PHILADELPHIA - Tyreek Duren scored a career-high 29 points as La Salle beat Penn State, 82-57, Wednesday night for the Explorers' fourth straight victory.

The win moved La Salle to 5-1 this season, its best start since 2005-06, when the Explorers began the year 7-0. It also marked the first time La Salle defeated a Big 10 team since a 62-44 victory over Northwestern in 2000.

There were six lead changes in the first four minutes before the Explorers took control of the game with a 10-0 tear that snapped a 23-23 tie.

From there, La Salle never trailed, though Penn State (4-4) did close to within a basket twice - last at 43-41 after a three-point play from D.J. Newbill with 15:33 left.

Duren opened a close game up by scoring 12 straight La Salle points during a 3-minute stretch. He was supported by 14 points each from Ramon Galloway and Sam Mills, while Penn State was led by Jermaine Marshall's team-high 19 points, and Ross Travis and Newbill chipped in with 12 each.

With 10:48 to play and La Salle up 54-43, Duren nailed a 3-point shot, then followed with a three-point play. He sank two free throws after Penn State coach Pat Chambers was hit with a technical foul with 7:56 left in the game. By then, La Salle had opened a 65-46 edge.

Penn State was led by Jermaine Marshall's 19 points, and Ross Travis and Newbill chipped in with 12 each.

The Nittany Lions are back in action Saturday when they welcome Army to the Jordan Center. Game time is 4 p.m.

La Salle was 16 for 31 from beyond the arc in the game, while Penn State shot 33 percent (9 of 27) from the floor in the second half and made 3 of 12 from 3-point range.
