The Blue Demons had a chance to come back when Cleveland Melvin was questionably blocked on his 17 foot jumper from the corner to end the game.
"We had a play at the end to get Cleve open in the corner," said DePaul coach Oliver Purnell. "We didn't execute it very well, Jamee shouldn't have been there. But we got the ball to Cleve and they did a good job of being aggressive on the stop."
Henton led all scorers with 24 points and 15 rebounds. Bryce Cotton (19 points) and Vincent Council (14 points and 11 assists) also finished in double-figures for Providence (14-15, 3-13)
The loss leaves DePaul in sole possession of last place in the Big East at 2-14 and 11-17 overall on the season.
Three point shooting cost DePaul dearly this afternoon. The Blue Demons shot five of 19 (26.3%) from beyond the arc.
DePaul was also hurt on the backboards in the second half. Providence outrebounded DePaul 48-41.
The Blue Demons were led by freshman Jamee Crockett and sophomore Brandon Young with 11 points apiece.
Cleveland Melvin picked up 10 points and 12 rebounds for his third straight double-double.
Donnavan Kirk blocked a career-high eight shots, grabbed 11 rebounds and added four points in the losing effort for the Blue Demons.
DePaul now travels to West Virginia for their final road game of the 2011-12 season on Tuesday night.
