DePaul stuns Xavier in first round of Big East Tourney

NEW YORK (AP) DePaul is heading to the quarterfinals of the Big East Conference Tournament for the first time in six years with a win not many anticipated.

Paul Reed had 23 points and 12 rebounds and the lowly Blue Demons won their first conference tournament game since 2014 with a come-from-behind 71-67 over seventh-seeded Xavier in a first-round game on Tuesday night.

"We just came out and stuck with the plan, the game plan," said guard Charlie Moore, who added 18 points and nine assists for 10th-seeded DePaul (16-16). "Came out, gave energy. Tried to limit their rebound, offensive rebound attempts, just play defense as a team. I thought we did a great job of that tonight."
