Bembry has put up impressive numbers since first coming to Saint Joseph’s, but found himself as the team’s lone threat a year ago. The difference one year can make can be astounding, as many Saint Joseph’s fans have now found out.
With a roster that is largely the same from one season ago, the Hawks have done a full 180, amassing a 23-5 record entering Sunday’s contest against Saint Louis.
After 40 minutes of play, it would be a familiar scene for Hawks fans as Bembry filled the stat sheet. But with teammates that have improved vastly from a season ago, the end result was different than 2014-2015. Bembry finished with 27 points, eight rebounds and six assists to propel the Hawks to a 77-63 win, their 24th of the season.
“We played a lot of close games last year, but we lost most of them,” Bembry said. “Losing definitely helped us this year to try and win some more games. We’ve been winning most of the year. We’re confident.”
