PHILADELPHIA - Former Hawk standouts Dmitri Domani and Terrell Myers were inducted into the Saint Joseph's Men's Basketball Hall of Fame this evening, in a reception held for basketball alumni at Mandeville Hall. The 1981-82 team was also recognized on its 25th anniversary.
Neither Domani nor Myers were able to attend as both are currently playing professionally in Europe.
Domani and Myers were teammates and during their senior season in 1996-97, the Hawks won the Atlantic 10 Tournament title, advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 and ended the year ranked 12th in the Associated Press Top 25.
Domani, a native of Moscow, was the Atlantic 10's Defensive Player of the Year in 1997, while also being named to the All-Conference Second Team and the All-Big 5 Second Team. The Hawks' fourth leading scorer that season with 8.4 points per game, he became the 35th player in school history to notch 1,000 career points. At the time, he was the third Hawk ever to record 1,000 points, 500 rebounds, 250 assists and 100 steals. He currently ranks 41st on the all-time scoring list with 1,017 points.
The 1981-82 squad, which was coached by the late Jim Boyle, earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive year. The Hawks captured their second straight East Coast Conference title and were Big 5 Co-Champions. The team compiled a 25-5 record, which at that time matched the 1960-61 team's record as the second best mark in school history.
