Lasan Kromah contributed nine points, six rebounds, three assists, thre steals, and a blocked shot in the victory. Charlotte fell despite 17 points, 13 rebounds, and three bloks ffrom Chris Braswell.

LaSalle dominted the Rhode Island Rams, 80-66, in its last outing as five Explorers scored in double figures, led by Tyreek Duren's 21 points on 6-of-8 shooting. Saturday's game ended LaSalle's two-game losing streak, with its defeats coming by a combined 10 points. Ramon Galloway and Earl Pettis score 14.8 points per game each to lead the Explorers.
