Massachusetts coach Derek Kellogg had a first-hand look at La Salle on Jan. 8 and he didn’t particularly enjoy the view.
La Salle beat the Minutemen, 82-75 at Tom Gola Arena in a game that the Explorers exploded early and held on late.
The Explorers led, 51-26 at halftime.
An hour after a convincing 85-72 win over visiting Charlotte, La Salle moved into sole possession of first place in the Atlantic 10 thanks to losses by Massachusetts and St. Bonaventure.
Just don’t expect head coach John Giannini to celebrate yet.
“It’s like being up at halftime against a really good team,” said the head coach. “We had a really good half, but now it’s winning time. Now it really counts. It’s not bad to be up at halftime, but it’s only halftime. Nothing is won at halftime.”
