Selected for the Big 5 men’s honor roll are:
This was not artful. Last season, however, La Salle had many artistic moments. And lost 18 times.
If the Explorers had made just 33.3 percent of their shots in a first half a season ago, the game would have been over because defense was generally a rumor.
In a late afternoon Philly Hoop Group Classic game at the Palestra, the Explorers missed twice as many shots as they made in the first half against Robert Morris, yet found themselves in a dead heat. Why? This La Salle team plays defense so they can hang in games when the ball does not go in the basket.
Saint Joseph’s junior guard Carl Jones has been named Atlantic 10 Conference player of the week.
Jones led the Hawks to a third-place finish at the Charleston Classic with victories over Georgia Tech and Tulsa. Jones averaged 26 points per game and was named to the all-tourney team.
Jones also was honored by the Big 5 as the co-player of the week along with Temple’s Ramone Moore.
