Dayton will look to avenge its only Atlantic 10 loss of the season on Saturday as they host La Salle. You can catch this rematch at 2:00 p.m. EST on NBCSN.
The Flyers (17-3, 7-1) lost on the road at La Salle on Jan. 9 in one of the more surprising upsets of the college basketball season to that point. Dayton has rattled off five consecutive wins since that loss as they’re battling with VCU and Saint Joseph’s atop the Atlantic 10. Charles Cooke paces the Flyers at 16.2 points per contest while Dyshawn Pierre (13.8 ppg) has given Dayton another lift with his return to the lineup nine games ago.
La Salle (5-13, 1-6) has been struggling for much of the season and the only win they had in their last 13 games came against Dayton. The Explorers have a dangerous scorer in Jordan Price (20.8 ppg) while Cleon Roberts (12.8 ppg) and Johnnie Shuler (10.3 ppg) have also been solid contributors this season.
