THE LIGHT BLUE stands at Tom Gola Arena hummed from the boisterous devotees screaming at the top of their lungs. There was barely any time left. He had to make his move in 4 seconds. The inbounds pass popped into his hands. Three dribbles, then another step to halfcourt and the release flowed from his fingers as quickly as his flight from the baseline. Forty seven feet later, Jordan Price had his first big moment at La Salle University: a buzzer-beating, midcourt prayer answered in the 40th minute.

The La Salle Explorers put a defensive blanket over George Washington and didn't remove it until the game was over, holding the Colonials almost 20 points below their season average to score a decisive 63-50 victory Saturday at Tom Gola Arena. In ending a two-game losing streak, the Explorers halted the Colonials' six-game winning streak by holding them to just 39.5 percent shooting from the floor. La Salle, which never trailed, also forced the Colonials into an uncharacteristic 20 turnovers.

In the lexicon of our youth, when an offensive player gets hot he is said to "cook" his opponent, which aptly describes what Conwell-Egan guard Stevie Jordan did to visiting La Salle in yesterday's first half. Jordan, a 5-foot-10 junior, baked the Explorers defense for 19 first-half points en route to a slight halftime edge for the Eagles. However, by the second half, Shawn Witherspoon and Najee Walls - La Salle's defensive leaders - had resolved to stop Chef Jordan. "We gotta strap up," Witherspoon said he told Walls at halftime.

YOU PREPARE for enough games, you have some expectation as to what might happen based on what has happened. And then Massachusetts-La Salle happened last night at Gola Arena. La Salle senior Jerrell Wright, the second-most accurate shooter (56.8 percent) in school history behind Craig Conlin, shot 1-for-12. UMass, a 28 percent three-point shooting team on the season, made six of its first 10 threes. La Salle, which had played solid defense all season, allowed George Mason to shoot 57.5 percent in a loss Saturday and UMass to shoot 51.9 percent.
