Re: 2/20 | La Salle Explorers | 7PM (CBSSN)

I think I'd rather be a point or two ahead or a point or two behind with a few minutes left than to be up by 6 or 8. We have to stay aggressive offensively that way. When we play slow, we stink. If this keeps happening it's going to drive all of us straight to the looney bin. We did a little of thi...
