LA SALLE'S sophomore guard, a transfer from a Southern school who can nail threes with ease from the wing, played a key role in the Explorers' 87-72 steamrolling of visiting Duquesne Wednesday night. No, that description doesn't fit only Jordan Price, the two-time reigning Big 5 Player of the Week for the Explorers, who transferred from Auburn in 2013. It also works pretty aptly for Cleon Roberts, who came to La Salle at the same time as Price from Georgia Southern. Roberts and Price dropped bombs from deep to start the night, as the Explorers (15-11, 7-6 Atlantic 10)

While advancing to the PIAA Class AAAA state championship game last year, La Salle prevailed in six win-or-go-home contests. The first came in a Catholic League playoff quarterfinal against St. Joseph's Prep. Friday afternoon, like last season, the archrivals squared off in the same round to determine which team would continue its season and which would have to pack its bags for a final time. And the fifth-seeded Explorers claimed the high-stakes matchup again, this time using a pair of late free throws from Dave Krmpotich to escape the No. 4 Hawks, 37-33, before an overflow crowd at Kelly Fieldhouse.

Every day in practice, Luke Ratchford and the La Salle wrestling team entered the gym and saw a newspaper clipping hanging from the door. The story from last season's loss in the Catholic League Championship has served as a constant reminder of the night Father Judge snapped the Explorers' five-year streak as league champs. For the sophomore wrestler, the clipping led to what he said was La Salle's biggest meet of the year: Wednesday night's Catholic League championship at Father Judge.
