Although Marist seemed lost against the Hawks' defense, junior guard Chavaughn Lewis posted 26 points and had 5 rebounds and 5 assists as well. Outside of Chavaughn and forward Jay Bowie, who finished with 11 points, Marist struggled to find any offense in their loss.
Saint Joseph's will face an incredibly tough task ahead on Saturday, facing off against All-American forward Doug McDermott and the Creighton Blue Jays. Last season, the Hawks looked lost against Creighton in Omaha, but they will look to repeat their 2011-2012 performance when they conquered the Fighting McDermotts at the Hagan Arena. Hopefully the Hawks will go to 3-0 after Saturday and look to take control of the Atlantic 10.
Next Game: Saturday November 16 7pm
