ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP)—LaDontae Henton scored 24 points, including a basket with 1.7 seconds left, to lead Providence to a 73-71 win over DePaul on Saturday.

After Providence blew an 11-point second-half lead, the score was tied at 71 when Vincent Council dribbled at the top of the key. With 5 seconds left, he penetrated and found Henton, who buried an 18-foot jumper to put Providence ahead.

After a timeout, DePaul’s Brandon Young threw a full court pass to Cleveland Melvin, but his shot was blocked by Henton.

Bryce Cotton added 19 points and Council had 14 for the Friars (13-16, 3-13), who snapped a 22-game Big East road losing streak.

Morgan Moses led DePaul (11-17, 2-14) with 13 points and Young scored 11.
