PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s Big 5 action on Saturday at Gola Arena as La Salle hosts Penn.
Both teams are coming off losses last time out. La Salle was outscored by 23 points in the second half down in Miami, losing to the Hurricanes, 76-59, to fall to 9-3 on the season.
“Defensively we were extremely poor,” La Salle head coach Dr. John Giannini tells KYW Newsradio. “There’s nothing we worked on more than defense. To not do the fundamentals and habits that we’re taught and that we’ve been taught for a long time was really disappointing, especially given that it was such a great opportunity. But we’ll move on, we have a great challenge this weekend.”
