Hopefully he heals quickly and it won't become a recurring issue this season. The Explorers are a much better squad when they have the 6'8" 245 lb big man. If he does have to miss some time, expect Tony Washington and Rohan Brown to get some more playing time in Wright's absence.
D.J. Peterson had a good all-around game himself, scoring 8 points and grabbing 8 rebounds in 37 minutes. The Explorers needed a veteran presence in the lineup with Wright gone for the second half, and Peterson provided the answer, along with Steve Zack.
Even though the Explorers were badly out-rebounded 59-35 (including giving up 21 offensive rebounds), they still found a way to come back and secure their second victory of the season. The Explorers found themselves in a tough matchup against Quinnipiac's Ousmane Drame, who sits at 5th in the nation in individual rebounding. They managed to have only 9 turnovers on the game, while the Bobcats turned the ball over 16 times themselves.
Looking at the stats, you would have thought that the Bobcats had clearly won the game, but La Salle was very effective on the defensive end, holding Quinnipiac to less than 30% shooting from the field. They have let up an average of 55 points per game to their opponents so far this season.
