Saint Joseph's is 21-0 and 10-0 in the Atlantic 10.

The Hawks fought off the Sports Illustrated "cover jinx" on Wednesday evening when they defeated defending A10 champion Dayton. Earlier that day, the latest issue of Sports Illustrated hit the newsstands with Hawks' star Jameer Nelson pictured on the cover. Nelson and the Hawks are the cover story in the magazine and it marks the first-time ever that Saint Joseph's has been featured on the cover of the national publication.

Delonte West led the way against Dayton with 24 points, while Nelson chipped in 16 and Tyrone Barley had 14 points.

Rhode Island enters the game with a 14-10 record and 3-7 mark in Atlantic 10 play. The Rams handed the Hawks one of their seven losses last season.
