La Salle Explorers Basketball Schedule

La Salle basketball made a return to national prominence in a big way at the end of the 2012-2013 season when they made a deep NCAA Tournament run going all the way from the First Four to the Sweet Sixteen. The 2013-2014 season was a bit of a disappointment as the Explorers went 7-9 in the Atlantic 10 before losing in the first round of the conference tournament to Saint Bonaventure. Tom Gola Arena offers one of the most electric atmospheres in all of college hoops and there is arguably no better place to take in a basketball game. The Explorers are determined to have a turn around season and make a charge up the A-10 standings that will result in an NCAA Tournament berth.

Yet again the La Salle Explorers will have big home conference match ups against all of the best teams in the A-10 including the St. Louis Billikens, the Virginia Commonwealth Rams, the George Washington Colonials, and the UMass Minutemen. It is never easy making your way through a tough A-10 schedule, but the Explorers have the talent and the drive to pull off some big wins in the conference as they look to pad their resume to hear their name called on Selection Sunday. The Explorers will need all the help they can get from their most vocal fans when they play at home at Tom Gola Arena so be sure to get your tickets from StubHub soon while you can still choose from some of the best seats in the house.


La Salle Explorers Basketball History

La Salle has a long and proud history of college basketball which includes a National Championship in 1954 and back to back Final Four appearances in '54 and '55. La Salle and Houston are the only two schools in all of college basketball to have two former players in the top 25 of NCAA scoring. The basketball magazine Street & Smith ranked La Salle as number 53 in its list of the Greatest Basketball Programs of All Time. It appeared as though La Salle was on the verge of a return to glory following their Sweet Sixteen run in 2013 but took a step back last season and are determined to get back on track with an impressive run through the A-10 in the 2014-2015 season.


La Salle Explorers Basketball Conference

The La Salle Explorers are members of the Atlantic 10 which has long been one of the truly great conferences in the country. The A-10 had often been underrated by those not very familiar with college basketball but with its addition of some new great teams in recent years it has become a conference that is impossible to overlook. There are fourteen universities who participate in Atlantic 10 basketball: St. Louis, Virginia Commonwealth, George Washington, Saint Joseph's, Massachusetts, La Salle, Dayton, Richmond, Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, George Mason, Davidson, and Fordham. There are several classic rivalries within the conference including the cross-town rivalry between La Salle and Saint Joe's who are both former Big 5 members, the in-state rivalry between VCU and Richmond, and the "Battle of the Rams" between Rhode Island and Fordham. With the recent additions of teams like Davidson, Virginia Commonwealth, and Saint Louis look for new rivalries to develop within the conference as these teams continually to face off against one another several times a year during A-10 play. If you are looking to see some top notch college basketball action, the Atlantic 10 is the place to be. As the conference continues to grow and gain more and more national attention, every team in the conference will improve and not only make a mark on the conference but the national college hoops landscape.


The Experience

Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot in Tom Gola Arena for a La Salle Explorers home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Explorers' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The moment you leave Tom Gola Arena you will want to immediately start planning your next trip to the venue to cheer on the Explorers.


Trivia

La Salle has had three National Players of the Year: Michael Brooks, Lionel Simmons, and Tom Gola. That total trails only Duke and Ohio State for most Players of the Year. Kobe Bryant's father Joe Bryant played his college ball for the Explorers.
