ROSEMONT, Ill. — Aaron Falzon hit two three pointers in overtime to help Northwestern to a comeback win over DePaul 78-70 on Saturday.
Tre Demps had 18 points, after scoring just two in the first half, to lead the Wildcats (10-1).
Demps missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have won the game in regulation for Northwestern, which had trailed most of the second half. The Wildcats dominated the overtime period, however, led by Falzon, whose overtime points were his only six of the game.
It was the seventh straight win for Northwestern.
Myke Henry had a game-high 24 points and eight rebounds for DePaul (5-6).
Sanjay Lumpkin and Alex Olah each contributed 14 points for Northwestern, and Bryant McIntosh added 13. Lumpkin, Olah and Demps all also had 7 rebounds.
Aaron Simpson added 13 points and eight rebounds for DePaul.
DePaul's leading scorer on the season, Billy Garrett, was held to seven points after getting in early foul trouble.
