Associated Press

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) -- Cleveland Melvin scored 23 points and had
seven rebounds to lead DePaul to a 93-81 win over Oregon State
on Sunday.

DePaul (4-3) bounced back after back-to-back blowout losses to
Wichita State and Texas in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in
Kansas City.

Brandon Young added 21 points, five assists and five rebounds
and freshman Billy Garrett Jr. had 15 points and 10 assists for
the Blue Demons.

Devon Collier scored a career-high 32 points for Oregon State
(3-2), who trailed by double digits for most of the second half.

Leading 45-42 early in the second half, DePaul went on an 11-4
run. Garrett scored on a runner and Tommy Hamilton IV made a
3-pointer to increase the DePaul lead to 57-45.
