PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The La Salle Explorers will play their first game since December 22nd on Saturday when they take on the Penn Quakers in a Big 5 match-up at the Palestra.
La Salle has been up and down so far this season, they will bring a 6-6 record into Saturday. Head coach Dr. John Giannini says they did their best to take advantage of the long break from games during the holidays.
“I think we wanted to practice, I think we wanted to get more healthy,” Giannini tells KYW Newsradio. “I don’t think we were pleased with how we were playing, although our effort has not been bad. But we’ve been missing shots, we haven’t been in flow offensively. We have a few guys just not playing as well as they’re capable of. So when you’re not as good as you think you can be, practice is a good thing.”
As for the health of his squad.
