KANSAS CITY, Mo. Gerald called. If he can't be there in person, Gerald usually does. Be humble, he'd said. Be gracious. Share the love with those who helped carry the flag.
"He just talked to me about life," La Salle guard Ramon Galloway says of his Saturday morning conversation with his father. "He congratulated me on the win (over Kansas State). He just...
La Salle was a worthy competitor for one half. The rest of the game the Explorers would just as soon forget.

They avoiding a collapse of the horrendous variety, and only had an ordinary collapse, allowing the team an opportunity to salvage something...
