MEN’S HOOPS - 1980For the first time in program history, DePaul played a home game outside the Chicago city limits at the Rosemont Hori-zon, which still serves as the program’s home-court (Allstate Arena). The Blue Demon’s featured two All-Ameri-cans in Mark Aguirre and Clyde Bradshaw and defeated the John Stockton-led Gonzaga team, 74-56, on this historic night. Bradshaw career was highlighted by an outstanding 106-13 record (89%). Bradshaw scored 1,102 points in his career and is second all-time with 606 assists.

WOMEN’S HOOPS - 2002Jamie Smith’s three-point play with 13 seconds left was the deciding factor on December 1 in DePaul’s 67-62 win over Toledo. Lenae Williams led all scorers with 26 points while grabbing seven rebounds with four steals. With the win, the Blue Demons improve to 5-2 record. In the first half, DePaul led throughout and built a seven-point advantage before going to the lockeroom ahead, 33-29. Smith scored seven points with a game-high 11 rebounds and three blocked shots. Yolanda Lewis, who missed the last two games, chipped in nine points and Sarah Kustok added seven points, five rebounds and a pair of steals.

NAME: Mfon UdokaWNBA CAREER: 1998-99, 2003-04PLAYER STATS: Click Here

How did playing at DePaul Prepare you for the NBA?I played for a great coach who challenged me and helped me solidify and maximize my skills as an undersized, unathletic post player. I was fortunate to play with three women who would also play in the WNBA, so I learned that I would not always be the star or go-to player, and that toughness and rebounding is as valuable as scoring. What was your greatest memory as a professional player?Making the Houston Comets as a free agent in and starting my first game for them in 2003. It was a long road back from being released in 1998 from the Detroit Shock. I recovered from an ACL injury, worked regular jobs, played in minor leagues and then traveled the world and played in less than ideal situations at times. It was a grind and finally making a roster five years later was another goal I was fortunate to accomplish. What was your greatest DePaul memory?Beating No. 3 Louisiana Tech in Alumni Hall. It was the biggest win in program history at the time. Who was the toughest player to guard?LaTasha Byears at DePaul and Tina Thompson- both in practice. What were your feelings before your first game?I was a little nervous but became a fan favorite and “enforcer” in the games that I played in. I began the year playing a lot due to injuries, but when those players became healthy I didn’t play much after that. I did a lot of extra work on the court and in the weight room, which prepared me to lead Nigeria to its first-ever African championship/Olympic berth later that year.
