This Day in Blue Demon Hoops History - Feb. 25

February 25

Men’s Basketball
1995 - TK for Four -  Down by three points with 11.4 seconds remaining, Tom Kleinschmidt is fouled as he drills a three-point goal. Kleinschmidt, who finishes with 30 points, converts the four-point play and leads DePaul to an 82-81 win for the ages over Louisville on national television.

Women’s Basketball
1996 - DePaul women's basketball has played on February 25 nine times in school history, winning eight of the match-ups. The 1996 rivalry-game against Marquette proved to be one for the ages as the Blue Demons smashed their rival to the north, 96-53, in the biggest margin of victory in that historic series.
