    PHILADELPHIA -- Rodney Green scored 17 points and sparked a late rally as La Salle defeated Mount St. Mary's, Md., 65-59 on Tuesday night.

    Kimmani Barrett added 15 points for La Salle (6-5), while Kelly Beidler, Jean Cajou and Jeremy Goode each had 11 points for the Mount (3-8), which lost its sixth straight.

    A 3-point shot by Goode gave Mount St. Mary's a 53-49 lead with 8:21 left in the game, but the Explorers then ran off 11 straight points, six by Green, to take a 60-53 advantage.

    The Mount closed to 63-57, but La Salle's Vernon Goodridge hit a 12-foot jumper with 1:44 remaining to end the threat.

    The teams battled evenly throughout most of the first half until the Mount went on an 11-2 run capped by a 3-point play by Goode for a 32-26 lead at the break.

    The Explorers made only 11 of 38 shots in the half, with all of their field goals either layups or follow shots.
