Atlantic Ten college basketball pits the La Salle Explorers against the Richmond Spiders.

The Ka Salle Explorers have followed a four game skid with two wins after downing UMass 60-51 on Wednesday as a two point home dog.

La Salle took an eight points advantage at the break and traded baskets the rest of the way with the Minutemen limited to 22.5% from the floor.

Saul Phiri led the Explorers attack with 14 points and four pulls followed by Isiah Deas who tossed in 12 points and posted six boards.

David Beatty gave La Salle eleven points with Pookie Powell and Ed Croswell netting nine points apiece with Croswell hauling in ten rebounds.

The struggling Richmond Spiders snapped a four game slide with an 84-81 upset of Saint Louis as a ten point road underdog.

Richmond took a seven point lead in to the intermission and kept the Billikens at bay over the second half behind 57.7% marksmanship.

Jacob Gilyard led the Spiders scoring explosion with 24 points and six boards with Grant Golden adding 23 points, seven rebounds and four helpers.

Richmond saw another 21 points, four yanks and four assists from Nathan Cayo followed by an eight point effort by Jake Wojcik.

LA Salle Explorers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and La Salle Explorers are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 vs. Atlantic 10. Richmond Spiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and Richmond Spiders are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Atlantic 10 and Richmond Spiders are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games. Over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Richmond and over is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings.

The Explorers have getting better each time out so I expect a competitive effort from them…

Pick:
La Salle +6.5

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.
