 22.3 times per 100 possessions. For a Blue Demons team who have struggled at getting steals this season, they should be able to attack and force some steals.

3. Payback

In DePaul's victory over Chicago State last season, Myke Henry had only 12 points, one of his lowest point totals in nonconference play.

Chicago State is slightly worse (281/351) on defense this season than they were last season (250/351), so Henry should definitely be looking for payback Saturday afternoon.

The Cougars will likely be looking for payback of their own, as Tommy Hamilton was 7-7 with 22 points against them last season.
