ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Cleveland Melvin scored 23 points and had seven rebounds to lead DePaul to a 93-81 win over Oregon State on Sunday.

DePaul (4-3) bounced back after back-to-back blowout losses to Wichita State and Texas in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City.

Brandon Young added 21 points, five assists and five rebounds and freshman Billy Garrett Jr. had 15 points and 10 assists for the Blue Demons.

Devon Collier scored a career-high 32 points for Oregon State (3-2), who trailed by double digits for most of the second half.

Leading 45-42 early in the second half, DePaul went on an 11-4 run. Garrett scored on a runner and Tommy Hamilton IV made a 3-pointer to increase the DePaul lead to 57-45.

Melvin hit a 3-pointer and Durrell McDonald scored on a layup as the Blue Demons extended their lead to 19 with 7:18 left in the game.

Garrett connected with Cleveland Melvin for an alley-oop dunk to give DePaul a 35-23 lead, but Oregon State quickly cut the deficit. Collier had a three-point play followed by a putback and Nelson made a 3-pointer to get the Beavers within two. DePaul led 43-39 at the half behind Young's 11 first half points. Collier scored 22 points in the half for Oregon State on 8-of-10 shooting.

Roberto Nelson, who came into the game averaging 27 points, didn't score until 9:07 left in the first half and finished with 19. He was closely guarded by Young for most of the game.

DePaul got a scare when it appeared Young injured his ankle midway through the second half. He had to be helped off the court, but returned to the game with 6 minutes left. He then came down hard on his knee after a layup with 3:08 left.

It was a homecoming for Oregon State head coach and Chicago native Craig Robinson, who is the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama. He grew up on the South Side and was also an assistant at Northwestern.

Sandi Marcius scored a career-high 15 points for DePaul and Hamilton finished with 14.
