Explorers drop one to VCU, 73-62. The LaSalle Explorers (7-10) traveled south to Richmond, Virginia, and the Siegel Center to try to knock off the VCU Rams (12-4).
LaSalle hung in and battled to a three-point deficit at the half. The highlight came late in the half when Hason Ward (13 points, 10 boards) converted what appeared to be an off-balance shot by Bones Hyland (24 points) with a slam dunk that brought the 250 fans to their feet. The dunk culminated in a Rams 9-0 run and turned the tide in the matinee.
The Explorers were led by Sherif Kenney who drained 20 points. Other leaders were, Jhamir Brickus (12), and Jack Clark with his 11. The affair marked the first career start for Ward and, surely he will get more.
