ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Cully Payne scored 24 points to lead Loyola of Chicago to a 69-61 victory over crosstown rival DePaul on Saturday.

Christian Thomas added 12 points and 10 rebounds for Loyola (9-3) in the Ramblers' first victory over DePaul since 1989, and only the second for Loyola on DePaul's home court in 21 meetings.

The Ramblers, who had lost 11 straight to DePaul in the series, won their third straight game and seventh in the last eight, while stopping DePaul's seven-game winning streak. The Blue Demons dropped to 9-4.

After forcing seven ties in the first half, the Ramblers took the lead for the first time on Payne's 3-point shot with 17:15 left. After a pair of lead changes, the Ramblers went on a 12-1 run highlighted by 3-pointers by Payne and Jordan Hicks.

Brandon Young led DePaul with 18 points. Worrell Clahar added 10 for the Blue Demons.
