Things didn't look good for DePaul last month. They were 7-6 overall and dropped their first two conference games. But they turned things around and now stand at 15-7, 8-3.
More importantly, Joe Lunardi, the expert bracketologist, projects them as a tourney team. According to Lunardi, they just need to beat Louisville (on the road) or Cincinnatti (at home) to make a strong case for the tournament.
I'm still not convinced. The only impressive win DePaul has is over Memphis, and that is when Memphis was still working out some problems. But if Joe Lunardi says that DePaul has a good chance of making the tourney, you better believe it's true.
