Rodney Green made four free throws in the final 46 seconds and Tulane missed two shots in the final seconds as La Salle earned a 61-59 victory in the fifth-place game of the Charleston Classic on Sunday.

Kimmani Barrett finished with 14 points and Green had 13 for LaSalle, which went 2-1 at the tournament and improved to 3-1 overall. Green added eight rebounds.

Ruben Guillandeaux added 10 off the bench.

Green's two free throws with 46 seconds remaining pushed La Salle's lead to six, but the Green Wave would not go away, thanks to a pair of three-pointers by Kris Richard. Richard's three with 19 seconds left closed the gap to two.
