6-2 point guard Sam Mills (200lbs) added 11 pts, 5rebs, 4 assists and 2 steals on 23 January as La Salle University took down #9 ranked Butler University in front of a sold out home crowd at Tom Gola Arena, Philadelphia. Nine of his 11 points came in the second frame, most notably a floater which put the Explorers up 52-51.

The Explorers held the lead until Butler's Andrew Smith converted a nifty layup with 8.4 seconds left, giving the Bulldogs a one point advantage. La Salle advanced the ball quickly and Ramon Galloway hit a layup at the 2.7 second mark and a half court heave from Butler's Roosevelt Jones drew unfriendly iron, as the La Salle stole the win.

And in the NCAA D2, 7Rundell Mauge (270lbs) nearly finished with a double-double of 9pts and a team-high 9 rebs on 16 January. He also added 3 blocked shots and 2 assists in the game as Fort Hays State University defeated Southwest Baptist 74-59.

With the win, the Fort Hays State men's basketball team moved to 10-4 overall and 4-2 in the MIAA conference. In addition the Tigers moved into a tie for second place in the conference and gave head coach Mark Johnson his 236th win at Fort Hays State, passing Bill Morse for sole possession of second place on the all-time wins list at FHSU.

Meanwhile in the NJCAA, 6-5 Tyler Washington (216lbs) had 14ps and 7rebs as Hostos Community College scored a convincing 103-67 victory over Ulster County Community College on 22 January in the Region 15 action. Ranked 9th Nationally the Caimans are now 16-2 overall and sit in second place in Region 15 with a 12-1 Region record and first in the CUNY Conference with a 5-0 record.

In a previous game on 17 January, Tyler Washington finished with 9 points as Hostos Community College defeated NJCAA Regional XV foe Dutchess Community College 102-52. And earlier on 15 January, Washington chipped in with 13pts as the Caimans registered a hard fought 66-62 road win against The Borough of Manhattan Community College Panthers.
