La Salle's Duren not ready to call it a career

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...

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...

What winning streak? No. 13 Billikens keep focus on La Salle

Weather-wise, Saint Louis wound up with a bad week to play two games in Philadelphia. Sleeping on a school record for consecutive wins likely helped ease any hardships. The 13th-ranked Billikens will look to end their time in the winter storm-crippled city Saturday night by extending their winning streak to 16 games in a visit to La Salle. Saint Louis (21-2, 8-0 Atlantic 10) set...

Explorers Fall to St. Bonaventure

La Salle looked like they turned the corner offensively as of late. But that was not the case on Wednesday night. La Salle never appeared comfortable on the offensive end and their offensive numbers reflect that. They shot 30 percent from the field and 17 percent from three point range. The Explorers only managed to make 15 field goals. That is not a recipe for success. The Explorers...

Tyrone Garland is a prep legend in the city of Philadelphia, but to those who may not be as familiar, he’s known for spending two seasons at Virginia Tech before returning home to attend La Salle.

Galloway, La Salle are a story to fall in love with

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...
