Bring On LaSalle

Moving to Tulane basketball, that was a nice winning effort versus the Penn State Nittany Lions yesterday. In hindsight, the openers versus Georgetown and Miami helped. Tulane looked ready for the size they saw- looked a little more "developmentally ahead" than they normally do this early in the season.

My father is a cranky LaSalle alum- a veteran of Philadelphia's Holy Wars between St. Joseph's, Villanova and LaSalle. This is an important match-up for me. Got to get those Explorers- might not have another chance for many decades. I can’t find a morning line though- a clue perhaps to the game's national importance. But if Tulane is going to flirt with 18 wins (I think their is real upside on this team if healthy), this is the sort of game they need to get.

Due to the popular metrics around the Tulane community, the Wave should crush LaSalle. The Explorer gym (Tom Gola Arena) is way worse than ours and they have ZERO money for anything.

Still, the Explorers might get more caring and love from the University President.
