La Salle, James Madison advance in tournament

DAYTON, Ohio — Tyrone Garland led the guard-driven offense with 22 points, and La Salle wrapped up the NCAA tournament’s First Four by getting the better of an old-fashioned shootout, beating Boise State 80-71.

It was a notable moment for the 13th-seeded Explorers (22-9), who hadn’t even been in the tournament for 21 years. Now, they head to Kansas City to play fourth-seeded Kansas State on Friday.

In the first game, A.J. Davis stepped in for James Madison’s suspended leading scorer and had 20 points, leading the Dukes to a 68-55 win over LIU Brooklyn. By Joe Kay.

James Madison (21-14), which won its first NCAA tournament game in 30 years, next takes on top-seeded Indiana, also in Dayton.
