DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Tyrone Garland led La Salle’s guard-driven offense with 22 points, and the Explorers wrapped up the NCAA tournament’s First Four by getting the better of an old-fashioned shootout, beating Boise State 80-71 on Wednesday night.
The 13th-seeded Explorers (22-9) play fourth-seeded K-State on Friday.
Ramon Galloway, one of the Atlantic 10’s top scorers, added 21 points in a fast-paced offense that did pretty much whatever it wanted. The Explorers shot 63 percent from the field–16 of 22 in the second half.
Thirteenth-seeded Boise State (21-11) got its first at-large bid and was looking for the first NCAA tournament win in its history. Anthony Drmic had 28 points for the Broncos, who shot 49 percent.
K-State and LaSalle will tipoff at 2:10pm on Friday afternoon at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. SportsRadio 1350 KMAN and 101.5 K-Rock will have pregame at 1:00 from the K-State Sports Network.
