NCAA Game Summary - Saint Joseph's at La Salle



(Saturday, February 15th)

Final Score: Saint Joseph's 75, La Salle 64

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Langston Galloway led all scorers with 18 points, and the Saint Joseph's Hawks pulled out a 75-64 win over the La Salle Explorers in Atlantic 10 Conference play at Tom Gola Arena.

DeAndre Bembry was next in line with 16 points for the surging Hawks (17-7, 7-3 A-10), who saw all five starters score in double figures as they won for the 13th time in their last 16 games. Ronald Roberts added 15 points, while Chris Wilson and Halil Kanacevic scored 10 apiece.

The Explorers (12-12, 4-6) lost for the sixth time in their last seven outings, despite 16 points and a game-high 15 rebounds from Jerrell Wright in just 23 minutes of floor time. Tyreek Duren and Tyrone Garland each had 15 points to round out the double-digit scorers.

Saint Joseph's put together an early 12-0 spurt to turn a four-point deficit into a 16-8 lead midway through the opening frame. Roberts was a perfect 5- of-5 from the floor in the first half and had 12 points at the break for the Hawks, who claimed a 36-26 halftime lead behind a collective 53.6-percent effort from the floor.

Bembry scored all 16 of his points after halftime, and SJU knocked down 16- of-20 free throws over the final 20 minutes to earn the win.

The Hawks were out-rebounded by a 40-29 margin for the game, but they made up for it by capitalizing at the charity stripe and by taking care of the basketball, as they committed only eight turnovers. This was the first meeting at Tom Gola Arena between these two Philadelphia city rivals since March 3, 2001.
