NCAA Basketball 2011: DePaul Outlasts Mississippi Valley State

Jeremiah Kelly made six three-pointers to lift DePaul past Mississippi Valley State on Monday.

Jeremiah Kelly scored only 11 points in DePaul's 91-point offensive outburst of a season opener last week, but the senior guard didn't waste any time improving his scoring average in a 80-70 Blue Demons victory over Mississippi Valley State on Monday night. Kelly hit six three-pointers and scored 24 points to pace the DePaul offense. 

From the AP:

Kelly hit five 3-pointers during a 3:30 span in the first half, part of a 25-12 run that opened a 46-34 halftime lead for the host Blue Demons (2-0).

Sophomore guard Brandon Young added 19 points and five assists, while junior Cleveland Melvin chipped in 16 points and eight rebounds. Freshman Charles McKinney added 10 points off the bench in the win.

Five Mississippi Valley State players finished in double-figures. Paul Crosby led the Delta Devils with 13 points.

Next up for DePaul is a November 24 meeting with Minnesota and senior forward Trevor Mbakwe.
