Ramon Galloway didn't look comfortable from his front row perch, but the spot wasn't completely foreign. Hindered by foul trouble, the La Salle guard sat on the bench for five minutes early in the second half. It was the same padded seat he was in for the final three minutes of the first half. When Galloway returned, with him came a sense of energy that the Explorers used to turn back Charlotte, 85-72, on Wednesday night at Tom Gola Arena. "He's walking energy," said Explorers coach John Giannini.

OLEAN, N.Y. - La Salle saw its five-game winning streak come to an end Wednesday night with a 66-51 loss to St. Bonaventure at the Reilly Center.
