Jalen Coleman-Landis scored 18 points, hit a 3-pointer to send the game into overtime and another for the game-winner in the extra period as DePaul outlasted visiting Texas Tech 65-60 on Wednesday in a Big East-Big 12 Battle game in Chicago.
DePaul improved to 9-0 for the first time since the start of the 1986-87 season, and the Blue Demons have won nine straight for the first time since the 1993-94 campaign. The 1986-87 squad opened the schedule with 16 consecutive victories.
The Red Raiders led by 50-44 after Terrence Shannon Jr.'s 3-pointer with 3:19 to play in regulation, but DePaul kept coming, drawing within 52-50 points on a put-back dunk by Jaylen Butz with 21 seconds remaining.
After a timeout and a DePaul foul, Davide Moretti hit one of two free throws to push the lead to three points.
Coleman-Landis then canned a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left to send the game into overtime at 53-53.
The teams went back and forth in the final two minutes of overtime, with Coleman-Landis's 3-pointer with 55 seconds to play giving the Blue Demons a 61-60 lead.
Paul Reed added 18 points for DePaul, and Butz scored 17.
Shannon scored 24 points, 18 of them after halftime, for Texas Tech (5-3). Kyler Edwards had 12 points, and Moretti added 10 before fouling out late in overtime.
Texas Tech played its second straight game without its leading scorer, freshman Jahmi'us Ramsey, who is nursing a hamstring injury.
Defense ruled the first half, which ended with Texas Tech up 26-23 and with both teams shooting just 36 percent and struggling from beyond the arc. The Red Raiders made just three of their 10 3-point shots and DePaul was just 2 of 10 from long distance.
The Blue Demons' got nine points each in the half from Butz and Reed while Texas Tech got six points from both Shannon and Avery Benson.
