LOS ANGELES - This part of La Salle's NCAA run is a shame: By the luck of the draw, Bill Raftery hasn't been assigned an Explorers game yet.
The CBS Sports college basketball analyst, best in his business, doesn't mind.
"It's been fun being a fan - you don't often get a chance," said Raftery, who is working the games in Washington this week.
Raftery, 69, was a La Salle cocaptain in 1962-63.
"Don't look up my record, that's all," Raft rafted. (In fact, the Explorers weren't bad in his time, going 15-7, 16-9 and 16-8, and he led the Explorers with 17.8 points a game as a sophomore in 1960-61.)
