PHILADELPHIA (AP) George Beamon scored 24 points and Michael Alvarado added 16, including the go-ahead 3-pointer that pushed Manhattan past La Salle for a 99-90 double overtime win on Saturday.

Beamon, sidelined by injury much of last season, returned in full health for Saturday's season opener and added eight rebounds and three assists to his double-digit scoring. Emmy Andujar and Rhamel Brown scored 14 points each and Shane Richards had 13, including four 3-pointers.

La Salle forced the game into overtime with an 8-0 run capped by a Tyreek Duran 3-pointer to tie the game 73-73 at the end of regulation.

Manhattan, trailing at the end of the first OT period, forced a second OT when Brown hit a layup to tie the game 81-81 and then blocked a jumper at the buzzer. The Jaspers took the lead on Alvarado's 3-pointer with 2:53 remaining in the second overtime period and pulled away.
