GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) Jordan Price scored 19 points and La Salle traveled to Division III Rowan to take an 81-51 victory on Saturday.

The Explorers (4-1) made the trip to play the Profs to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rowan's 1996 Division III national championship. La Salle's John Giannini coached that Profs team and Rowan head coach Joe Cassidy was an assistant.

The last time a Division I school traveled to a Division III school was Nov. 22, 2003 when Villanova visited Redlands.

Price hit 7 of 14 shots, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range. Rohan Brown added 14 points while Tony Washington grabbed 11 rebounds.

The teams were tied for the final time at 13-all with 10:52 left in the first half. La Salle led 38-28 at the break and was up by as many as 34 points in the second half.

Shawn Wilson led Rowan (2-5) with nine points.
