The last time the Blue Demons reached the NCAA tournament in 2004, Dave Leitao was the coach. It was a big reason the program brought him back. But there have been few encouraging results this time around. Everyone knew this would be a massive, time-consuming rebuild — DePaul’s 11-win season in 2017-18, sadly, was progress — and possible program-changing recruits are on the horizon in four-star forward Romeo Weems and four-star guard Markese Jacobs of Uplift. But Leitao has had misses in recruiting, too, which isn’t unique for DePaul coaches this century.
