La Salle Vs St. Louis Preview

La Salle looks to snap a two-game losing skid and remain perfect at home on Saturday afternoon against Saint Louis.

Two straight road losses have La Salle reeling, but the Explorers look to steady themselves back in the familiar confines of Tom Gola Arena against Saint Louis at 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

La Salle is 12-0 at home this season, but dropped consecutive road outings in this past week by a combined six points to fall from first place in the Atlantic 10 Conference to fifth. The Explorers fell 70-66 at St. Joe's last Saturday, then followed with another disappointment, a 78-76 heart breaker at Richmond, after allowing a put-back layup with 5.8 seconds remaining.

Saint Louis is tied for second place in the Atlantic 10, one-half game behind league leader Temple. The Billikens started conference play by losing two of three, but have won six of their past seven and enter Saturday's matchup on a three-game winning streak. Brian Conklin paces Saint Louis with 14.8 points per game.
