    PHILADELPHIA -- Tyreek Duren scored 15 points and Jerrell Wright added 14 as La Salle defeated Rhode Island 72-62 on Wednesday night for its fourth straight victory.

    The Explorers (10-6, 3-0 Atlantic 10 Conference) erased a one-point deficit in the latter part of the first half with a 15-2 run, taking a 32-20 lead and never trailing again.

    Steve Zack and Sam Mills each had 11 points for La Salle, with Zack adding 10 rebounds as well. Wright also had 10 rebounds for the Explorers.

    Xavier Munford led Rhode Island (9-9, 0-3) with 21 points, while Gilvydas Biruta added 16 for the Rams.

    Rhode Island was hurt by its performance at the free throw line, hitting just 11 of 21 attempts.

    The Rams have now lost three straight since beating LSU on the road on Jan. 4.
