       KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) _ 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.
