La Salle releases full 2017-18 schedule

La Salle's full 2017-18 schedule is out and the Explorers are ready to travel.

The Atlantic 10 slate features tough road games at Rhode Island, Richmond and Davidson, while John Giannini's club will play a tip-off tournament in Uncasville, Connecticut, a December tournament in Northern Ireland and a home game in Reading, Pennsylvania.

The good thing: La Salle doesn't have to visit VCU or Dayton, two of the more difficult road stops in the conference.

The Explorers will also play all five of their City 6 foes.

La Salle, which finished 15-15 (9-9 A-10) last season, will be led by 6-foot-7 senior wing B.J. Johnson, a Syracuse transfer who averaged 17.6 points and 6.3 rebounds per game in his first year with the Explorers.
