Atlantic Ten college basketball pits the La Salle Explorers at the Saint Joseph’s Hawks on Saturday.

The La Salle Explorers are eyeing consecutive wins after upsetting the Davidson Wildcats 79-69 as a 6.5 point home dog on Wednesday.

La Salle appeared to be back on track from a slow start but losses in four of five have the team staring at 8thin the conference.

Isiah Deas was the Explorers top gun with a 25 point effort while Traci Carter was right in his shadow with 24 points and six boards.

Saul Phiri gave La Salle 14 points and three yanks followed by David Beatty with seven points and five helpers and Miles Brookins with four points and four pulls.

The struggles of the Saint Joseph’s Hawks continued with a painful 80-79 defeat at the Massachusetts Minutemen as a 1.5 point underdog.

Saint Joseph’s have not been the same team we have been accustomed to seeing with several top players out and valuable production on the sideline.

The balanced Hawks attack saw 19 points and four pulls from Chris Clover with Lamarr Kimble adding 14 points and three yanks.

Jared Bynum and Lorenzo Edwards gave Saint Joes 12 points each followed by Charlie Brown Jr. and Taylor Funk with eleven points apiece.

La Salle Explorers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and La Salle Explorers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games.

St. Joseph’s Hawks are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games overall and St. Joseph’s Hawks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.

La Salle Explorers are 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings and La Salle Explorers are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in St. Joseph's.

I would take the points but I would need a healthy Pookie Powell and that might not be the case…

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.
