NEW YORK - La Salle made a furious comeback attempt that just fell short against one of the top teams in the country. Trailing as many as 20 points in the second half, the Explorers cut the deficit to four before falling to Virginia, 64-56, during the Barclays Center Classic on Friday night. La Salle's Jordan Price made the first of two free throws to cut the margin to 58-54 with 1 minute, 12 seconds left. Price, the 6-foot-5 redshirt sophomore transfer from Auburn, missed the second foul shot and La Salle never got any closer.

La Salle's Jordan Price and Jerrell Wright were alone in the open court. Instead of finishing, Wright handed the ball off to his streaking teammate for an easy layup. Running back down the floor, Price rubbed the bottom of his right hand against the top of his left, indicating payback for an earlier alley-oop pass he gave to Wright for a slam. By the end of the night, both players paid dividends for La Salle, igniting a struggling Explorers offense in a 73-60 win over St. Francis (N.Y.)

Sophomore Micahya Owens (Willingboro) tied a career high with 23 points to lead La Salle (2-2) past Manhattan, 61-48, at Tom Gola Arena on Tuesday. Ebony Wells added her second straight double-figure game, finishing with 11 points on 5-for-10 shooting. Defense was the name of the game, as the Explorers held the Jaspers (1-3) to just 29.6 percent shooting from the field.   Drexel 76, St. Joseph's 63 - The 3-1 Dragons led nearly the entire way at the Daskalakis Athletic Center.

LA SALLE used its height advantage over St. Francis-Brooklyn to its full benefit. The Explorers' starting frontcourt of 6-11 Steve Zack and 6-8 Jerrell Wright was taller than any Saint Francis player. Wright hit a layup in the game's second minute to put La Salle up, 2-0, and the Explorers (4-0) never relinquished the lead in a 73-60 win last night at Tom Gola Arena. Wright saw the duo's size as a major factor in the win. "Steve's actually bigger than everyone in the A-10, basically," he said, laughing.

TEMPLE'S DEFENSE last season was so atypically bad that you just knew coach Fran Dunphy would find a way to rectify it. Four games is a very small sample size, but the Owls defense is dramatically better. The offense? That would be another matter. After losing to UNLV, 57-50, Saturday in Brooklyn and 74-54 to Duke on Friday, the Owls (2-2) are 74th nationally in defensive efficiency (257th last season), but just 221st in offensive efficiency. When the Owls get Jesse Morgan and Devin Coleman eligible after the first semester, it won't hurt their defense and should help their offense.

La Salle held its third consecutive opponent to less than 40 percent shooting on Saturday afternoon. Afterward, it was John Giannini's turn to get a little defensive. "It's just good defense," the La Salle coach said after his Explorers defeated St. Peter's, 59-50, at the Tom Gola Athletic Center. "I don't know why you guys want to make this complicated. We're holding people in the low 30s, and no one can score 60 points on us. And we turn people over, too. Our defense is at the highest level.

HAMDEN, Conn. - Guard Jordan Price scored La Salle's last eight points, including the game-winning free throws with 3 seconds left, as the Explorers rallied to defeat Quinnipiac last night, 60-58. With 18 points, Price was La Salle's only double-figure scorer. The Explorers (2-0) trailed by 11 in the first half and by 10 with 13 minutes remaining in the game. They also lost senior forward Jerrell Wright after halftime because of a back injury. "If we ever get clicking offensively, we could really have a good team," said Explorers coach John Giannini.

When Phil Martelli got his job as head basketball coach at St. Joseph's, the men in charge of the city's pro outfits were named Ray Rhodes, Jim Fregosi, John Lucas, and Terry Murray. It's been a while. The Sixers have had 11 coaches during Martelli's two-decade stint on Hawk Hill. (The Flyers a mere nine.) It's not just Martelli. Philadelphia's Division I college basketball coaches are on an unprecedented run in terms of the combined longevity of their jobs. Even the least tenured among them is pretty much at the national average for a stay at a school.

WHEN THE season hits mid-February, nobody will remember much about the first games except who won. La Salle won. Penn lost. Conclusions would be a mistake. La Salle trailed much of the first half at Gola against Colgate, got a working margin in the second and held on to win 57-52. It looked and felt pretty much like a first game. Neither team shot very well, a combined 7-for-34 from the arc. The Explorers got 10 points and 13 rebounds from senior big man Jerrell Wright. La Salle also got 19 combined points from its two point guards - Khalid Lewis, who started, and Amar Stukes, who played in his first game after redshirting.
