ST. JOSEPHS RUMORS & GOSSIP
After Halil Kanacevic fouled out with just under four minutes left in overtime, the Hawks battled but were not able to overcome the loss and fell to UConn 89-81 in OT. Shabazz Napier and co. took over and stuffed every opportunity the Hawks had in the extra period.

Before the Atlantic 10 tournament, it was believed that St. Joseph's needed at least one win to keep its hopes for a bid to the NCAA tournament alive.
The Hawks went a number of gigantic steps better.
With all five starters playing 37 or more minutes Sunday, St. Joseph's defeated Virginia Commonwealth, 65-61, to win the Atlantic 10 championship at the Barclays Center.
St. Joe’s entered the weekend on the NCAA Tournament’s “bubble”. This is no longer the case after their impressive run to win the Atlantic 10 Tournament title was capped off with a 65-61 win over Virginia Commonwealth
The Hawks were lead by Langston Galloway and his 19 points. Ronald Roberts, Jr. also had a big game, scoring 15 points and grabbing eleven rebounds.
BROOKLYN, N.Y.—All year long, Phil Martelli has deflected questions about his team’s lack of depth.
Six players routinely log minutes for St. Joseph’s, which defeated St. Bonaventure this afternoon to reach the Atlantic 10 title game. Those six players haven’t rested much since the Hawks opened conference tournament play against Dayton on Friday.

Langston Galloway’s three pointer with under 20 seconds left gave the Hawks a 69-76 lead over Dayton and lifted them to victory 70-67, cementing their spot in the NCAA Tournament. It will most likely be the Hawks first appearance since the 2007-2008 season.
Galloway set the tone for the Hawks after he buried a three pointer for the teams first points. He carried the team offensively...
SAINT JOSEPH'S has played its way into the NCAA Tournament. If the selections had been yesterday, the Hawks would have been well into the field, perhaps as a 10 or 11 seed.
After winning 83-74 at St. Bonaventure Saturday, its 17th win in 20 games, SJU (21-7, 11-3 Atlantic 10) also was very close to clinching a bye to the A-10 Tournament quarterfinals.
Given that the at-large...
Despite Langston Galloway’s scoring average (nearly 14 points per game) and perimeter scoring (39 percent from three) a year ago, the guard from Saint Joseph’s had an underwhelming junior season. His efficiency rating — 110.9 — was the lowest it had been during his three seasons on Hawk Hill, and with a large percentage of returning minutes remaining in 2014, there was an...
Langston Galloway scored 24 points - including a pair of free throws in the final half-minute - and DeAndre Bembry 18 as St. Joseph's defeated Virginia Commonwealth 69-62 Saturday night.
The Hawks (16-7, 6-3 Atlantic 10), who played eight in the game, opened some breathing room with a Galloway 3-pointer and a free throw for a 38-30 lead after halftime.

Saint Louis coach Jim Crews apologized for not having the right words to describe one of the best teams in the nation.
''You know how boring I am,'' he said.
His Billikens more than make up for it on the court, using a smothering defense that always has a hand in the face and eyes on the ball.
And now, a spot in the record book.
Rob Loe scored 17 points and Jordair...

It wasn’t pretty. But the Hawks got the job done.
The Hawks defeated Rhode Island 61-57 in a back and fourth affair on Wednesday night. St. Joe’s was lead by Ronald Roberts, Jr, who had 20 points and nine rebounds.
The Hawks held the Rams to 38.6 percent shooting from the field and 18.8 percent shooting from three. But the Hawks were not much better themselves. They shot 44.2...
Chris Wilson and Ronald Roberts Jr. scored 19 points each to lead Saint Joseph's to a 73-67 comeback win over Boston University on Sunday.
Trailing 35-28 at the break, the Hawks (7-4) fell 11 points behind early in the second half before steadily closing the gap, taking the lead on a tip-in by Halil Kanacevic with 7:04 left and then pulling away with an 11-2 run. Langston Galloway...

A simple rule of thumb is if you are going to flip the double bird to an opposing team’s crowd, you better make sure that you win the game. St. Joe’s forward Halil Kanacevic unfortunately didn’t follow this rule and his double bird actually was the catalyst in a 65-61 loss to Villanova. Kanacevic was having a rough night from the field, but managed to make a big three pointer...
Saint Joseph's has suspended guard Carl Jones for three games because of an unspecified violation of the university's community standards.
The Hawks announced the suspension before the start of Thursday's exhibition game against Wheeling Jesuit. Jones will also miss Monday's home opener against Yale and a game against Notre Dame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center...
