Explorers Throttle Sacred Heart 100-71
La Salle shot a blistering 63% from the floor while taking a 66-30 halftime lead as the Explorers coasted to an easy 100-71 victory over Sacred Heart on Saturday afternoon.
Ramon Galloway played a near flawless game as he filled the stat sheet up once again. He ended the afternoon with 22 points, 7 assists, 5 rebounds, and 4 steals. The game was never in doubt as La Salle jumped out to a 15-2 lead just five minutes into the game and never looked back. The balanced Explorers had five other players besides Galloway in double figures.
The all-sophomore frontline of Jerrell Wright, Steve Zack, and Rohan Brown combined for 48 points and 22 rebounds. Also in double figures were Tyreek Duren (14) and Tyrone Garland (12). Garland dished a career-high 6 assists as he turned in his third straight strong performance since becoming eligible on December 15th.
Sacred Heart was led by Shane Gibson (19) and Steve Glowiak (15).
La Salle returns to action next Saturday as they travel to Albany to meet Siena. The game will be telecast in the Philadelphia area on The Comcast Network starting at 7:00pm.
