CHICAGO (AP) - Felicia Chester scored 20 points, including the winning layup with 5 seconds left, to lift No. 12 DePaul to a 70-69 victory over No. 7 Notre Dame on Monday night.

Keisha Hampton scored 24 points to lead the Blue Demons (26-5, 13-3 Big East), who had their best conference finish, tying the Irish for second place, and earned the No. 2 overall seed in the league’s tournament starting this weekend.

Chester was positioned under the basket when teammate Taylor Pikes lined a successful feed.

Notre Dame’s Skylar Diggins, who had 18 points, then tried to drive the lane for a final shot but lost possession as time expired. Natalie Novosel added 17 points for the Irish.
