ST. BONAVENTURE, NY (1/23/04) - The third-ranked Saint Joseph's Hawks will look to etch their names into school history on Saturday, January 24, when they visit St. Bonaventure. With a win, the Hawks can set the record for the longest winning streak in school history. Click here for gamenotes, and streaming audio. Saint Joseph's current 16-game winning streak is tied as the longest in the program's history with Dr. Jack Ramsay's 1964-65 team. The Hawks' current ranking of third in the nation is the highest ranking since the 1965-66 team was also ranked third on January 18, 1966. The Hawks and Stanford are the only two remaining unbeaten teams in the nation. Stanford's next game is also tomorrow against USC. Jameer Nelson continues to make his push for the National Player of the Year honors, while backcourt mate Delonte West has gained quite a bit of recognition for his play in the past few games. West converted 19 consecutive field goals and made 30 straight free throws before those streaks came to an end in the UMass game. After this game, the Hawks get a well-deserved break next week and return to action to battle local rivals Temple (Jan. 31) and Villanova (Feb. 2) on the road.
