Kanacevic finished the night with six points to go along with 15 rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks. The sophomore helped St. Joe's finish with a decided 42-31 rebounding edge over the visiting Minutemen, and push their conference mark to 6-5 on the year.
Junior guard Carl Jones added 17 points for the Hawks, who shot just 43.9% from the field and hit only two thirds of their free throw attempts. Langtson Galloway added 15 points as well.
