La Salle has clinched a home game in the first round of next week's Atlantic 10 tournament. The Explorers, who won at George Washington on Wednesday, can still finish anywhere from the No. 5 to 8 seed, all of which would make them a host on Tuesday in a 7 p.m. game.

The Explorers host St. Bonaventure at 2 p.m. in its A-10 regular-season finale. The Atlantic 10 regular season concludes for teams on Saturday, after which seedings for the tournament will be determined, which includes La Salle's Tuesday opponent.

La Salle (19-11, 8-7 A-10) has a chance for 20 wins for the first time since 1991-92. It's also senior day, as the school will honor co-captains Earl Pettis and Matt Sheehan in a pregame ceremony.

St. Bonaventure clinched a first-round bye in the A-10 tourney with its overtime win Wednesday against St. Joseph's. The Bonnies (17-10, 10-5) have won four straight and five of their last six.

Temple will be the No. 1 seed. Atlantic City will host the final three rounds of the tournament, beginning next Friday.
