The Blue Demons (23-6) shot 66 percent in the second half, repeatedly driving past defenders to outscore the Colonials 44-28 in the paint.
Charlene Smith and Khara Smith combined for the first 10 points of the second half, helping ninth-seeded DePaul pull away.
Jenni Dant added 16 points and Khara Smith had 12 rebounds for DePaul, which will meet Tennessee in Monday's second-round game.
