Bison play another winless team this week, though LaSalle didn't look it today. They took Villanova down to the wire before losing 85-78.

Bison89 and possibly family plan to attend. LaSalle always plays the Bison tough. So, I am expecting a close one.

GO BISON!

That's likely. LaSalle is a two-point favorite per Pomeroy. Despite a slow start under their new coach, they were down by only one point to Villanova in the final minutes on Saturday - despite LaSalle having their leading scorer (Pookie Powell) and their leading rebounder out with back spasms and a foot injury respectively. I suspect Powell will be back tomorrow.

The start of a stretch of eight games in a row away from Sojka. That must the longest such streak in a while.

PS: I feel compelled to point out that in "La Salle," there's a space between La and Salle.

I used the Pomeroy site to check back to 2001-02 and there has not been a streak of eight or more since then - and likely much longer. I found two streaks of six games away from Sojka. The more interesting one was in 2006-06 since it included:

- A great road win over a good GMU team - coached by Jim Larranaga - less than 24 hours after a tough home loss to UNI.
- The great win at Xavier (Sean Miller) that caused such a meltdown on their board. Xavier already had a win over a very good Villanova team and then beat top 50's Illinois and Kansas State. They ended the year ranked #32 by Pomeroy.
- A hard fought nationally televised loss at Texas Tech in which Bobby Knight tied Dean Smith's all-time record for wins.
- The disastrous loss right after Christmas to Central Arkansas that likely cost the Bison the #1 seed and home court advantage in the PL tournament. At tournament time, BU had won 35 consecutive PL games in Sojka. Amazingly, McNaughton, Badmus, and Donald Brown (and John Clark) never lost a PL game at home in their four years. Had they hosted the PL championship game, I think the streak would have gone to 36.
- The other two were at Cornell, one year before they broke out with an undefeated Ivy season, and a neutral site win over Northern Illinois.

The other streak of six non-home games was in 2003-04 when they played Norfolk State (neutral), Charleston, Penn State, Robert Morris, American, and Lehigh in late December and early January. At the end of those six games, their overall record vs D1 teams was 1-11. Then they won 10 of the next 11.

One other streak of note was in 2005-06, when it was so hard to find home games. In December they played five straight on the road: Boston U, Santa Clara, Duke, Navy, and American.


Which option do you think the team would choose this year if you offered to wave a magic wand and get them three games in Sojka in lieu of the three at Diamond Head?

LaSalle Game Notes: https://goexplorers.com/news/2018/12/3/mens-b asket...

I did not realize that they were beating Nova at halftime. Mrs. Bison89 and I are expecting a good game. She has not attended many winners recently. So, I am hoping for a strong effort from the Bison.

Great production: An obnoxious dance party and then silence.

They’re terrible. Thought some of the PL announcers were bad.
