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.

Wright had 12 points and 15 rebounds, and Ramon Galloway added 13 points and seven boards as La Salle (19-7, 9-4) outrebounded Rhode Island 37-31.

Though the Explorers, who have won five of their last six games, shot 30.4 percent (7-of-23) in the first half and trailed at halftime 30-27, they improved to 55.2 percent (16-of-29) after intermission.

Trailing 37-30 at the 18-minute, 10-second 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.

Xavier Munford led the Rams (8-18, 3-10) with 18 points, and Nikola Malesevic and Mike Aaman added 15 points apiece.
