After beating Charlotte 80-64 on Tuesday, fifth-seeded St. Joe's has moved on to play the fourth seed Bonnies of St. Bonaventure in the second round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament.
The Hawks (20-12, 9-7) enter Friday's showdown with some work to do if they're to take part in March Madness. A win over the Bonnies likely wouldn't put them on the bubble just yet, but it would at least put St. Joe's in better position. A defeat would take away any hope of a bid.
St. Bonaventure (17-11, 10-6) is in a similar position. The Bonnies will also need to make an A-10 championship run if they're going to be a factor in the NCAA Tournament.
This will be the second time these two foes see each other in ten days. The previous game was a double overtime thriller which saw St. Bonaventure finally pull out an 89-84 victory.
It will unquestionably be a high-drama scene on Friday afternoon for these two teams; both desperate to keep their dreams alive.
