PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A very special season continued on Wednesday night for the La Salle Explorers as they beat George Washington 84-70 to improve to 21-7 on the season and also clinch a first-round bye in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. La Salle will wrap up the regular season on Saturday when they visit #16 St. Louis.
The win on Wednesday night was made extra-special by the fact that it was senior night at Gola Arena.
“Senior nights are a very important night to me in the scope of college basketball,” La Salle head coach Dr. John Giannini tells KYW Newsradio. “(Guard) Ramon Galloway’s done great things for our program, (center) Garvin Hunt was a great addition for our chemistry and our depth. So to send them out with a win in their last game was an emotional thing. Our kids played hard because they wanted to win for our season, but they also wanted to win for our seniors.”
