    KINGSTON, R.I. -- Tyreek Duren scored a game-high 21 points and Jerrell Wright finished with a double-double as La Salle pulled away to beat Rhode Island 72-65 Sunday in Atlantic 10 Conference play.

    Trailing 37-30 at the 18:10 mark, La Salle took control of the game with a 30-12 run, capped by Wright's dunk to go up 60-49 with 7:42 remaining. The Explorers led the rest of the way.
