Oliver Purnell has been around coaching long enough to know that plays drawn up during timeouts normally don’t go as planned. But Purnell’s drawn-up play went as planned on Friday, and Billy Garrett Jr. scored the game-winning basket as time expired and DePaul beat Northwestern 57-56. Sandi Marcius finished with 12 points and Cleveland Melvin added 11 for DePaul (8-5). Leading 52-51, Tommy Hamilton IV found Marcius, who was fouled on a dunk and made a free throw to complete a three-point play with 35.2 seconds left, to put DePaul up 55-51.
