La Salle to face OSU in Classic
Oklahoma State will face La Salle in the All-College Basketball Classic, filling a final piece of its non-conference schedule.

The game, set for 7:30 p.m. as the second game of a doubleheader, will be played Dec. 21 at the Ford Center.

La Salle, of the Atlantic 10 Conference, finished 18-13 a year ago. The Explorers return their top seven scorers, led by second-team All-Atlantic 10 pick Rodney Green. The 6-foot-5 senior guard averaged 17.6 points and 4.9 rebounds a year ago, while handing out 105 assists.

Cowboys coach Travis Ford is quite familiar with La Salle, having faced the Explorers five times while at UMass. Ford went 3-2 in those matchups.

OU will face UTEP in the opener of the All-College.
