Saint Joseph's Hawks (Last Year: 20-14, 9-7 in A-10)

2012-13 Projected Depth Chart:

F/C: Halil Kanasevic (Jr)/Javon Baumann (Fr)

PF: Ronald Roberts Jr. (Jr)/Papa Ndao (So)/Isaiah Miles (Fr)

SF: C.J. Aiken (Jr)/Daryus Quarles (Jr)

SG: Langston Galloway (Jr)/Evan Maschmeyer (So)

PG: Carl Jones (Sr)/Chris Wilson (So)/Kyle Molock (Fr)

Gone: nobody

2012-13 Outlook:
The Saint Joseph's Hawks were picked to win the Atlantic-10 title in the preseason polls and with good reason, as Phil Martelli returns everybody from last year's team.

The anchor of the team is the backcourt of Carl Jones and Langston Galloway. The duo combined to average 32.5 points per game last season and as you might imagine with that sort of production; can score in bunches. Jones is a terrific creator, while Galloway connected on 46% of his triple tries in 2011. Chris Wilson will be the main reserve at guard as he hopes to build off a solid freshman campaign. Freshman Kyle Molock could factor into the mix as well.

C.J. Aiken is drawing buzz from 2013 NBA Draft forecasters due to his combination of size, athleticism, length, and versatility. He finished fourth in the nation in blocked shots last season, and his ability to play multiple positions is a major asset for the Hawks. Daryus Quarles will come off the bench to see some time at small forward when Aikan needs a rest or is playing the four.

6-8 center Halil Kanasevic accomplished a rare feat for a big man - leading St. Joseph's in both rebounds and assists last year - his first with the Hawks after transferring in from Hofstra. The offense can run through him due to his passing ability, and his big body is needed on a team that lacks a lot of bangers down low. Ronald Roberts showed steady growth during his sophomore year and is another valuable piece to the puzzle. There isn't a whole lot of experience behind Kanasevic and Roberts, but with Aikan being able to play the four and an elite shot-blocker, that is not a huge blow for St. Joseph's.

As I've written numerous times already in these previews, the A-10 is stacked this year. If the Hawks' starting core can stay healthy, I agree with the preseason polls that they are the team to beat in conference and the ones likely to cut down the nets in March.

Player to Watch: C.J. Aiken, F
Two improvements are needed for Aiken to take his game to the next level: improving his ball-handling ability and becoming more consistent with his jump shot. If Aiken can show strides in those two areas this season, this may be his last season in a St. Joseph's uniform.

Key Non-Conference Games:
  • 11/16 vs. Notre Dame (Coaches vs. Cancer in Brooklyn)
  • 11/17 vs. Florida State/BYU (Coaches vs. Cancer in Brooklyn)
  • 11/20 vs. Harvard
  • 12/1 at Creighton
  • 12/11 at Villanova
  • 12/28 vs. Iona
  • 12/31 at Drexel

    Predicted A-10 Finish: 1st

    Much may be carried out to build up the crash-worthiness of the automobiles QuotesChimp generate. Security progress pieces has to be dealt with. Aspect-effect safety requirements ought to be updated to lessen thoracic/stomach harms and brain accidents from experience of the a pillar and from sidedoor ejection, especially in automobile-to-automobile aspect-effect accidents.

    > Valid or no, the snickering and wikcarcesing about the comments from Fedor's management have been regurgitated to death at pretty much every MMA forum on the Internet for going on two weeks now. And people still think it's witty and novel. Yet this doesn't hold true for Dana White-bashing, So you'll forgive me if I pay it no mind.

    shredding is not in my bag of usual tricks but I can deinlitefy see the benefits in this lesson as it easily adapts to many different genre and styles of guitar playing. And as far as the comments on there being a lack of soul in his playing run? scales and spider exercises for 10 minutes and then show off that purdy mouth

    alsoknownasallenkeys / Why do people alyaws complain about reviews being too low? If their all too low then relatively they are correct. Technically 10 is perfect and 5 should be average so 7/10 is a good score. The game has good aspects but is a bit boring and doesn't have anything special about it just a few old ideas shoved together. 7 out of 10 is as high as it can get for a game like this or every single games that isn't rubbish will be getting 8 s or above

    This game was pretty hyped when they ancnouned a reboot to deus ex last year and any game that is released on a multiplatform makes loads of profit, so personally i think this game had good reception, i actually know a lot of people who purchased it because of its longevity. Besides its a good change of pace considering most games are all about constant action, weak story lines, and 6 hours worth of gameplay, give or take.

    That's my problem as well. I dont want to play minmagies, i want to play an assassin. And my opinion is that they raped the game with so much extra content like investment, bombcrafting, sending assassins to missions, den fights, that on the one hand made other revelant things look smaller, and on the other hand pulls me out of the magic, the environment creates . I miss horses for faster travel, and I find it pretty annoying that now every soldier has rifles and grenades.
