La Salle Beats Saint Joseph's 53-48

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Jerrell Wright scored 19 points and grabbed 10 rebounds and LaSalle surged in the second half to beat Saint Joseph's 53-48 on Tuesday night.

Cleon Roberts scored 14 points, including four 3-pointers, and Steve Zack had 12 boards for the Explorers (11-9, 3-4 Atlantic 10).

La Salle led 10-9 on a jumper by Khalid Lewis, but Saint Joseph's ripped an 18-2 run featuring two 3s by DeAndre Bembry and led 27-18 at halftime. Isaiah Miles scored 10 for the Hawks and the Explorers shot just 25 percent from the field.

Roberts hit back-to-back 3-pointers amid a 12-3 La Salle run, then Zack's tip-in put the Explorers up 45-43 with 5:09 left in the second half. The lead flip-flopped, then Wright hit a jumper to spark La Salle's final 8-2 run.

Bembry led Saint Joseph's (8-11, 2-5) with 20 points and five steals, Miles added 10 points, and Chris Wilson had seven assists.
