La Salle Vs. Charlotte Final Score: Explorers Win Again, 85-72 Over The 49ers

The La Salle Explorers grabbed the top spot in the Atlantic 10 standings with an 85-72 win over the Charlotte 49ers on Wednesday night. It was the fourth straight win for the red hot Explorers

Sophomore guard Tyrek Duren led La Salle in scoring with 22 points. He was a perfect 8-8 at the line, and hit both his three-point attempts. The Explorers' leading scored, Ramone Galloway, spent the first five minutes of the second half watching from the bench after finding himself in foul trouble. He promptly added three assists upon his return to the game, helping La Salle put it out of reach for Charlotte. Galloway finished with nine points, six assists and five rebounds.

Duren and three others from the Explorers finished in double digits.

La Salle is now 6-2 in the Atlantic 10, leading Massachusetts by half a game. On Saturday, they travel to face St. Joe's before going back on the road to play Richmond next Wednesday night.
