The St. Joseph's Hawks recorded a crucial win over the No. 23 Temple Owls last Saturday. The win put them within striking distance of a first round bye in the 2012 Atlantic 10 Men's Basketball Tournament, at just half a game behind the St. Bonaventure Bonnies and the Xavier Musketeers.
Luckily for the Hawks, they will face the Bonnies on the road in their season finale. A win, coupled with a loss by the UMass Minutemen in one of their final two conference games, would give St. Joe's the 4-seed and an extra day to prep for the winner of the 5/12 game.
