PHILADELPHIA - Saint Joseph's Hall of Fame coach Jack McKinney will be signing copies of a new book he co-authored entitled, "Tales from Saint Joseph's Hardwood: The Hawk Will Never Die!" on December 10 prior to the men's basketball game with Ohio State at the Palestra at 1 p.m.
The book, which makes a great Christmas gift for the Hawk fan, is also available for sale at the Saint Joseph's Bookstore.
McKinney co-authored the book with Robert Gordon, while Hawks coach Phil Martelli contributed the forward.
The book recounts the storied history of Hawk basketball through the eyes of the coach who compiled 144 wins in eight seasons and led Saint Joseph's to five NCAA Tournament berths.
