THE HAWKS
• Saint Joseph’s took a break from A-10 play to face Penn in a Big 5 game on Saturday night at the Palestra. Charlie Brown, Jr., notched his second consecutive double-double, but Saint Joseph’s couldn’t get past Penn, falling 78-70. Jared Bynum had 14 points and seven assists with Chris Clover chipping in 14 points
•The Hawks are looking to notch their second straight A-10 win, as they defeated Richmond prior to dropping the non-conference game to Penn. SJU is also seeking its first road win since Dec. 5, when it defeated Princeton
•For the first time since the start of the season, Saint Joseph’s dropped from second to fourth in the nation in turnovers per game (9.7) and has fallen to fifth in total turnovers (192). The Hawks led the nation at the start of the year and then had been holding onto the second spot for most of the season, behind Virginia, until this week
Charlie Brown is the leading scorer in the Atlantic 10, averaging 20.0 points per game, and has notched 20-plus points in the last two games
• SJU will play the next four games in Philadelphia, with three at Hagan Arena and one at A-10 and city rival La Salle

CHARLES IN CHARGE
Charlie Brown had the game you’d expect from the A-10’s leading scorer to key the comeback win over Richmond
• Brown finished with 31 points and a career-high 14 rebounds for the first double-double of his career
• In the second half, the redshirt soph connected on 6-of-9 from the field and 3-of-4 from three-point range, finishing the game with five three-pointers
• That performance came after Brown scored just nine points at Saint Louis, which was his first time without double figures since Jan. 7, 2017 against Fordam (0 points)
• Brown then notched his second straight double-double with 27 points and 12 rebounds in the loss to Penn
• He now has nine career games with 20-plus points and two with 30-plus points

CHANGING IT UP
Lorenzo Edwards will make the first start of his career in place of Taylor Funk. Edwards had a seven-point, eight-rebound effort against Penn
Markell Lodge will start his third straight game for Anthony Longpré (concussion protocol). Longpré has missed last two games and his return is undetermined
• Because of the injuries to Longpré, Lamarr Kimble and Pierfrancesco Oliva, the Hawks now have seven full scholarship players available to play

PUTTING UP SHOTS
Charlie Brown has totalled 44 field goal attempts in the past two games, including 23 against Penn
Phil Martelli said, “ He’s playing the game easier. His teammates are getting him the ball and I like the fact that he’s getting shot attempts.”
• As a team, the Hawks took a season-high 72 shots vs. Penn, making 29 (40.3%), and attempted 24 three-pointers, making only three (12.5%)
• SJU is averaging 59 field goal attempts and 26 three-point attempts per game

CHARLIE'S WEEK
Charlie Brown, Jr., has earned Player of the Week honors in both the Atlantic 10 and the Big 5 for January 28, marking the second time this year he's earned the weekly award in each league
• The redshirt sophomore forward averaged 29.0 points and 13.0 rebounds in a 1-1 week, while shooting 45.5 percent from the field (20-of-44) and 92.3 percent (12-for-13) from the foul line

LOOKING AHEAD
• SJU will be staying in Philly for four consecutive games, including a crosstown trip to La Salle on Feb. 5
• The Hawks begin the stretch by hosting UMass on Saturday, Feb. 2
