PHILADELPHIA - Dear Season Ticket Holder: I hope you are having an enjoyable summer. Your support of the men's basketball team this past season was tremendous. The Hawk spirit and drive was on the big stage once again and was most impressive.
The Hawks' out-of-conference opponents for the 2005-06 season are set. They will encounter the likes of Lafayette, Fairfield, Davidson, Drexel, Ohio State as well as six other teams which were in the 2005 NCAA Tournament - Kansas, Bucknell, St. Mary's, Gonzaga, Penn, and Villanova.
As you know the conference schedule is usually set in late summer months and this year we'll be adding two more schools to the conference (Saint Louis and Charlotte) which will make the league more competitive than ever.
Once again, thank you for your support and stay tuned for messages via the website (sjuhawks.com) over the summer about next year's conference schedule, season ticket information, 50th Anniversary of the Hawk and the Big 5, as well as upcoming events. I look forward to seeing you back on Hawk Hill in the Fall.
