PHILADELPHIA -- Jerrell Wright scored a game-high 17 points and Steve Zach added 12 points, a career-high 17 rebounds and four blocked shots as La Salle ran away from Wagner for an 80-54 win Thursday night.
La Salle (6-5), which never trailed in the game, used a 15-2 run capped by Wright's jumper with 8:45 to play in the first half to open up a 25-9 lead and Wagner (5-7) never got closer than 13 again.
Tyreek Dureen, who finished with 11 points, six assists and one steal, moved into sixth place (433) on La Salle's all-time assist list and passed Kareem Towns, moving into seventh with 197 career steals. Zack took over eighth place on the school's all-time blocks list with 76.
The Explorers out-rebounded Wagner 50-29, including 22-7 on the offensive glass. La Salle assisted on 21 of 29 field goals and committed a season-low three turnovers.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
