Both of these teams have been competitive but certainly a notch below the really good teams in the league. Everybody always looks at Davidson fondly and they way they shoot they can be dangerous in any one game.
La Salle is certainly less fearsome. They have mostly just been better than the bottom of the league and collected wins as a result. It is hard to see them going on a run this week.
The Wildcats come into the tournament off a tough OT loss to Rhode Island. It is just another example of how this team can compete with the top teams in the conference.
Jack Gibbs is not Steph Curry but he is a great college scorer. He has had 29 in back to back games to close the season and if he is hot he can really keep his team in the game. He will be playing almost every minute if not all of them in this one.
Peyton Aldridge gives them another 20ppg scorer. He also leads the team in rebounding with eight. He has size at 6’8″ and can brings bigs away from the paint making his value even greater.
Those two play more than 36 minutes per game and score more than half the team’s points. They will be well rested to do so again in this one but it might be worth monitoring if the Wildcats do advance.
La Salle Explorers
This game will probably come down to the three point line. La Salle has been terrible defending it all season long allowing opponents to make 39% from deep. They obviously know this but will anything change in this one.
B.J. Johnson is a Syracuse transfer who really found a home with the Explorers. He is leading the team averaging 17ppg and 6 rpg. I bet Jim Boeheim would love to have him for depth now.
The Explorers are solid on the perimeter where Pookie Powell and Jordan Price kick in another 28ppg. Both are experienced players who could be a part of a push this time of year.
La Salle has just a bit of length but they do not get much done inside. That is not going to hurt them too much in this one though they are going to have to rebound to win. That is not a huge strength.

Free Davidson Wildcats vs. La Salle Explorers NCAAB Prediction:
La Salle took the only meeting between these two this season, scoring 91 points to win and cover as a home favourite. The score zoomed over the total thanks to a super efficient night by the Explorers offense.
Davidson was pretty solid in the contest but they just couldn’t score enough. At a neutral site maybe their offensive efficiency stays closer to what we have seen throughout the season.

I am not putting too much stock in the lone result from this season. I think the Wildcats might have more going for them.
