|ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) -- Marshon Brooks scored 17 points and Jamine Peterson added 16 as Providence defeated DePaul 79-62 Thursday night, ruining Tracy Webster's coaching debut.
Providence (11-6, 3-2 Big East) has won six of its last seven games against the Blue Demons (7-9, 0-4), who have lost 23 consecutive regular-season conference games.
