ROSEMONT, Ill. -Wilson Chandler scored a season-high 25 points and blocked the potential game-winning shot in the closing seconds as DePaul beat Notre Dame 67-66 Thursday night.
Chandler's block came after he put the Blue Demons ahead with a breakaway dunk.
Draelon Burns set that up when he stripped the Fighting Irish's Colin Falls near midcourt. He retrieved the ball near the sideline and found an open Chandler, who made it 67-66 with 18 seconds left.
After a timeout, Notre Dame's Tory Jackson got cut off in the lane and dribbled to the right corner. Luke Zeller put up an off-balance 3-pointer from the wing with about four seconds left, and Chandler blocked Rob Kurz's put-back to preserve the victory.
It was another difficult loss for the Irish, who dropped out of the top 25 after falling 69-66 at South Florida on Saturday.
Chandler was 10-of-19 from the field, grabbed a season-high 14 rebounds and blocked three shots. Burns scored 11, and Marcus Heard added 10 for DePaul (14-11, 5-6 Big East).
