The Richmond Spiders will host the La Salle Explorers for an Atlantic 10 matchup this Saturday from the Robins Center on ESPN+. UR comes in as 9.5-point home favorites, with the total hovering 140.5. Stay tuned for our La Salle vs Richmond Prediction. 

La Salle Explorers Preview

La Salle fell to 11-12 after losing to Saint Louis in Philly, 102-84. The Explorers failed to show up defensively versus the Billikens, and they’ll look to avoid a third straight loss here in Richmond. La Salle is scoring 74.6 points per game, on 42.6% shooting, while allowing 76.1 ppg, and they’re currently 14th in the Atlantic 10 with a 2-8 record in conference play. The Explorers are 2-8 over their last ten games, and they’ve gone 3-6 on the road his season. 

La Salle’s Impact Players

  • Brooklyn native Khalil Brantley has scored 18 points or more in three of the last four games,  and he leads La Salle in scoring (15.2), while grabbing 4.8 rpg.  
  • Senior guard Jhamir Brickus led the way with 24 points in the Big 5 matchup with St. Joe’s,  and he’s up to 14.3 ppg and a team-leading 5.1 apg. 
  • Veteran guard Anwar Gill went for a season-high 24 points in the SLU matchup, and he’s now third on the team at 10.3 ppg. 

Richmond Spiders Preview

Richmond moved to 16-6 after losing to VCU on the road, 63-52. The Spiders had their winning streak halted by the Rams last weekend, and they’ll look to respond swiftly here against the Explorers. Richmond is scoring 72.4 points per game, on 46.1% shooting, while allowing 64.9 ppg, and they’re currently second in the Atlantic 10 with a 8-1 record in league play. The Spiders are 9-1 over their last ten games, and they’ve gone 11-0 in Richmond this season. Richmond will take on UMass and George Washington after this one.

Richmond’s Impact Players

  • Albany native Jordan King has scored 24 points in four of the last six games, and he leads Richmond in scoring (19.1).
  • Senior center Neal Quinn nearly double-doubled in the VCU matchup, and he’s averaging 12.6 ppg, 5.9 rpg, and a team-leading 3.9 apg. 
  • Veteran forward Isaiah Bigelow snagged a career-best 16 boards in the win over Dayton, and he leads UR in rebounding (6.9), while scoring 11.1 ppg. 

La Salle vs Richmond Trends

  • LAS is 9-13 against the spread, with a 10-12 O/U record
  • UR is 16-6 ATS, with a 11-10-1 over/under record.

La Salle vs Richmond Prediction

Richmond took a tough blow last time out after dropping their Capital City Classic matchup to a resurgent VCU team, and I believe they’ll respond quickly with a struggling La Salle team coming to town. The Explorers’ lack of size and length may hurt them against a defensive-minded Spiders squad coming off of their first loss in conference play, and it may reflect on the scoreboard if it turns into a physical battle. Dayton’s loss to Virginia Commonwealth means the top spot in the A-10 will be on the line, and I believe Richmond reclaims that with a strong effort here against La Salle this Saturday at home.
