Weekend Stock Watch: La Salle Validates Itself as an NCAA Tournament Contender

If beating two top five teams in four days earns Villanova team of the week honors in college hoops, then the runner-up is another team from Philly. La Salle toppled the two best teams in the Atlantic 10 in back-to-back games, beating Butler at the buzzer on Wednesday night and winning a game of runs at VCU three nights later. Ramon Galloway was the hero in both games, scoring the game-winning layup against the Bulldogs and torching the Rams for 31 points. Those two victories and a non-league win over Villanova give La Salle (14-5, 4-2) its best chance in years to make the NCAA tournament for the first time in more than two decades.
