    DEKALB, Ill. -- Felicia Chester scored 16 points to lead five players in double figures, and DePaul (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 15 AP) defeated Northern Illinois 78-67 on Saturday.

    The Blue Demons (5-1) beat the Huskies for the 16th straight time.

    DePaul trailed 13-2 in the early going, but used 12 first-half turnovers by Northern Illinois to take a 35-33 lead by halftime. DePaul dominated most of the second half and led by as many as 13 down the stretch.

    Marke Freeman led the Huskies (3-3) with 26 points, while Kylie York added 16.

    Sam Quigley and freshman Anna Martin each had 14 points for DePaul, which rebounded from a loss at Northwestern on Tuesday. The Blue Demons also lost leading scorer Deirdre Noughton for the season with a torn ACL during that game.
