TWO BIRDS, ONE PRETZEL
To celebrate the rare Philadelphia doubleheader with the Hawks home game and the Eagles' divisional playoff round game at the Saints, SJU Athletics and Philly Pretzel Factory have partnered to hand out FREE soft pretzels to the first 500 fans entering Hagan Arena in their Hawks or Eagles gear (or both!). So join the fun and be sure to arrive early for your free pretzel.
One of the pillars of the Hawks' program has been defense, and this season is no different. Saint Joseph's enters Sunday currently second in the Atlantic 10, and 39 nationally, in points per game allowed at 56.9.
