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.

Jordan Price has gone on scoring sprees before, but the La Salle sophomore can't remember a hotter five minutes than the run he experienced Wednesday in a 74-69 double-overtime win at Virginia Commonwealth. In the second overtime, Price scored all 12 of his team's points as La Salle beat a VCU team that is in a four-way tie for first place in the Atlantic Ten. "I can't think of ever scoring that many in an overtime period," Price said Thursday, still trying to digest the enormity of his performance.

RICHMOND, Va. - Guard Jordan Price scored 34 points, including 12 in the second overtime, and grabbed 17 rebounds as La Salle stunned No. 20 VCU last night, 74-69. Price, who also had five assists, hit a three-pointer with 29 seconds left in regulation that forced overtime. The Explorers (14-10, 6-5 Atlantic 10) also got 12 points each from Jerrell Wright and Cleon Roberts in winning for the fourth time in five games. "It was obviously a great basketball game," said La Salle coach John Giannini.

Playing defense wouldn't be considered the fun part of basketball for most players, but don't make that suggestion to La Salle's Khalid Lewis. The redshirt junior guard doesn't mind the grunt work. Actually, he relishes any aspect of attempting to stop the opponent. For Lewis, playing D has been a lifelong passion. "For a lot of players it isn't fun, but it is fun for me," Lewis said. "I like taking the best player and defending him and doing whatever I can to help my team win. " This is Lewis' second season with La Salle after sitting out a year following his transfer from Delaware.
