Research Notes

La Salle's Ramon Galloway shot 7 of 29 from the field in the Explorers' loss at Charlotte. Galloway's 22 missed shots are the most by a player in a regulation game since Western Kentucky's Courtney Lee posted an identical 7-for-29 line in the Hilltoppers' 2008 Sweet 16 loss to UCLA.
