What to Know

The La Salle Explorers and the Saint Louis Billikens are set to square off in an Atlantic 10 matchup at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 16 at Chaifetz Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

The Explorers received a tough blow on Saturday as they fell 77-63 to the Richmond Spiders. La Salle's loss came about despite a quality game from forward Clifton Moore, who had 17 points along with five rebounds and three blocks. Moore has also now had at least three blocks in his past three games.

Meanwhile, Saint Louis was close but no cigar on Monday as they fell 83-79 to the St. Bonaventure Bonnies. Guard Fred Thatch Jr. put forth a good effort for the losing side as he dropped a double-double on 17 points and 13 boards.

La Salle have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 13.50 point spread they are up against. Now might not be the best time to take the Explorers against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.

The losses put La Salle at 7-15 and Saint Louis at 17-8. A couple offensive stats to keep an eye on: La Salle has only been able to knock down 41.60% percent of their shots, which is the 51st lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. The Billikens' offense has more to brag about, as they they come into the matchup boasting the 27th most points per game in college basketball at 78.6. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
