DePaul Headed To NCAA Women’s Tournament For 17th Year In A Row

With the arrival of spring comes sunshine, greenery and the kickoff to March Madness. And this year, one competitor to watch is DePaul University’s women’s basketball team.

They recently won their fourth BIG EAST tournament title and earned a bid to the NCAA Basketball Tournament as the No. 6 seed in the Chicago region. This is their 17th consecutive year playing in the women’s tournament, making them one of five teams in the country to pull off that long a streak.

WBEZ sports contributor Cheryl Raye-Stout joins Morning Shift to talk about the team’s success and her predictions for March Madness.
