Donnavan Kirk tied a career high with 14 points and Jamee Crockett added 13 points and six rebounds to lead DePaul to an 84-50 rout of Milwaukee on Sunday night.

DePaul (6-3) used an early 14-0 run to jump out to a 21-8 lead. Moses Morgan made two 3-pointers and made a nice pass to Cleveland Melvin for an alley-oop dunk during the span for the Blue Demons.

Brandon Young scored 13 points and Melvin finished with 11 points and three blocks in a game where DePaul led by as many as 41. The Panthers beat the Blue Demons last season.

DePaul held Milwaukee's leading scorer Jordan Aaron to six points on 2-for-11 shooting. Paris Gulley led Milwaukee (3-7) with 14 points.

The Blue Demons held Milwaukee to 25.8 percent shooting and forced 17 turnovers.
