The statistic was readily shared with Zach Crisler off La Salle’s iPad program, so he’s all too happy to pass it along.On 20 made baskets against Bonner & Prendergast Wednesday night, the Explorers handed out 13 assists, led by the five dimes that the 6-foot-9 Crisler distributed. When the junior forward, after a 61-50 win, opined that, “You couldn’t ask for a better team win that that,” he had the facts to back it up.
That’s before he got into specifics. About the no-look pass that Sean Simon tossed to Kahlil Diarrah for a corner 3-pointer that put La Salle up five in the fourth quarter. Or the pass that Diarrah, while falling out of bounds, directed volleyball-style toward Titus Beard for an open triple. Or Crisler threading a pass to Diarrah for a lay-in that put the Explorers (10-6, 3-4 Catholic League) up seven with three minutes to play and on the way to handing Bonner & Prendie (13-3, 6-1) its first league loss.
