The Hawks don't begin the season in earnest until Monday night against Yale, but they got a warm-up tonight at home against Wheeling Jesuit. SJU took care of business, downing Wheeling Jesuit 71-50, paced by 19-point outings from juniors Ronald Roberts and Langston Galloway.
Galloway, a 6'2 junior shooting guard, shot 5-8 from behind the arc on his way to 19 points. While Galloway did his damage from the perimeter, Roberts did his inside, going a perfect 7-7 from the field and 5-7 from the line.
Saint Joseph's also got strong performances from C.J. Aiken (13 points, 7 rebounds) and Chris Wilson (10 points, 7 assists). No other Hawk scored more than three points.
Immediately prior to tonight's game, Saint Joseph's announced that senior point guard Carl Jones would be serving a three-game suspension for a "violation of the University's community standards." Jones missed tonight, and will miss the Yale and Notre Dame games.
Hawk Hill Hardwood will continue our Player Profile series tomorrow, then have a Yale preview article up on Sunday.
