LAWRENCEVILLE- The La Salle varsity teams are the Explorers. The University is named after St. John the Baptist de La Salle, however, not Sieur de La Salle the French explorer of the 1600s.

The Rider Broncs are still exploring their options, as they continue their journey that is the 2012-13 basketball season.

"We're a young team with inexperienced guys," said Rider head coach Kevin Baggett. "We need to make sure we prepare properly. With a young team you need to practice more and with the schedule we've had lately with playing and traveling every other day, we haven't had a chance to practice a lot. Once we get back to practices we'll be all right."

Rider's starting five lasted on the court for less than two minutes before Coach Baggett made three substitutions and made a fourth a minute later.  "I was just trying to find anybody off the bench that could bring some energy," Baggett said.

Tyreek Duren scored 20 points and had six assists to lead La Salle to victory at Rider Thursday night.

Holding a 49-43 lead, La Salle (4-1) out-scored Rider 11-5, five points each by Duren and Ramon Galloway, to take a 60-48 lead with 47 seconds left to play. Galloway finished with 17 points.

Trailing 39-26, Rider (4-4) went on an 11-4 run, six points by junior Daniel Stewart (Philadelphia, PA/Neumann-Goretti), to cut the lead to 43-37 with 11:44 remaining. Stewart finished with 12 points and nine rebounds.

Trailing 32-14, Rider out-scored the Explorers 9-2 over the final six minutes of the first half, three points by Stewart, to cut the lead to 34-23 at the half.

La Salle jumped out to a 19-4 lead, eight points by Galloway and six points by Duren.  "Our approach was not very good in the beginning and we practically spotted them 20 points in the beginning of the game," Baggett said.

"We came out slow and were forced to play from behind," Stewart said.

Rider junior Anthony Myles (Dover, DE/Poly-Tech) added 12 points and nine rebounds.

Rider out-rebounded La Salle 33-31, but the Broncs shot just .396 from the field, compared to La Salle's .458 from the field.  "We left some layups out there and they made theirs," Baggett said.

The Broncs committed 18 turnovers and made just 12 of 22 foul shots.

"The turnovers, the free throws, these are things that have hurt us in our losses this year," Baggett said. 

"We need to take care of the ball better," said Myles.

"Rider is a good team," said La Salle head coach Dr. John Giannini.  "Their losses this year are to good teams, so I'm very pleased with this game tonight. Rider is better than they showed tonight. I think our defense bothered them."

The Broncs lost to the Explorers 82-70 at the Palestra last year in the Philly Hoops Group Classic.  Rider last defeated La Salle at the Tom Gola Arena during the 2010-11 season.

Rider travels to Philadelphia December 1 to play Drexel at 12 noon.  "If we come ready to play, the way I know this team can, we'll be fine,' Baggett said.
