In their first game back from a Covid break, the Saint Joseph’s Hawks upset the La Salle Explorers with a 91-82 overtime win. This was the second game between these two Big 5 rivals. The game was also the first conference win for a struggling Saint Joe’s Hawks. The Hawks had a 0-9 Atlantic 10 record heading into the game.
