The La Salle Explorers look for their fourth straight win Wednesday night when they host the Charlotte 49ers in an Atlantic 10 Conference tilt at 7 p.m.
Bouncing back from two consecutive losses, La Salle knocked off Duquesne on Saturday for its third straight win and moved into a three-way tie atop the A-10 with a 5-2 record. The Explorers were led Saturday by Earl Pettis' 20 points and Ramon Galloway's double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Charlotte has lost three straight overall and five consecutive in the conference. The 49ers used a late run Saturday night to put Xavier on the ropes, but Tu Holloway sank two free throws with four seconds remaining to seal Xavier's 74-70 win. Chris Braswell leads the way with 14.4 points and 7.4 rebounds per game, and Javarris Barnett adds 12.3 points and 6.3 boards.
