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.

Everything is relative with this season's La Salle team, which has dealt with six- and 10-game losing streaks and had won just twice since Thanksgiving weekend. Trying to win two of three (even if the middle game was a 40-point loss) may not seem like much, but when you are closing on 20 losses, any good news is a positive. When the game turned toward Fordham in the second half Wednesday night at Tom Gola Arena and the Rams built a 10-point lead, a comeback, given all that had gone down, did not seem very likely.

Brice Johnson had 22 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 7 North Carolina beat North Carolina State, 80-68, on Wednesday night in Raleigh, N.C. Justin Jackson added 17 points for the Tar Heels (23-5, 12-3 Atlantic Coast Conference), who shook off a slow start and an early 13-point hole to extend their recent dominance against their nearby rivals. UNC has won 19 of 21 meetings, including 11 of 13 on the road. The Tar Heels entered this game alone in first place in the ACC, just ahead of No. 12 Miami.

LA SALLE was searching for its best stretch since it started 3-0, which seems like a long time ago and probably feels like forever to the players and coaches. The Explorers finally have all their players back, but those three top-100 high school recruits, all transfers, won't be suiting up until November. Fordham was trying to improve on its best win total since 2006-07 under first-year coach Jeff Neubauer (La Salle Class of '93), but had been playing for five straight games without its second-leading scorer and had lost four of the five.

Men and women should be able to share a townhouse on their college campus - even if that college is Catholic, says Nicholas Lario, a sophomore at La Salle University. Turns out, nearly four-fifths of those in La Salle's student body who voted in a recent student-government referendum agreed with him. The university's administration has not taken a position on the issue. Were La Salle to adopt Lario's proposal, it could be the only Catholic college in the area - perhaps the country - to allow such an arrangement, though many schools have allowed men and women to share dorm rooms and apartments for years.

As his team has suffered one frustrating loss after another, La Salle junior Jordan Price has had to readjust his thinking. Where winning once may have been taken for granted, this season Price has found how difficult it can be to accumulate a simple W. So when La Salle upset St. Bonaventure, 71-64, on Feb. 17 to snap a 10-game losing streak, Price rediscovered the joy of winning. "It was a rare feeling for us this year, and you just try to enjoy it as much as you can," Price said.

AFTER SUCCESSFULLY completing exams in anatomy and theology in the afternoon, Archbishop Wood senior Bailey Greenberg went to the Palestra and aced a test in history. Greenberg, who comes from strong basketball stock, scored 16 points as Wood beat NeumannGoretti, 40-36, to win the Catholic League championship for the first time since 2011.
