PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The St. Joseph’s women’s basketball team will be on the road on Thursday night, visiting Massachusetts in Atlantic 10 action.
The Hawks have just two regular season games remaining as they look to return to the NCAA Tournament for a second straight year, but they are coming off a rough 82-56 loss at Dayton on Sunday.
“We didn’t play our best against Dayton,” St. Joe’s head coach Cindy Griffin tells KYW Newsradio. “And certainly they did and they are capable of doing that.”
Despite that defeat, the Hawks are 20-7 and 9-5 in the Atlantic 10. That conference mark has them in fifth place, but just a half-game out of third.
