LaSalle torches Duquesne 87-72

PSR Logo
Micah Mason stayed hot with 16 points, but LaSalle drubbed Duquesne 87-72 in Philly on Wednesday.

Coming off a hard-fought 82-74 loss to UMass on Saturday, Duquesne looked to regroup against the La Salle Explorers (15-11/7-6) Wednesday at the Tom Gola Arena.

The Explorers came out hot in the first scoring six 3-point jumpers in a row, holding the Dukes scoreless for the first few minutes of the game.

Despite the offensive efforts of Duquesne’s Mason, the Dukes simply could not catch up to the Explorers. Turnovers and missed shots prevented the Dukes from gaining any offensive momentum in the first half. The score was 43-27 La Salle after the first 20 minutes of play.

The second half was similar to the first in that the Dukes played a game of catch up despite four different players netting 3-pointers.

The Dukes’ top performer, Mason, had 16 points and went 4-7 from 3-point land in the contest. Derrick Colter added 11 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds.

Jordan Price led La Salle with 19 points. Jerrell Wright had 14 points and 10 rebounds.

The Explorers shot 48.4 percent from the field (30 of 62), including 13 of 30 from beyond the arc to lift them over Duquesne who shot 40.9 percent from the field (27 of 66). 

With the loss, Duquesne drops to 8-16 and 3-10 in the A-10. They currently sit in 11th place in the conference, only slightly ahead of Fordham, George Mason, and St. Louis.

The Dukes will face the University of Dayton Flyers at the CONSOL Energy Center Saturday Feb. 21 at 2 PM.
