Neumann-Goretti's Duren commits to La Salle

Neumann-Goretti senior Tyreek Duren has given an oral commitment to play basketball at La Salle University. The 6-foot, 180-pound point guard chose the Explorers over Temple and Massachusetts.

For Duren, this was an extremely tough decision, one he dreaded to make. In the end, one thing swayed his selection.

“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 will be able to sign a binding national letter of intent during the Nov. 11-18 early-signing period.
