La Salle outlasts Pennsylvania 75-71 in 2OT

PHILADELPHIA (AP) B.J. Johnson had 20 points and 14 rebounds and La Salle held on after he fouled out with 3:46 left in the second overtime for a 75-71 win over Pennsylvania in the Philadelphia Big 5 opener on Monday night.

Johnson scored the baskets that forced both overtimes for the Explorers (2-0) and Amar Stukes made a pair of free throws with 31.6 seconds left in the second overtime to make it 70-65 - the first lead of more than three points by either team since the 13:20 mark of the second half.

Penn prolonged the final 30 seconds with fouls and had Darnell Foreman's 3-point attempt to tie with 13 seconds left. But it hit off the back of the rim and the Explorers made 5 of 6 from the foul line to seal the win.

Pookie Powell added 17 points, and Stukes and Saul Phiri scored 12 each for La Salle.

Max Rothschild and Ryan Betley led the Quakers (0-2) with 14 points each.
