Despite their big upset over Duke, this won’t be the year for the Red Storm to regain past glory, but first-year head coach Steve Lavin (former UCLA coach and ESPN analyst) philosophized when he got the job last March, “You bring all that with you to enhance your ability to coach and run a successful program.” Tonight, the Red Storm hosts a former great basketball power, the DePaul University Blue Demons. Watch for hometown guard Dwight Hardy, who scored a career-high 32 points against UCLA, and guard/forward D.J. Kennedy, who had a career-high six steals in the same game. Tickets start at $5 on StubHub—can’t beat that for an evening of major college hoops!
