    St. Joe’s is currently 1 - 10 on the season and 0 - 5 in A10 play.

    History: Including tournament play DP is 6 - 2 against the Hawks.

    Wins: Albany
    Losses: Auburn, Kansas, Drexel, Villanova, Tennessee, VCU, Rhode Island, St. Bonaventure, Davidson

    Stats: https://sjuhawks.com/sports/mens-basketball/stats/2020/pdf

    St. Joe’s best player and preseason A10 second team Ryan Daly (17.2 ppg & 6.2 reb) has been gone since the fifth game of the year. Their starting lineup has been in flux all year. 6’8” Taylor Funk (16.1 ppg & 5.6 reb), and 6’5” Jack Forest (10.0 ppg) are the current statistical leaders although Cameron Brown (8.7 ppg) has played well lately. Jordan Hall (7.6 ppg), Dahmir Bishop (8.6 ppg), and Douglas Myles (5.6 ppg) are among others who have started lately.

    St. Joe’s averages 70.5 points per game while giving up 85.3. The Hawks shoot 40.7% from the floor and 28.8% from 3. Opponents are shooting 47.0% from the field and 38.1% from 3. The Hawks shoot 70.9% from the free throw line. They have been out rebounded opponents by an astounding 10.4 boards per game.

    The game is on ESPN+.

    My prediction: St. Joe’s was picked 12th in preseason polls ahead of only LaSalle and Fordham. The Hawks were not much to fear with Daly, without him they are that much worse. They don’t shoot, rebound, or defend well. Seven of their losses are by double digits and the average losing margin of almost 15 points per game is among the worst in the nation. If we can’t beat St. Joe's we should be relegated to DIII.

    1-9 is terrible but then I look at their loses and wonder what our record would look like against that schedule. I’m guessing we’d be 2-8.

    3-7 tops, and that’s giving us a reasonable chance of beating Davidson.

    Joe’s is getting shellacked by a team we beat by 30+

    If Mason loses Wednesday, Dave needs to be fired on the spot and I’m not even joking.

    Almost forgot there was a game tomorrow. Talent wise we should win this game by 20+. I’m ready for a nail biter. Not sure if I’ll be attending or not, did this get picked up for cable or just streaming?

    Although a loss would be most beneficial to achieving more important goal...

    It speaks volumes about the state of our program when the thread for tonight's game has had no comments in the last two days.
