Drexel's defense took over today, as the Dragons went on to defeat the Golden Eagles by a score of 59-36. Damion Lee led all scorers with 22 points, and also added 3 rebounds and 2 assists for good measure.
The Penn Quakers jumped out to an early 14-2 lead in this game and did not trail until there was less than 2 minutes left, but the effort wasn't enough. Wagner's JoJo Cooper scored 5 unanswered points off a go-ahead layup and three-point play via an and-1 to give the Seahawks the lead with 1:43 left. Penn's Sam Jones hit a three pointer with 2 seconds left, but it wasn't enough as Wagner escaped with a 64-61 victory. The loss drops Penn to 0-5 on the year.
Jordan Price would lead the Explorers on a late charge at the Barclays Center on Friday night, as La Salle narrowed #8 Virginia’s lead to just four with 1:12 remaining in the game.
The redshirt sophomore, who sat out all of last season after transferring from Auburn, would tally 15 second half points, as the Explorers closed in on the Cavaliers late in the game.
In the end, eighth-ranked Virginia would hang on, handing La Salle a 64-56 loss, its first of the season, but not before the Explorers proved they are not to be taken lightly.
In a tournament dedicated to the legends of the game, it was only fitting that we would see another legendary play unfold right before our eyes. Wildcat senior JayVaughn Pinkston saw an easy look for Zak Irvin under the basket with 13 seconds left, he darted towards Irvin and stuffed his shot attempt. This coming right after Pinkston hit what would go on to be the game winning shot on the other end. Villanova led 56-55 right before the block, and Arcidiacono sealed the victory with 4 clutch free throws.
Jordan Price had his best scoring performance as an Explorer yet against the Terriers, going for 30 points on 10-17 shooting in leading La Salle to a 73-60 win over St. Francis. The Decatur, Georgia native was averaging just under 16 ppg coming into the contest. Price was a perfect 6-6 from the free throw line and nailed 4 of the 7 three pointers he attempted. He also grabbed 6 rebounds and had 7 assists.
