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. Despite leading for virtually all of the first 39 minutes, the Explorers were unable to close the deal and ended up losing, 68-64, in overtime to the Atlantic 10's last-place team. 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.

LA SALLE'S sophomore guard, a transfer from a Southern school who can nail threes with ease from the wing, played a key role in the Explorers' 87-72 steamrolling of visiting Duquesne Wednesday night. No, that description doesn't fit only Jordan Price, the two-time reigning Big 5 Player of the Week for the Explorers, who transferred from Auburn in 2013. It also works pretty aptly for Cleon Roberts, who came to La Salle at the same time as Price from Georgia Southern. Roberts and Price dropped bombs from deep to start the night, as the Explorers (15-11, 7-6 Atlantic 10)

SPURRED BY a white-hot shooting performance from Quade Green, this one witnessed up-close by Villanova coach Jay Wright, Ss. Neumann-Goretti moved closer to a seventh consecutive Catholic League basketball title. With the rising sophomore guard connecting on 10 of 12 field-goal attempts on the way to 26 points, the Saints, who led by as many as 15 points, held off never-say-die La Salle, 70-65, last night in front of a large crowd at the Palestra. Green shot 5-for-5 from the floor, including 4-for-4 from beyond the arc, in the first half.

There are times when being first is good and times when it's not. La Salle did not want to be the first team to drop a home conference game to Duquesne this season, and the Explorers made sure that didn't happen Wednesday night. Sandwiching the first half of their game against Duquesne with 12-0 runs at the beginning and end, La Salle won at home for the fifth time in six games, easily beating Duquesne, 87-72, at Tom Gola Arena. "We don't tell them that - that would be nuts," La Salle coach John Giannini said jokingly.

A SUMMER OF death and seasons of change brought Jordan Price to the pinnacle of Big 5 basketball. That always seems to be the path for these quick-fit La Salle transfers. Price cycled through three high schools in 4 years. He found himself mired in a lousy situation at Auburn, injured, out of shape, losing. He lost his grandfather, then his mentor, in a span of 2 months. "It was a painful time for me," Price said. "I know God's always with me. Just got to get through the day. " His days have brightened considerably.
