PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's men's basketball will open the 2008-09 season by hosting Rider at the Wachovia Center on Friday, November 14 at 7:00 p.m. It marks the first time ever that the Hawks will play a game at the Wachovia Center.

The Hawks will play the remainder of their home games this season at The Palestra, because of the expansion and renovation project that is currently in progress at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse. SJU will return to campus in 2009-10 to the Michael J. Hagan '85 Arena.

Tickets for the Rider game will be on sale through the Wachovia Center Box Office beginning on October 31. They can be purchased online at www.comcasttix.com or by calling 800-298-4200.

Starting times for all but three of Saint Joseph's games have been finalized and the schedule can be found by clicking here. Those three game times will be announced once the television arrangements are finalized.

Individual game tickets for all other Saint Joseph's home games at The Palestra will go on sale November 3. Tickets can be purchased online at www.sjuhawks.com or by calling the SJU Athletic Ticket Office at 610-660-1712.
