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.

Terrell Myers


Myers, who hailed from New Haven, CT, earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference Third Team honors in 1997 after averaging 12.1 points per game, the third best mark on the SJU squad. He earned the Cy Kaselman Award as the top free-throw shooter in the Big 5, converting 80 percent. Myers was responsible for the game-winning 3-pointer which gave the Hawks the upset of #21 Tulsa early in the season. Myers, who was named to the NIT All-Tournament Team in 1996 when the Hawks reached the finals, was the 34th player in school history to post 1,000 career points. With 1,024 points, he currently ranks 40th, one spot ahead of Domani on the all-time list. Myers is also sixth among SJU's leaders in career 3-point field goals with 175.

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.
