The La Salle Explorers and the St. Bonaventure Bonnies meet Wednesday in Atlantic 10 Tournament college basketball action from Barclays Center. Let’s get into our La Salle vs St. Bonaventure prediction. Check back all season long for free college basketball picks at Pick Dawgz.

La Salle Explorers

The Explorers have had a pretty choppy year so far. After a 11-14 start, La Salle found some momentum with consecutive wins over UMass, St. Bonaventure and Rhode Island in February. It’s been a 2-2 run in the last four with losses to Duquesne and Loyola among a pair of wins over George Washington.

In the Tuesday tournament game versus the Revolutionaries, La Salle eked out a victory to stay alive. The Explorers trailed 30-23 at the break, then hit a 38-30 second half for a comeback 61-60 outcome. Tops in scoring was Jhamir Brickus with 21 points and eight rebounds.

St. Bonaventure Bonnies

Over on the Bonnies’ side, they hit a 1-4 stretch in January that dropped the team to 11-7 overall but they’ve played better since then. St. Bonaventure is 4-3 in their last seven with wins over Fordham, Davidson, UMass and Loyola alongside losses to La Salle, George Washington and St. Louis.

Matched up against Saint Louis on Saturday, the Bonnies were outscored 26-21 in the first half. St. Bonaventure didn’t end up getting any closer on a 47-44 run from there and fell 73-65 in the end. Mika Adams-Woods was the team’s top scorer with 17 points and five rebounds.


I’ll lean toward La Salle. Probably not touching this one, though. The Explorers barely pulled off a win over George Washington on Tuesday, thanks mostly to a disciplined four turnovers. Otherwise La Salle didn’t play all that well on 35.8 percent shooting and a 42-38 rebounding deficit. They’ve scored a combined 115 points over the last two games.

In the last meeting between these teams on February 21, things went much better for La Salle in a 72-59 home win. The Explorers shot a nice 51 percent from the field in that one with 30 rebounds and 20 team assists. I’d imagine a rested St. Bonaventure will perform better in this one, but I think La Salle can eke out the cover if all goes well.
