La Salle completed its three game sweep of the Saint Joseph’s Hawks yesterday with a 56-63 win. The Explorers were out on the attack early, at one point growing the lead to 39-23 in the first half, La Salle’s largest lead of the game.
However, Saint Joe’s was able to close this initial gap. When all looked like it was lost, the Hawks put an 11-0 run from the end of the first half and the start of the second. Charles Coleman was the star of the show for the Hawks. The backup center had 18 points on 7-9 shooting (4-5 from beyond three). Ejike Obinna also contributed with 14 points and 14 rebounds. However, with poor play from both Jordan Hall and Erik Reynolds, the Hawks stood little chance as Clifton Moore and the Explorers sealed the win with two minutes to go.
