Cold Shooting Explorers Fall to Robert Morris 51-44
Despite turning in one of their best defensive performances of the season, La Salle dropped a 51-44 decision to the Robert Morris Colonials in a Philly Hoop Group Classic game at the Palestra. The Explorers held the Colonials to 28% from the field but were only able to connect on 3 out of their 22 attempts from beyond the arc and shot only 31.9% from the floor themselves.
Sam Mills was the only Explorer in double figures with 15 points. Ramon Galloway added 8 points in his first game back after missing the last three due to a concussion he suffered during the season opening win against Lafayette. Robert Morris was led by former North Catholic star Velton Jones' 14 points and former Chester (PA) HS standout Russell Johnson's 12.
