With the team going through shootaround right now at Allstate Arena, here's a few notes, links and video for tonight's game against Gardner-Webb.

Three things to keep an eye on...
1. Gardner-Webb is coming off a home loss Wednesday night against Lipscomb. The Runnin' Bulldogs caught an early flight to Chicago this morning and play tonight at Allstate Arena.
2. In DePaul's last two regular-season games the Blue Demons have outscored opponents by a combined 60 points. The Blue Demons defeated Seton Hall by 28 points in the last regular-season game of the 2011-12 season and opened the 2012-13 campaign last Friday with a 32-point win over UC Riverside. In between those two wins was a 14-point loss to Connecticut in the BIG EAST Tournament.
3. The Cancun Challenge features three games tonight with Gardner-Webb at DePaul, Howard at Iowa and Western Carolina at Wichita State.
