2013 NCAA Tournament: La Salle Tops Boise State 80-71

The First Four action in the 2013 NCAA tournament has concluded, with La Salle claiming victory in the final game of the evening over Boise State by a final of 80-71.

La Salle now moves into the number 13-seed spot in the West region, and will take on fourth-seeded Kansas State on Friday in Kansas City.

The Explorers pretty much controlled the game the entire night, and despite Boise State making a few runs at various points, you never felt like they would overtake a La Salle team that suddenly has people around the world changing their brackets. This team certainly looked like a team that could upset Kansas State in the first round.

Why, exactly? Because they shot 63% from the field tonight. That’s right, folks. 63%.

And it all started with junior guard Tyrone Garland off the bench. He put up 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting and simply played outstanding basketball in leading this team. Ramon Galloway wasn’t too bad himself, as he scored 21 on 8-of-13 from the field.

Sophomore Anthony Drmic led all scorers with 28 for the Broncos in the losing effort.

But again, if you’ve filled out your bracket without giving a second thought about advancing La Salle past Kansas State, you might want to look at it again. I’m not guaranteeing that they’ll pull the upset. I won’t go that far.

However, they are going to push the Wildcats to the limit in Kansas City. Kansas State is officially on upset alert.
