DePaul beats Maryland-Baltimore County 69-61

Posted: Updated:

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) - Cleveland Melvin scored 24 points and DePaul defeated Maryland-Baltimore County 69-61 Saturday to extend its winning streak to seven games.

Melvin, a Baltimore native, reached double digits in scoring for the 26th consecutive game. He added eight rebounds.

The winning streak marks the longest for DePaul (9-3) since the Blue Demons won nine straight during the 1993-94 season.

For much of the second half, DePaul held a double-digit lead until six straight points by the Retrievers (2-10) cut the lead to four with 11 minutes to play. DePaul's Moses Morgan then hit a jumper in the lane and added a free throw for a 3-point play.

Jamee Crockett stole the ball and Brandon Young made two free throws, and Young found Melvin for an alley-oop to stretch the lead back to 11.

Aaron Morgan led UMBC with 15 points.
