UPDATE - La Salle has been eliminated from the Atlantic 10 Tournament, falling to Butler 69-58.
Matchup: No. 5 Butler vs. No. 4 La Salle, Atlantic 10 Tournament Quarterfinals
Time: 2:30 p.m. EDT
Venue: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, N.Y.
TV: The Comcast Network (Brad Johansen and John Griffin)/WNTP 990-AM
The conventional wisdom tells us that La Salle will seal a place in the NCAA Tournament with a win over Butler. Which means the Explorers are 40 minutes of basketball away from their first ticket to the Big Dance in 21 years.
It's a lot of pressure to put on one game, but it's merited. La Salle has earned the right to the spotlight it will be in this afternoon.
