Rider pulled to six points back at 43-37 on Stewart’s three-point play with 11:44 left and 49-43 on Zedric Sadler’s free throw at 7:45, but that was as close as it would get. Galloway made a layup at 5:54 and a 3-pointer for a 54-44 advantage at the 5:10 mark for La Salle (4-1).

La Salle took a 6-0 lead on 3-pointers from Duren and Sam Mills and reached 13-2 on Galloway’s jumper. Galloway made a pair of 3-pointers to go with Jerrell Wright’s jumper for a 19-4 advantage with 12:37 left in the half for the Explorers.

Trailing 32-14 with 6:21 to go, Rider managed to close the gap to 34-23 at the break.
