Bonnies Direct Explorers Down the Wrong Path

Bonnies direct Explorers down the wrong path in 86-73 loss. The LaSalle Explorers (8-12) found themselves in a tight game in the Reilly Center against St. Bonaventure (10-2) on Tuesday evening. Things looked good for the visitors who battled hard and forged a 24-24 tie.

But, things took a rapid turn. At the 7:45 mark of the first, Explorer Coach, Ashley Howard was ejected and the ceiling caved in. Kyle Lofton went to the line and banged all four free throws that were awarded off the technical fouls. That was the point that the Bonnies never looked back.
