It took most of the season, but La Salle is finally able to play defense. Their recent efforts have been turning up big results. The Daily News' Marcus Hayes has more from Tom Gola Arena. Read more

3-1 Explorers look to improve

We are on the way back from the Charleston Classic. I have never been to Charleston before and would love to go back to enjoy it more. Our team played a strong first half against a very good South Carolina team before they outplayed us in the second half. I would be surprised if they are not an NCAA... Read more

Atlantic 10 Tournament preview

Tuesday, March 10, 2009, 12:26 PM
WE'RE MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO: Stopping by one of the nearby racebooks between sessions to check out the action from Gulfstream Park. Semi-seriously, just some competitive hoops. Trying to make sense of this bracket is like trying to make sense of the regular season. There was a three-way tie for second... Read more

We were very pleased with our last win in St. Louis where the Billikens were 14-2 at home going into the game with wins against outstanding Dayton and Boston College teams. Now, we have the difficult task of beating them again in the A-10 Tournament. While we are please with a fifth-place finish in... Read more

La Salle's rough stretch

Monday, February 23, 2009, 12:05 PM
We just finished what I feel was our poorest week of the season. Explanations are very difficult and theories are too numerous to go in to. It is especially disappointing because our fan support was great Sunday. I know we can and will play better. For some strange reason we play better away from... Read more

Explorers rely on leadership, hard work

Thursday, January 29, 2009, 1:23 PM
Our team is playing better but consistency and toughness in very close games will be the keys for us and every A-10 team. With the exception of Xavier (I feel they are as good as last year’s Elite Eight team), most A-10 games are a toss-up. The talent level among each school’s starting... Read more

Explorers facing tough road games

Tuesday, January 13, 2009, 5:30 PM
We are on our way to Charlotte. Our next three A-10 games are at Charlotte, at Xavier and at UMass. The first half of our A-10 schedule is about as tough as it gets. We have to get some wins and I feel at some point we will put a winning streak together. We were extremely disappointed in our showing... Read more
