The Battle for the DePaul BET Game

There was talk on Twitter about calling the opening 12 p.m. game of the Big East Tournament "The DePaul Game."

Fitting title. Always funny, yet somewhat sad to see DePaul battle and eventually lose every opening Tuesday. Despite being disappointing, it is a game named after DePaul, which has to be somewhat of an honor for the program.

But in a few years, DePaul may have some serious competition for "The DePaul Game."

Let's take a look at what the battle between DePaul, Houston and Southern Methodist would look like if it were to take place this year.
Beware. These statistics are incredibly disgusting.

Offensive Efficiency:
Houston: 101th in the country. Not too bad.
Southern Methodist: 250th. Behind schools like Jacksonville, Jacksonville St., NJIT (yes, NJIT), Stetson, IUPU - Ft. Wayne Mastadons (an actual team) and Lipscomb just to name a few.
DePaul: 139th.

Looks like SMU has an early edge.

Defensive Efficiency:
Houston: 253rd
Southern Methodist: 159th
DePaul- 277th


Massey Rankings - Let's take a look at the comprehensive Massey rankings to see where the teams stack up overall.
Houston: 170th
Southern Methodist: 192nd
DePaul: 163rd

SMU takes home 2 of the 3 categories, and look like early favorites.

But a lot can get worse between 2012 and 2015. Pin It Now!
