Game 8: La Salle (3-1) at Rider (4-3)

Who: La Salle (3-1) at Rider (4-3)

When: 7 p.m., Thursday, Alumni Gymnasium, 107.7 FM The Bronc, 990 AM

Last time out: Rider def. UW Milwaukee, 74-60; La Salle def. Villanova, 77-74 (OT).

Projected starting lineups: Rider: G-Jon Thompson (Sr. 11 ppg), G-Nurideen Lindsey (Jr. 15.6 ppg), G-Anthony Myles (Jr. 14.3 ppg), F-Danny Stewart (Jr. 9 ppg), F-Junior Fortunat (So. 4 ppg).
La Salle: G-Tyreek Duren (Jr. 15.5 ppg), G-Ramon Galloway (Sr. 15.3 ppg), G-Sam Mills (Jr. 9.3 ppg), F-Jerrell Wright (So. 14 ppg), F-Steve Zack (So. 8.5 ppg).

Rider player to watch: Myles had a terrific road trip, including a career-high 24 points in the win over Jacksonville. But his defense may be more important that his scoring against the Explorers. Myles, who at 6-foot-5 is Rider’s biggest guard, will likely draw the assignment against Duren, La Salle’s leading scorer.

La Salle player to watch: Duren handles the ball but Galloway is an explosive scorer on his night. The South Carolina transfer scored 26 points in the Explorers’ long-awaited win over Villanova. He’s also not afraid to chuck, firing up 22 shots against the Wildcats. If the Broncs slow down Duren, expect Galloway to bomb away from long range. 

Iona 83, Niagara 72: Sean Armand got first career double-double and Gaels first to win in conference play.

UMass 64, Siena 63: Saints coughed up lead in second half, lost at buzzer. Siena now 2-5.

Loyola 67, Coppin State 51: Greyhounds win Baltimore bragging rights in this rivalry behind Dylon Cormier's career-high 27 points. Loyola is 7-1.

Fairleigh Dickinson 66, St. Peter's 61: Remember all those good vibes from the Peacocks' 3-0 start. Yep, gone.
