The La Salle Explorers welcome the George Washington Colonials to town for a college basketball matchup.

The George Washington Colonials have dropped back to back games after losing to visiting Richmond 76-56 on Saturday as a one point favorite.

La Salle  struggled at  the  offensive end  of  the floor  at  41.8% while the Billikens connected at 46.6% which was decisive.

The Explorers saw the duo of Isiah Deas and Jack Clark each net 14 points and total three yanks while Pookie Powell added 12 points, four pulls and three assists.

George Washington  are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall and George Washington are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 Wednesday games and over is 8-2 in George Washington last 10 Wednesday games. La Salle  are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 home games and La Salle are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 vs. Atlantic 10. Favorite is 20-6 ATS in the last 26 meetings and over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.

La Salle has been getting better but I think there isn’t a whole lot of difference between these teams…

Pick:
George Washington +6

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
