The LaSalle Explorers could have packed it in early Friday night. Poor execution had helped host Father Judge pull ahead 22-8 after the opening quarter as the Crusaders found the range that the Explorers lacked. But LaSalle intensified its defense and used that, along with an effective half-court offense, to make a real contest of it before succumbing in the Catholic League North encounter, 47-45. "We didn't play well the first eight minutes or the last three minutes of the game," said LaSalle coach Marty Jackson.

RICHMOND, Va. - With 5.8 seconds left to play, Richmond forward Derrick Williams hit an under-the-basket layup to break an tie game and boost the Spiders to a 78-76 victory over visiting LaSalle on Wednesday night. After taking a 40-38 lead at the half, the Explorers found themselve in a four-point deficit early in the second half. The teams played most of the half point for point, but the Spiders (13-12, 4-6 A-10) held La Salle at arm's length. As the clock ticked down to fewer than five minutes, guard Tyreek Duren netted back-to-back buckets to hand the lead back to the Explorers (17-8, 6-4 A-10)

University fund-raising campaigns often last years and start with a quiet phase. La Salle University's effort was to last a mere 24 hours and began with a rush. By 2 p.m. Thursday, 14 hours into its first-ever fund-raising blitz, the university had reached its goal and then some. "Donations are coming in so fast, it's tough to keep up," the university tweeted. "Last count, we've raised $38,818 from 373 donors!" The university's one-day drive, called "Lasallian Day of Giving: Spring La Salle Forward," had a goal of getting 320 people to contribute.

The two sides have since reached a restitution agreement, with the university making a "substantial recovery" of the lost funds, according to a La Salle statement.

A night after toppling the top-ranked team in the country, a drained Roman Catholic was held off by LaSalle of Manhattan, 57-48, in the championship game of the Gonzaga/D.C. Classic.

Warner Bros. TV has agreed to pay Eriq LaSalle $25 million to remain as Dr. Peter Benton on NBC's top-rated medical drama, "ER," for the next three seasons, sources have confirmed. The deal, which includes some concessions to LaSalle's desire to direct and produce as well as act, would make LaSalle perhaps the best-paid dramatic actor in TV-series history. It would also lock up a core cast member of the nation's most-watched network series as it goes into the season facing the loss of two other key players.

In mid-March, Kevin Lacon's place of refuge was suddenly infiltrated by dread. The La Salle High senior watched as his older brother, Patrick, an assistant coach for the Explorers, walked with purpose toward head coach Bill Leahy during a scrimmage against Upper Dublin. "When Coach Leahy said, 'Kevin,' I looked over, and I knew for some reason it was my dad, and my heart dropped," said Lacon, whose brother, Liam, is also a sophomore defenseman for the Explorers.

ISSUE | COLLEGE SPORTS Odd La Salle choice Whatever happened to the classic reason for going to a college or university? Have we lost sight of the fact that we might get an education along the way? It is disconcerting that La Salle thinks the solution to its education issues lies in adding a couple of sports ("La Salle adds 2 sports to boost enrollment," Saturday). Also perplexing is that only a few area colleges have varsity teams playing women's golf and men's and women's water polo.

Thanks to his older brother, Mike McLaren may never grow a mustache. Much to his babysitter's dismay in the early 2000s, the youngest of three future La Salle wrestlers tussled over a plastic sword with his middle brother, Matt. The dispute ended with an emergency room trip and six stitches to Mike's upper lip. The oldest brother Andrew McLaren, an 18-year-old senior, remembers the incident as vividly as he remembers the family's unfinished basement with a mat, where the boys spent hours wrestling each other under their parent's supervision.
