NEW YORK - La Salle shrugged off a rough start against a Massachusetts team that seemed to have its number, but the Explorers kept their basketball season alive. Ninth-seeded La Salle trailed by as many as nine points in the first half, but sophomore guard Jordan Price finished with 28 points to spark a 76-69 victory over the eighth-seeded Minutemen in the second round of the Atlantic Ten tournament Thursday at the Barclays Center. The Explorers (17-15) will meet top-seeded Davidson in a quarterfinal Friday at noon.

La Salle coach John Giannini has always said that any team can beat another in the Atlantic Ten. "For some reason, people don't want to believe me when I say this, but every game in our league is a 50-50 game," Giannini said. "Everyone has good players, good coaches. Sure, some teams have won more games than others, but there are no sure wins or losses in this league, ever. " The ninth-seeded Explorers (16-15, 8-10) will have the opportunity to begin proving their coach's theory Thursday at noon at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn when they open play in the A-10 tournament against No. 8 seed UMass (17-14, 10-8)

ONE GAME can do a lot to the psyche of a college athlete. At least that's what La Salle is hoping proves true as it begins play in the Atlantic 10 Tournament today at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. The ninth-seeded Explorers tip off with No. 8 Massachusetts at noon. And they're hoping the game that preceded it has a lot of affect on today's outcome and beyond. That game, of course, is La Salle's 55-53 victory Saturday over second-seeded Dayton - a team that was just outside the Top 25 last week - on Senior Night at Tom Gola Arena.

In the four losses leading up to his team's regular-season finale Saturday against Dayton, La Salle coach John Giannini figured he knew what the missing element was. "We've been playing tough but not as tough as some of the people we lost to," Gianni said. "We've got to find the 'er.' We've been tough but we needed to be tough er . We needed to make those extra plays, we needed to consistently defend. Today we were able to do that against a really good team and beat them. " La Salle (16-15, 8-10 A-10)

With La Salle smartly pounding the ball inside to 6-foot-7 forward Dave Krmpotich against undersized Ridley, Shawn Witherspoon had no problem with going scoreless - on just one field-goal attempt in - the first half. "Not at all," the senior combination guard said. "I don't concern myself with points. 'Krmp' was going off, so we kept giving it to him. " Scoring chances finally surfaced for Witherspoon in Saturday afternoon's PIAA Class AAAA state hoops opener, and he capitalized as usual.

Roman Catholic made a huge breakthrough by slaying six-time defending Catholic League champ Neumann-Goretti for its first league crown since 2007. And it repeated as the District 12 Class AAAA titlist. The big question now is: Can the 24-2 Cahillites also conquer the state playoffs? They have mostly struggled in the tournament, going 3-6 with four first-round exits in six appearances. Roman's bid for redemption is headed by guards Tony Carr, Gemil Holbrook and D'Andre Vilmar, and forwards Nazeer Bostick, Paul Newman, and Manny Taylor.

St. Joseph's point guard Chris Wilson was honored before the game during senior night at Hagan Arena. Then, fittingly, Wilson went out and had one of the best performances of his career in his final home appearance. Wilson scored 22 points, one shy of his career high, while adding six rebounds, three steals and one assist Wednesday as St. Joseph's defeated La Salle, 55-50, in an Atlantic Ten matchup. "It was very special and most importantly to win it with this group of guys," said Wilson, who shot 7 for 13 for the field and 5 of 9 from behind the arc. (The rest of the team was 1 for 10 from three-point range.)

AT THIS point 2 years ago, La Salle was getting ready to embark on an unexpected run to the Sweet 16. At this point a year ago, Saint Joseph's was about to win the Atlantic 10 championship as a four seed before coming closer than anybody else did to beating Connecticut in the NCAA Tournament. This year they're two teams in the bottom half of the standings, both having lost four of their previous five games, trying to get themselves ready for next week's conference tourney in Brooklyn.

Kathy May sees a lot of her older brother, Chip, in her niece Bailey Greenberg. The quick first step of the Archbishop Wood junior reminds May, an assistant coach for the Vikings, the most of the way Chip Greenberg played basketball. "Her first step," May said. "[With] her long first step, she can go by anybody. He could go by anybody. He could really jump as well. They have the same calves - strong, jumper calves we call them. Her sister has them, too. " Greenberg shares more than calves, a deft move to the basket and prowess on the boards with her father.
