The Rams outmatched the Hawks in the first half, heading to the locker room with a 33-25 lead as the Saint Joseph's offense struggled to get anything going.
Papa Ndao would hit a three to put the Hawks up 53-48 with 4:37 remaining in the game, and the Hawks were able to hold on for the win despite scoring just four more points the rest of the game.
Roberts led the way for the Hawks, scoring 18 points and grabbing 9 boards, while Halil Kanacevic and DeAndre' Bembry each added 12, with Kanacevic pulling down 9 rebounds as well.
Langston Galloway was held to just 6 points on 2-of-12 shooting for the evening, but the senior guard did move into fourth place on the Hawks' all-time scoring list in the process.
Saint Joseph's, now 18-7, will be back in action on Saturday when they host Fordham.
