Ramon Galloway scored 31 points, 12 during an 18-4 run in the second half Saturday night, and La Salle beat a top 25 team for the second game in a row for the first time in 60 years, upsetting No. 19 VCU 69-61.

The upstart Explorers (14-5, 4-2 Atlantic 10), who edged No. 9 Butler on Wednesday night, registered consecutive victories against ranked teams for the first time since the 1952 NIT tournament, when they beat three in a row. They are off to their best start since the 1990-91 team started the year 14-4.

Juvonte Reddic had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Rams (16-5, 4-2), who lost for the second time in three days after a 13-game winning streak. VCU blew a 7-point lead in the last minute and lost in overtime at Richmond on Thursday.

Treveon Graham added 13 points and 12 rebounds, but shot just 4 for 17.
