    ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) -- Quemont Greer scored 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds Sunday to lead DePaul to a 73-60 win over Old Dominion.

    Drake Diener had 16 points for DePaul (8-3) and Sammy Mejia returned from a one-game absence to score 11 for the Blue Demons in their third straight.

    Arnaud Dahi led Old Dominion with 19 points and Valdas Vasylius added 18 as the Monarchs saw their seven-game winning streak end.

    Mejia announced on Dec. 30 that he would take a leave of absence for personal reasons and rejoined the team Sunday, giving the Blue Demons a spark off the bench.

    He entered the game with 9:31 remaining in the first half and his basket with 33 seconds left gave DePaul a 30-29 lead at the break. The Blue Demons came out firing in the second half, going on a 13-2 run started by Diener hitting two consecutive 3-point baskets. Marlon Brumfield's jump shot with 3:10 left capped a 12-4 run to put DePaul up 67-50 and the game out of Old Dominion's reach.

    The Monarchs struggled to find any offensive rhythm, shooting 9 for 25 in the second half and just 38.5 percent overall.

    DePaul shot 45 percent overall and was 14 for 20 from the free throw line in the second half. Diener was 3 for 4 from the line, missing his first free throw after connecting on 30 straight dating back to last March.
