IT WAS ABOUT this time last year when La Salle started its improbable run in the Class AAAA state playoffs. In fact, last season's runner-up finish began with a seeding-game victory at Southern High. Now, the Explorers hope last night's triumph at the same locale is the start of something special Part 2. "We were definitely a little worried coming in just because there's a lot of pressure on us," said senior forward Dave Krmpotich. "We made a deep run in states last year and if we didn't even make it this year it would've been a knock on us. But we just tried to get out there, play our game and we weren't going to let this be our last high school basketball game.

La Salle coach John Giannini wanted a specific answer from his senior center, and that is what he got. During an interview last week after a victory over Duquesne, Giannini - who actually was being interviewed at the time - asked Jerrell Wright, "Who's the most important person in our program, Jerrell?" Without hesitation, Wright, second on the team in scoring and rebounding, had an answer. "The newcomers," Wright said. "The people that are new here - freshmen and transfers . . . When they get here, our job is to make them comfortable.

Shortly after leaving the December funeral for Nate Fox, a player he coached at the University of Maine who was tragically shot and killed, La Salle coach John Giannini had a revelation. "As I went to the viewing, the only thing I could think of was how lucky I was to coach a player like Nate," Giannini said of Fox, who played professionally for 12 years overseas after playing for Giannini. "And then, as I went to my car in the parking lot, the only thing I could think about was how lucky I am to coach guys like D.J., Jerrell, and Steve.

Transfers can be program-changing players, and it's become the norm - not the exception - in college basketball. When La Salle made its surprising run to the Sweet 16 in 2013, the catalyst was Ramon Galloway, who began his career at South Carolina but helped turned the Explorers around in two seasons. Tyrone Garland, inventor of the Southwest Philly Floater that got so much attention when he won an NCAA game against Kansas State, was another transfer who keyed La Salle's run. Last season, St. Joseph's earned an NCAA tournament berth by winning the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament.

ST. LOUIS - In the past four seasons, whenever the La Salle Explorers have held a late lead, you could pull out the Sharpie and mark a "W" in the book. But not yesterday afternoon at Saint Louis University.

It marked only the fifth time in the past 74 games since 2011-12 that the Explorers were defeated when they led with 5 minutes to go. The loss dropped La Salle (15-12, 7-7)

Lots of companies mount ambitious programs to hire college graduates, but the Graham Co., an insurance and risk-management company, takes a different approach. "As a rule, we don't hire right out of college," said Kenneth L. Ewell, 57, Graham's president and chief operating officer. Question: Why did Graham adopt that philosophy? Answer: You just have a higher degree of success [if] they've worked someplace else, and they have a little bit of context and they have some basis to judge Graham against.
