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)

Junior point guard Randy Woods was suspended by LaSalle basketball coach Speedy Morris for the first six games of the regular season, the university said yesterday. Woods, who started all 32 games for the Explorers last season and averaged 13.3 points per game, will be suspended until the end of the semester for punching junior guard Keith Morris, the coach's son, during a pickup game at LaSalle a week before the Explorers began practice Oct. 15. Woods and the younger Morris got into an argument, and Woods punched Morris in the face.

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 former head of La Salle University's food services was charged Tuesday with stealing $5 million from the school in a scheme dating back 20 years. Stephen Greb, 58, surrendered Tuesday morning at the District Attorney's Office to face theft, forgery, and other charges. The university discovered that the money was missing this summer and fired Greb, an employee for 26 years. 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. Down by 17 points with less than six minutes to play last night at American University's Bender Arena, Roman pulled within seven points twice in the final 2 minutes, 30 seconds. But the Cahillites were unable to shake off cold shooting - or LaSalle's spectacular point guard, Shammgod Wells. Wells, the tournament MVP and Providence signee, scored a game-high 20 points.

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.

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.

HERSHEY, Pa. - The bus carrying the La Salle lacrosse team slipped out of Philadelphia quietly Saturday morning. The Bad News Bears rolled across the screens, but most of the Explorers buried their heads in earphones. They left Hersheypark Stadium on a quiet bus a year ago, and it was on a quiet one they returned to avenge that defeat. La Salle dominated Conestoga, 13-4, to capture the PIAA state championship for the first time since 2009. In halting the Pioneers' three-year run as state champs, the Explorers also ended a two-game losing streak against Conestoga in the final.

DAYTON, Ohio - Over the last 21 years, La Salle's men's basketball program has been blessed with talent. They've had Kareem Townes, Donnie Carr and Steven Smith. Rodney Green was a terrific point guard and Rasual Butler played 10 years in the NBA. But the one thing these guys all have in common, besides being among the school's all-time leading scorers, is that they never played in an NCAA Tournament game. Ramon Galloway is the latest great player to pull on the blue and gold.
