Final Score: Providence 84, DePaul 61

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Providence ends their three-game skid with a win over the Blue Demons Saturday.

Guard Bryce Cotton scored a game-high 22 points as Providence snaps their three-game win streak as they steamroll past DePaul, 84-61.

The senior led the Friars (17-9, 6-6) with six assists to go along four rebounds. He was one of six Providence players to score in double figures, along with Kadeem Batts (15 points, eight rebounds) and LaDontae Henton (13 points, seven assists). Providence shot just under 53% from the field, most of it during a monster first half in which the Friars led by 23 going into the break.

DePaul (10-16, 2-11) senior Brandon Young had a team-high 18 points while Sandi Marcius added 15 points and six rebounds. The Blue Demons lose their eighth-straight game, their sixth-consecutive road loss on the season. They shot just 40% from the field, including an abysmal 2-for-13 from three-point range.

Providence looks to build their case for an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament when they host No. 6 Villanova on Tuesday. DePaul will get an extra day off before they travel to Cincinnati to take on Xavier.
