    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Kevin Coble scored a season-high 25 points and Craig Moore added 14 points to lead Northwestern to a 63-36 victory over DePaul on Saturday.

    Northwestern (6-1) scored the game's first seven points and never saw its second-half lead dip below 13 points. The Wildcats rolled to a 31-15 halftime advantage.

    A foot injury sidelined Blue Demons starting center Mac Koshwal, who was a leading rebounder and scorer. He was replaced by Matilja Poscic, one of three freshman in the Blue Demon's starting lineup. Northwestern also started a pair of freshmen.

    Dar Tucker had 17 points for DePaul (4-2), which suffered its second straight defeat. Poscic had eight points and fouled out.

    The Wildcats are on a three-game winning streak. They shot 46.6 percent compared with 24.6 percent for the Blue Demons.
