In mid-March, Kevin Lacon's place of refuge was suddenly infiltrated by dread. The La Salle High senior watched as his older brother, Patrick, an assistant coach for the Explorers, walked with purpose toward head coach Bill Leahy during a scrimmage against Upper Dublin. "When Coach Leahy said, 'Kevin,' I looked over, and I knew for some reason it was my dad, and my heart dropped," said Lacon, whose brother, Liam, is also a sophomore defenseman for the Explorers. "My brother said I turned white.

La Salle swimmer Jake Sannem's best time of four minutes, 19.64 seconds in the boys' 500-yard freestyle led the Explorers to an outright team victory at the PIAA 3A Swimming and Diving Championships at Bucknell University on Thursday. Sannem's time broke the PIAA record previously set by St. Joseph's Prep swimmer Matt Belecanech in 2009. Teammate Joseph Vizza clocked in at 4:27.05 to claim second place. With the win, La Salle secured its fifth consecutive state championship. The Explorers dedicated their season and state championship performance to late head coach Frank Lichtner.

NEW YORK - Fran Dunphy has been coaching at the college level for 27 seasons. Fran McCaffery, another Philly guy, has been doing it for 19. They've gone against each other only twice. Even though Dunphy, when asked about that on Thursday, said, "It's amazing our paths haven't crossed before. " Well, at least not for a while. McCaffery, whose Iowa team will get Dunph's 10th-seeded Owls in Friday's first round of the NCAA South Regional at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, remembers things differently.

NEW YORK - La Salle has been playing in the Atlantic Ten since 1995-96. During that time the Explorers have won more than one game in the conference tournament exactly once. That was in 2002, the first of coach Billy Hahn's three seasons, when they beat Fordham and Temple at the Spectrum before getting sent home by Richmond the semifinals. Thursday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, in the last of the four second-round matchups, the Explorers had an opportunity to do it again, three years after they'd won three NCAA games in five days.

NEW YORK - La Salle played 13 road games this season. The Explorers won one. And that was in late November, against Division III Rowan, where coach John Giannini had won a national championship 20 years earlier. But they'd won two of their last three coming into the 40th Atlantic 10 Tournament, which for whatever reason isn't being played at Gola Arena. It's been a forgettable season for a program that made a captivating three-win run to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tourney as a 13 seed in 2013, while it awaits the addition of three promising transfers who were forced to sit this journey out. The last time the Explorers lost more times was 1995-96, when they went 6-24 in their inaugural season in the A-10 after leaving the Midwest Collegiate Conference following a demoralizing three-year stay.

SO EXACTLY how did La Salle get from 24-10 and a Sweet 16 game against Wichita State at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on March 28, 2013 to 8-21, last place in the Atlantic 10 and an opening round A-10 Tournament game Wednesday night against Duquesne at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. "I just think I mis-evaluated," said La Salle coach John Giannini. "I knew we would be better next year. I knew that there was a chance that we would struggle, but I never dreamed it would be the season that we're having.
