PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Gola Arena should be rocking on Wednesday night as the La Salle Explorers host the #9 team in the country, the Butler Bulldogs, in Atlantic 10 action.
La Salle sits at 12-5 on the season (2-2 in the A-10) after losing at Xavier on Saturday, 70-63.
“We did not have one of our better games,” La Salle head coach Dr. John Giannini tells KYW Newsradio. “Xavier had a lot to do with that.”
Butler is 16-2 on the season (3-0 in the A-10) and they are coming off an absolutely thrilling non-league victory over #10 Gonzaga on Saturday, 64-63.
