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.

LA SALLE'S Hank Davis has appeared in two games this season, playing a total of five minutes. He missed his only shot, and picked up one foul. He still says he's living his dream. "Definitely," insisted the 5-11 junior walk-on, without hesitating. "This is what I wanted to do. When you're an athlete, something would be missing if I wasn't part of a team. It's something I love. I always like to be busy working anyway. So when I got this opportunity I couldn't turn it down. "When I came here, they'd just had that Sweet 16 run. To keep my career going was just awesome.

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.

IN THIS season of their discontent, the La Salle Explorers' sanctuary has been Gola Arena. After beating Saint Louis there Wednesday night, 76-68, they are 7-7 at home. The rest of the story is their being 1-13 elsewhere - 0-2 neutral, 1-11 road, with that win against Rowan. A 58-41 lead with nine minutes left got down to 73-68 with 50 seconds remaining, but the Explorers held on. La Salle (8-20, 4-13 Atlantic 10) has now won three of five after losing 10 straight. If only next week's A-10 Tournament were played at 20th and Olney instead of Brooklyn.

WITH JUST a few days left in the regular season, Villanova, Saint Joseph's and Temple all lead their conferences. I think you can make a pretty good case that the all-Big 5 first team should come from those schools - Josh Hart and Ryan Arcidiacono (Villanova), DeAndre' Bembry and Zeke Miles (St. Joe's) and Quenton DeCosey (Temple). Player of the Year is a bit more complicated. If it's the best player from the best team, it's Hart. If it's the most valuable player, it's Ryan Arch. If it's the most versatile player, it's Bembry.

THREE DECADES after he left La Salle following an eight-year stint as the university's athletic director, Bill Bradshaw is returning to his alma mater to become the interim AD. "At this point in my life, it's almost like something out of heaven," said the 68-year-old Bradshaw. "It's been a long time. But I've kept in touch. It's in your blood. I have a lot of memories there. That makes it special. I think people overuse that word. But for me, I think that's really the case. I can't think of many people who've had something like this happen to them.

Jordan Price often found himself thinking about "Uncle Johnny" as he led La Salle to its 76-68 win against George Mason on Saturday. Just a few hours before the 2 p.m. tipoff at Tom Gola Arena, the Explorers' guard attended the funeral for Johnny Harris, a close family friend who died Tuesday. "I just wanted to come out here and just play for him and honor him," Price, 21, said minutes after his game-high 24 points keyed last-place La Salle to just its third win in Atlantic Ten play.
