La Salle Explorers Schedule
Coming off of a 2012-2013 season in which the Explorers made an improbable run to the
Sweet Sixteen, the 2013-2014 season has been a bit of a disappointment for LaSalle. The Explorers currently sit at ninth in
the A-10 with a 4-7 conference record and an equally disappointing 12-13 overall record. The season has not been without its
highlights though as LaSalle beat crosstown rivals Temple and came within a bucket of upsetting then thirteenth ranked St.
Louis. The Explorers could still finish the season on a high note, and possibly even pull off another miraculous run in the
A-10 Tournament to earn an NCAA Tournament bid.

Sixteen run as well as fellow senior guard Tyreek Duren who leads the team in scoring and assists.
