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. The backcourt of Galloway and Tyreek Duren is lethal enough for the Explorers to finish near the top of the Atlantic 10.
