La Salle gets a win and some confidence

THE ELEMENTS of the game, Dr. John Giannini said, are not complicated and do not change. Confidence, said the man who got his undergraduate degree in psychology, is guided by one overriding principle. Win and you have it. Lose and you don't. La Salle had it the previous two seasons. The Explorers lost it about a month ago in Olean, N.Y., and then had gut-wrenching home losses...

Fantasy College Basketball Game of the Week: Saint Louis at La Salle

This may be a bad thing for a college basketball writer to admit, but I don't spend a lot of time thinking about the A10. Perhaps I should since the A10 is fairly competitive with the newly formulated Big East, even if the Big East poached Xavier and Butler. [It goes without saying that I don't care for college basketball conferences that use numbers without meaning - somehow...

Billikens jet away with 16th win in a row

About 15 minutes after 13th-ranked St. Louis University’s dramatic, last-second win over La Salle on Saturday, SLU guard Jordair Jett stood in a hallway just off the court at Tom Gola Arena when La Salle coach John Giannini walked past. Giannini walked over and shook Jett’s hand. “Big time,” Giannini told him. Jett did it again on Saturday. He scored 25 points, including...

La Salle falls short, 65-63 to No. 13 Saint Louis

During its surprising run to the Sweet Sixteen last year, La Salle pulled out several games in the final minute. Those types of wins have been much tougher to come by this season, a big reason the Explorers are going to have a hard time returning to the NCAA tournament. Jordair Jett scored 19 of his 25 points in the second half, including the game-winning basket with 4 seconds...

Saint Louis-La Salle Preview

The Explorers only managed to make 15 field goals. That is not a recipe for success. The Explorers...

La Salle Overcomes First Half Defect

La Salle needed a big second half to overcome Stony Brook on Saturday. The Explorers once again struggled to shoot the ball but they got the win.
