La Salle Vs Dayton: Explorers Look For 7th Straight Win

La Salle looks to remain unbeaten in Atlantic 10 conference play when the Explorers visit the Dayton Flyers on Saturday night.

La Salle was picked 13th out of 14 teams in the preseason Atlantic 10 poll. Yet in the second week of January, the Explorers are riding a six-game winning streak and will visit Dayton on Saturday (7 p.m.) looking to maintain sole possession of first place in the conference.

At 2-0, La Salle is the final Atlantic 10 unbeaten. The Explorers opened conference play with impressive victories against Xavier and UMass, then defeated Penn on Tuesday in a non-conference game. Sophomore guard Tyreek Duren scored 21 points to lead La Salle against Penn and has notched double-digit scoring in every win during the streak. Duren is still third on the team in scoring, behind Ramon Galloway (14.8 points) and Earl Pettis (14.4).

Dayton is 2-1 in the conference after losing to St. Bonaventure on Wednesday. Josh Parker scored a season-high 19 points to lead the Flyers, but Bonnies forward Andrew Nicholson was too much to handle, registering 30 points, 13 rebounds and six blocks.
