A first-year guard is excelling with the Explorers men’s basketball team. An alumnus appeared on Jeopardy! The women’s basketball team rallied in support of their coach and his young daughter. And faculty spoke to reporters about COVID-19 and inflation.
Review a few of La Salle University’s media highlights from January:
Cory Anotado’s love of gameshows began as a child, watching them on TV alongside his grandmother. What followed? He founded a gameshow news blog, appeared on several of the shows, and scored an appearance on Jeopardy! Philly Voice chronicled Anotado’s story.
Khalil Brantley, ’25, is playing more—and playing well—for the Explorers in his first season at 20th and Olney. “He has the swagger and the confidence, and he’s the kind of dude that lives for this,” men’s basketball coach Ashley Howard told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The Explorers’ Jan. 23 win over Richmond did more than extend the team’s winning streak. It also served as a fundraiser and awareness-generator around pediatric cancer. The AP spoke to coach Mountain MacGillivray, whose young daughter is in remission from leukemia.
