PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The St. Joe’s Hawks will welcome the #21 team in the land to Hagan Arena on Saturday night in the Minutemen of UMass.
The Hawks are 14-6 this season (4-2 in the Atlantic 10) and they are coming off a 60-57 win over Dayton on Wednesday night. They actually needed some late game heroics from Langston Galloway to win at University of Dayton Arena for the first time since 2001, as the senior guard banked in a tie-breaking three with less than two seconds left.
“We wanted to try to get Langston Galloway on a play where he could turn the corner and have an option of either taking the ball up to the rim aggressively or being able to pull-up,” St. Joe’s head coach Phil Martelli tells KYW Newsradio. “A great screen by Papa Ndao, he read it real well, and he raised up confidently. Now, I’m not saying he thought that he was going to bank it in or decided to bank it in. But he raised up confidently and good things happen to good people and certainly Langston is on the top of the list of good people.”
