The UMass Minutemen have been unbeatable at home. St. Joe's would like to change that.
The Hawks continue Atlantic 10 conference play on Saturday afternoon, when they visit Amherst to meet Massachusetts at 4 p.m.
St. Joe's (12-5) defeated Fordham 80-62 on Monday to move to 2-1 in the Atlantic 10 conference, a half-game behind leaders La Salle and Dayton. The Hawks were led against Fordham by sophomore Langston Galloway, whose 30 points (including 7-9 three-point shooting) tied a career high.
UMass (13-4) has won its first nine games at the Mullins Center and is looking for its best home start since 1992-93, when the Minutemen began with 11 straight home victories and ultimately earned an NCAA tournament berth. Like St. Joe's, the Minutemen are 2-1 in Atlantic 10 play and looking to remain near the top of the conference standings.
