PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are just three games left in the regular season for the La Salle Explorers, and the first of those is Saturday afternoon at Gola Arena against Duquesne.READ MORE: Eastern State Penitentiary To Resume Night Tours Next Month
The last time we saw the Explorers, they were rallying in the second half at Rhode Island, eventually pulling out a 72-65 win on Sunday. That improved La Salle to 19-7 (tied for third in A-10 with a 9-4 mark) as they continue to try to build up a resume to get them into the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 1991-92 season.
“It’s no surprise that trying to make the post-season is much like winning a game,” La Salle head coach Dr. John Giannini tells KYW Newsradio. “It comes down to small things and you can’t let up. When you’re playing a good opponent, if often comes down to one play, a few points. Making the NCAA Tournament will probably come down to a game here or there. It’s very hard to separate good teams, not much will separate them and you really have to try to win as many games as possible.”
