PHILADELPHIA - Tickets are available for tomorrow's men's basketball game versus Fordham at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse. Since the University is on Spring Break, a number of general admission tickets are for sale by contacting the SJU ticket office at 610-660-1712.
Tomorrow's game is the regular-season finale and is "Senior Day", where Hawk co-captains Pat Carroll and John Bryant will be honored prior to the game. Also being honored are Mike Tecce, the Hawk mascot, and senior managers Chris Napoli and Kelly Ann Grace.
The Hawks are coming off a convincing 71-56 win over Atlantic 10 West Division leader George Washington on Tuesday evening. The victory gave the Hawks the top overall seed in next week's Atlantic 10 Tournament and gave SJU its fifth consecutive regular-season title with the A-10 East crown. That feat has been achieved by only one other team in conference history, Massachusetts from 1992 to 1996.
"I am very proud of this team and what it has accomplished. These guys deserve to have a full Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon to be recognized for what they've done this year," said Hawk coach Phil Martelli.
The game, which will not be televised, tips off at 2 p.m.
