    CHICAGO -- Freshman Brittany Hrynko scored a career-high 25 points and DePaul (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 23 AP) beat Arizona State 73-55 on Friday night.

    Katherine Harry and Jasmine Penny had 14 points apiece for the Blue Demons (10-2), who have won consecutive games since their 84-61 loss to Tennessee.

    DePaul opened the game with a 9-0 run while Arizona State missed its first eight shots. Hrynko had 16 points in the first half as DePaul carried a 41-26 lead into the break.

    Janae Fulcher scored 16 for the Sun Devils (7-2), and Kali Bennett finished with nine points.

    Arizona State made a late run, closing to 66-55 on Promise Amukamara's baseline 3-pointer with 1:40 to play. But the rally fizzled from there.

    DePaul was without forward Keisha Hampton, who was sidelined with an unspecified injury. She was in uniform but did not play, ending a run of 113 consecutive starts.

    Anna Martin had nine points and a season-high eight assists for the Blue Demons, who avenged a 79-66 loss in Tempe last season.

    Arizona State committed 20 turnovers, but outrebounded DePaul 42-30.
