Holy almost give it away, Explorers! You beautiful kids from North Philly held on though, and that’s all that matters. What a wild first day.
After coming out to a red hot start in the first half, La Salle went ice cold in the second, but free throw shooting kept them in it. Love, love, love when teams make free throws.
And the La Salle dream lives on with a relatively beatable opponent in front of them on their path to the sweet sixteen. No. 12 seed Ole Miss upset No. 5 Wisconsin earlier in the day. The Explorers will face them Sunday.
And the Temple Owls held on by the skin of their teeth as well. Nice to see Fran Dunphy further kick that one-and-Dunph stigma under scorers table.
Villanova is up next. Here’s what you need to know about their matchup with the North Carolina Tar Heels this evening.
We’re likely done for the day here. See you at the bar.
