Duren picks La Salle

Neumann-Goretti senior Tyreek Duren gave an oral commitment today to play basketball at La Salle University. The 6-foot, 180-pound point guard chose the Explorers over Temple and Massachusetts. “Out of Temple, La Salle and UMass, I think at La Salle I got the best chance of playing right away and be on a good team,” he said. Duren plans to sign a binding national letter of intent during the Nov. 11-18 early signing period. One of the area’s most improved players, he is regarded as the nation’s 25th-ranked point guard in the Class of 2010 by ESPN Insiders. ESPN also lists him as the third-best overall prospect with Pennsylvania ties behind South Philly native Dion Waiters (Life Center, N.J.) and State College’s Taran Buie. A pure point guard, Duren can penetrate, dish and finish. He’s known as a good long-range shooter and a solid defender.
