History

The DePaul women’s basketball team began competing in the IAIAW in 1974-1975 under coach Debbie Miller and had their first winning season two seasons later, obtaining an 11-10 record under current coach Doug Bruno.[3]

DePaul is one of the seven core schools that left the original Big East Conference in 2013 to form the current Big East Conference. Before joining the original Big East in 2005, the Blue Demons previously competed in Conference USA, the Great Midwest Conference, and the North Star Conference.[3]
