Last season was my first full season of covering the DePaul Blue Demons women's basketball team and what a season it was. I saw them win the Big East tournament at Wintrust Arena and I celebrated with the team and the fans on the court after the big win.
One of the big factors all season was the play of freshman Lexi Held. She came into DePaul after being named Northern Kentucky Coaches Association Player of the Year for her senior year in high school. She averaged 8.3 points per game and 1.3 rebounds, while also having 52 assists, 3 blocks and 20 steals. She had a season high 28 points twice.
She was a real joy to watch, as she gained experience and poise. I predict big things for Lexi and I will be there watching and reporting.
The near future is bright for the Blue Demons. As reigning Big East champs, everyone is gunning for them, but the titles speak volumes on their ability.
Once again, I will be covering the team. I look forward to a lot of fun and will be reporting all here, on Patch.com and online for Global Traveler.
Go to DePaulBlueDemons.com for all of the info on the team. Also, be sure to follow Lexi at @LexiHeld on Instagram.
