DePaul 2016 schedule news: Blue Demons playing in Las Vegas Classic in December

The DePaul Blue Demons better get their Christmas shopping done early this year.

The school announced they'll be playing in the Las Vegas Classic on December 22-23rd at the Orleans Arena on the Las Vegas Strip.

DePaul will be joined in Vegas by USC, Wyoming, and Missouri State. Four other teams will partake in the tournament as well, and the Blue Demons will host two of the four teams which will be announced at a later date.

DePaul's last December tournament was the 2014 Diamond Head Classic. It didn't go so well for the Blue Demons, as they went 0-3.

If nothing else, taking your tournament in December instead of November is a nice escape from the Chicago winter.
