La Salle Vs Rhode Island: Explorers Host Struggling Rams

La Salle looks to bounce back into the win column on Saturday afternoon against Rhode Island.

The La Salle Explorers look to bounce back from two straight losses when they host the struggling Rhode Island Rams on Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m.

La Salle (13-6, 2-2) began Atlantic 10 Conference play with two straight wins but have dropped consecutive road decisions since. The Explorers cut a double-digit deficit to one with 3:25 remaining at Temple on Wednesday night, but Temple made enough plays down the stretch to hand La Salle a 76-70 defeat. Tyreek Duren scored 18 points but they were not enough to avoid the Explorers' sixth straight loss to Temple.

Rhode Island (3-16) has lost four straight to begin conference play, but the last three losses have all been by single digits, including a 66-64 affair at Fordham on Wednesday. Since leading scorer Jamal Wilson was suspended indefinitely in late December, the Rams have been paced by Billy Baron, who pours in 14.6 points per game.
