Despite coughing up an 18-point lead and giving Kansas State one last chance to tie at the buzzer, 13-seed La Salle survived and won its second game of the 2013 NCAA Tournament. As a reward, the Explorers get 12-seed Ole Miss in the next round.
What better way to set the stage than for one of La Salle’s players to mock Ole Miss’ Marshall Henderson? Right after the Explorers had won, sophomore guard D.J. Peterson ran to mid court doing Henderson’s now famous “landshark salute”.
I can’t wait for this matchup.
