Season ticket holders will be able to pick up their tickets on Thursday night, beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the Rec Center. Food and entertainment will be provided.

Any season ticket holders not able to attend the ticket pickup on Thursday, can also obtain their packets on Tuesday evening prior to the regular-season opener. Ticket pickup will again begin at 5 p.m. that night in the Rec Center.

The Widener squad will be familiar to new Hawk assistant coach David Duda, as he came to Saint Joseph's after serving as the head coach of Widener for the last eight seasons. Widener is also the alma mater of head coach Phil Martelli, who now begins his 12th season with the Hawks.
