Jordan Price Leads La Salle Past UMass In A-10 Tournament

NEW YORK (AP) — Jordan Price scored 28 points and Khalid Lewis made a key 3 with 1:28 left to give La Salle a 76-69 victory against Massachusetts in the second round of the Atlantic 10 tournament on Thursday.

The ninth-seeded Explorers (17-15) avoided a three-game sweep by UMass (17-15) this season and advanced to face top-seeded Davidson on Friday in the quarterfinals.

Donte Clark led UMass with 23 points and Cady Lalanne had 17 points and 16 rebounds.

Steve Zack made a short hook to put La Salle up 62-58 with 3:30 left in the second half, but Clark's 3 drew UMass to within one with two minutes remaining.

With the shot clock winding down, Lewis turned and fired a 3 from the corner to put La Salle up 69-63.

Price helped seal the win with five free throws in the final 1:04. Zack had 13 points and 12 rebounds.
