Projecting more offensive efficiency out of the DePaul Blue Demons this season with the return of point guard Devin Gage. Gage played in only eight games last season which put a lot of pressure on Eli Cain and Max Strus. Cain was forced to orchestrate the offense and his shooting percentages suffered mightily compared to his sophomore season when Billy Garrett ran the show. And when teams started keying in on Strus, his shooting went downhill as well. So far so good as Cain and Strus shot a combined 16-of-35 from deep during DePaul’s two wins to open the year. Penn State has a different look following the departure of Tony Carr (Italy). Carr was a high volume shooter and scorers with the offense specifically catered towards getting him the ball. This year’s squad should be far more balanced; seven double-digit scorers through the first two games. I also like what I’ve seen out of freshmen Myles Dread and Rasir Bolton. The duo has combined for 62 points. Both teams having speedy point guards and a desire to get out in transition. Expect plenty of possessions and enough points to get this one over the total.
