St Josephs Hawks Basketball Tickets

St Josephs Hawks Basketball tickets

St. Joseph's Hawks Basketball Schedule

The St. Joseph's Hawks are part of the proud Philadelphia college basketball tradition and as such have legions of dedicated fans who are always eager to support the Hawks. This season St. Joe's is having another great season behind the leadership of senior Langston Galloway who is also the Hawks' leading scorer. They are currently tied for second in the A-10 with VCU, trailing only the #10 ranked St. Louis Billikens. Be sure to come out and support the Hawks in their final home games as they are jostling for a higher seed in the NCAA Tournament.

There are three more home games on the Hawks' schedule starting with a February 22nd match up against the Fordham Rams. Three days later the Dayton Flyers come to Michael J. Hagan Arena in hopes of improving their tournament resume with a win against St. Joe's. The regular season closes out with a home game against Big 5 rivals the La Salle Explorers. Both teams will need a strong finish to the season if they hope to make the NCAA Tournament and you can expect this to be one of the most exciting games of the year.

St. Joseph's Hawks NBA Players

The Atlantic 10 Conference is one of the toughest in NCAA basketball, thanks to teams like the St. Joseph's Hawks. The Hawks are relentless on the basketball court, whether they're playing on home turf at the Hagan Arena or are out strutting their stuff on the road. The St. Joseph's ball team is a powerhouse for producing NBA players, and the hoopsters pack the grandstands at Hagan Arena whenever rival teams like the Temple Owls or Villanova Wildcats come to play.

St. Joseph's basketball has churned out several top players over the last few decades, including a string of players who wore the No. 4 jersey: George Senesky, Jim Lynam, Paul Senesky and Bill Oakes. This quartet of players is credited for the retirement of the No. 4 jersey, and the Hawks have also retired No. 14 for Jameer Nelson, No. 30 for Cliff Anderson and No. 44 for Mike Bantom. Nelson, drafted to the Orlando Magic in 2004, is one of the latest NBA picks to come out of St. Joseph's in the first round in the 2000s, the other being Delonte West in 2004 to the Boston Celtics.

St. Joseph's Hawks Basketball Tournament History

The crimson and gray St. Joseph's Hawks have been a constant presence in the NCAA Tournament since the late '50s, when the Hawks first popped up on the map of college basketball strongholds. The Hawks are known for their athletic prowess, but despite their bevy of NCAA Tournament appearances, the only Final Four action the Hawks have seen, in 1961, was removed by the NCAA due to a gambling scandal. Still, the St. Joseph's basketball team remains a constant name on March Madness brackets, with current coach Phil Martelli leading the Hawks to several tournament berths during his tenure.

The scarlet and gray of the St. Joseph's Hawks is prevalent at every home basketball game at Hagan Arena, and with the Hawks looking for another NCAA Tournament berth this year, home matchups against A-10 competitors are guaranteed to be packed full of thrills -- on the court as well as in the fan section. Hawks fans can check out the excitement heading to the arena this season and cheer on the team to another A-10 victory.

St. Joseph's Hawks Trivia

The St. Joseph's Hawks basketball team has more traditions and memorable grandstand events than most other NCAA squads, and this makes for memorable and exciting basketball games regardless of the final score whenever St. Joseph's basketball ignites at the Hagan Arena in Philly. The Hawks fan section's chant "The Hawk Will Never Die!" is a powerful one, and was even named "the most defiant cheer in college sports" in Sports Illustrated's article "The 100 Things You Gotta Do Before You Graduate (Whatever the Cost)" in 2003.

The fan section is also known for being led by the Drum, a tradition of drummers that has been passed on and leads the student section through the school's fight songs and chants. School spirit runs rampant at St. Joe's when basketball is in session, and the arena at Hagan comes alive with songs that are played at every home game, with "When the Hawks Go Flying In" leading the force before each game, and "Mine Eyes" immediately following each home game. The SJU Hawks are certainly not lacking in the fan department, and the basketball team has the talent to complement this exciting camaraderie perfectly.

St. Joseph's Hawks Basketball Rivalries

When it comes to rivalries for the St. Joseph's Hawks, there is no shortage of healthy competition. The Hawks have a fierce rival in the Villanova University Wildcats, which is so thick it even has a name -- the Holy War -- and the Wildcats basketball team also brings fans flocking whenever teams like the Temple Owls, LaSalle Explorers or Penn Quakers step onto the court at the Hagan Arena. The Philadelphia-housed Hawks are undoubtedly one of the most popular college teams in the region, and basketball action comes alive all throughout basketball season, when the 4,200 capacity Hagan Arena sees the Hawks on the court for home matchups.

Fans that haven't yet been to St. Joseph's basketball games at the Hagan Arena on the St. Joe's campus in Philadelphia haven't really lived the ultimate SJU basketball experience. The student section at Hagan Arena makes up more than a quarter of the arena's entire capacity, and the grandstands are in a constant state of excitement and cheer at every Hawks basketball game, and especially when the team takes on rivals like the Villanova Wildcats. Saint Joseph basketball is a big contributor to the "Double Dip," an occurrence whenever the Hawks win the same day the Wildcats lose. Fans pack the grandstands at Hagan Arena to witness a St. Joe's victory over Villanova on the basketball court, and there's nothing like catching a home Hawks game when the team is playing the Wildcats.
