    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Darnell Harris scored 18 points and Rodney Green added 15, leading La Salle to a 79-56 win over Richmond on Wednesday night.

    Sherman Diaz contributed 12 points and Ruben Guillandeaux 10 for the Explorers (9-11, 2-4 Atlantic 10), who snapped a two-game losing streak. La Salle shot 38 percent from the field, 37-for-47 from the line and outrebounded Richmond 54-25.

    Dan Geriot scored 12 points, and David Gonzalvez and Ryan Butler added 11 each for the Spiders (5-14, 1-5 Atlantic 10), who lost their fourth straight.

    The Spiders struggled from the field, shooting just 19-for-58.

    Richmond closed within seven points, 45-38, on a 3-pointer by Butler with 10:06 remaining. But the Explorers responded with a 12-4 run, capped by a 3-pointer by Harris, and led 57-42 with 5:59 left. Harris scored five points during the run.

    Richmond never got closer than 13 the rest of the way.
