2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament: La Salle Vs. St. Louis Game Time, TV Schedule And More

After taking care of a tough Richmond team 70-62 on Tuesday night, seventh-seeded La Salle will now face a much stiffer test in the second seed Billikens of St. Louis.

The Explorers (21-11, 9-7) have no choice but to win the A-10 Tourney if they want a bid into March Madness. The good news is that they're hot at the right time. La Salle has won its last three games and looked good in doing so.

The bad news is those victories all came against teams of lesser quality than Rick Majerus' Billikens.

St. Louis (24-6, 12-4) will have enjoyed a six-day rest by the time tip-off occurs Friday evening. Majerus has seen his club play excellent lately, winning eight of nine coming into the tournament.

In their only previous meeting on Feb. 11 with the Explorers, the Billikens took care of business on the road, winning 59-51. Sophomore forward Dwayne Evans took the game over, scoring 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds on the way to victory.

St. Louis is probably in the dance regardless of the outcome on Friday. La Salle doesn't have that luxury.

Time: 6:30 p.m. ET
