This Saturday at 3:00 pm, the La Salle Explorers in their first regular season game will be offering all veterans free admission. Veterans will be let in and must have proper identification. This is just for this Saturday as this will be the Explorers’ homecoming game as they will be taking on the Delaware Blue Hens from out of the CAA.
During the game, La Salle will recognize all veterans during a media timeout with a color guard presentation. The Explorers homecoming events will also be happening at halftime. The Explorers had an exhibition game last Friday at home versus Carleton as they won 61-58.
On the other hand, this will be the Blue Hens first game as well. Expect this game to be a high scoring affair as both teams are very young and talented. Both teams are led by experience guards, the Explorers lean on Ramon Galloway while the Blue Hens lean on Devon Saddler. Galloway and Saddler when hot both have the potential to go off in a game.
In the Explorers exhibition game last Friday versus Carleton, Galloway had 28 points, five rebounds, and three assists. These teams have met 23 times so far and La Salle leads the series 19-4. Finally, for Delaware they are expected to be good this season.
They won 18 games last season and won 12 games in CAA play. This season the Blue Hens were picked to finish second in the CAA. Only time will tell about where both of these teams are headed but overall they both have bright futures.
