Explorers give Giannini extension through 2011

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – LaSalle men’s basketball coach John
Giannini received a contract extension Monday that runs through the 2010-11

Giannini guided the Explorers to an 18-10 record last season, good enough for
third place in the Atlantic 10 — their highest mark since joining the
conference in 1996-96.

“Dr. John took over our men’s basketball program at a critical time and has
proven to be the right man for the job,” said athletic director Thomas

LaSalle will open the 2006-07 campaign when it hosts Saint Mary’s on Saturday.
