PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Tavon Allen matched his career high with 25 points - going 3-for-3 from 3-point range - as Drexel secured its first win this season, beating La Salle 66-53 on Saturday afternoon.

Allen also defended La Salle’s Jordan Price, and while Price led the Explorers (4-3) with 19 points, he committed five turnovers and sat out part of the game after picking up his fourth foul. Allen went a perfect 8-for-8 at the free-throw line.

Price, who made 5 of 14 field goals and a single 3-pointer, scored 6 points as La Salle cut Drexel’s lead to 47-45, with 12:54 left to play, but the Explorers went scoreless the next five minutes and, after Johnnie Schuler sank two from the line with 8:47 to go, La Salle had another dry stretch.

Rodney Williams scored 14 points with 13 rebounds, his third career double-double, for the Dragons (1-7). Rashann London scored 12.
