PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- La Salle coach John Giannini picked up his 400th career win as the Explorers defeated Bucknell 78-52 on Saturday.

Ramon Galloway scored 20 points, Earl Pettis added 18 points, and Tyreek Duren and Devon White each had 11 for the Explorers (5-3), who are 12-1 at home in the series.

La Salle started the game with an 11-2 run, then added a 10-2 run to lead 32-14 after two Duren free throws with 4:34 remaining in the half. The Explorers led by 20 points at halftime and by at least 17 throughout the second half.
