CHICAGO (AP) - Freshman Tommy Hamilton IV scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in his college debut to help the DePaul Blue Demons to a 96-58 victory over Grambling State in their season opener at McGrath-Phillips Arena on Saturday.

Senior Cleveland Melvin added a team-high 17 points for the Blue Demons, knocking down all five of his 3-point attempts.

DePaul (1-0) started the second half on a 13-2 run and maintained a healthy lead throughout to lock up its sixth consecutive season-opening victory.

The Tigers haven't won since March 3, 2012, a 75-72 OT win against Alabama A&M.
