WATCH: La Salle Beats Boise State For First NCAA Win In 23 Years
La Salle beat Boise State on Wednesday night, 80-71, for the Explorers’ first NCAA tournament win in 23 years. The Inquirer reports: “If there was any doubt La Salle deserved to be in the tournament, it was wiped away quickly. If there was any disappointment at being sent to Dayton for the “first round” – what used to be called play-in games – that was also quickly erased. Games in the quirky (and packed) University of Dayton Arena have all the buzz and sparkle of any other site on the opening weekend of the tournament. … The Explorers get another chance when they join the kaleidoscope on Friday. They had to hustle to make a charter flight to Kansas City, Mo., after the game. They will practice Thursday among Villanova and the six other teams playing there. It is from such experiences that winning programs are built.” The Explorers play Kansas State on Friday.
