NORFOLK, VA - The Saint Joseph's men's basketball team returns to action after a break for final exams traveling to Old Dominion on Wednesday, December 22. Game time is 7 p.m. for the contest which will be televised in Philadelphia on CN8 and in Virginia on Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic.

The 3-3 Hawks haven't played since a December 11 loss at San Francisco. Old Dominion is 10-1 after Monday night's 88-56 win over Longwood.

For the Hawks, leading scorer Chet Stachitas is possible for the game after suffering an ankle sprain at San Francisco and will be a game-time decision. Junior forward Dave Mallon could see his first action of the year after missing the first six games with a stress fracture in his foot.

Stachitas tops the team in scoring with 13.7 points per game, while Dwayne Jones is averaging 12.7 points and 12.0 rebounds. In the NCAA statistics, Jones ranks fourth in the nation in rebounding and 10th in blocked shots with his average of 3.3 per game. Pat Carroll is averaging 10.8 points.

The game can also be heard on the Saint Joseph's Sports Network on WPEN-Radio (950 AM) with Tom McCarthy and Renie Shields calling the action. SJSN's Joe Lunardi will be providing the analysis on CN8's telecast.
