The curtain goes up on the Johnnies at the Garden in Big East play. This year, even DePaul gets to play in The World’s Most Famous Arena (more famous than Wembley? Camp Nou? Do outdoor arenas even count?).
With both teams winless in Big East play but better than preseason predictions would have guessed, expect a lot of desperate energy. Which team can channel than into a disruptive attack?
