NIT Action Coming to Lincoln Park Tonight

By Todd McClamroch in News on Mar 14, 2007 1:30PM

The DePaul Blue Demons will tip off against the Hofstra Pride tomorrow night in the 2007 MasterCard National Invitational Tournament (NIT). This will be the Blue Demons’ 16th appearance in the tournament; they won the tournament in 1945 but have failed to make it to the final four since 1983.

Fans need not worry about finding their way out to the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, as the game will be hosted on DePaul's campus in Lincoln Park at McGrath Arena. Reserved tickets are available through Ticketmaster for $20.00, and students get in fee.

If the Blue Demons (18-13) can defeat The Pride (22-9) they would take on the winner of the Kansas State (22-10) versus Vermont (25-6) game.
