In case anyone didn't see the game, St. Joe's got beat at the last second on a 26 foot shot from Johnny Flynn.

The Hawks have nice length, size and athleticism, multiple guys who can shoot the three, and needless to say, are very well coached.

I would be very surprised if we do not see the Hawks in the NCAA tourney. It's just a question of whether they can beat out Xavier to win the A-10.

The Zags better enter that crackerbox gym on 11/29 with full guns blazing from the opening tip or they are going to be heading to Boston with a loss. This is the best team Martelli has had since the elite 8 bunch.

"I certainly think not being comfortable is a good thing, not only for the basketball program at Saint Joseph's and the athletic department at Saint Joseph's, but also for the school," Martelli said. "It's good to carry that little chip [on your shoulder]. We're going to scratch out our niche. We don't want you to give us anything. We want to earn everything you do give us."




So why don't the Hawks get corresponding national love? The absences from the past three NCAA Tournaments play a role. Saint Joe's also hasn't helped itself by faltering repeatedly in the Atlantic 10 tournament, when the national lights shine brightly. The Hawks haven't won the event since 1997. They lost in the final in both 2005 and '06 and were blown out by Xavier in the '04 quarterfinals to end the perfect run. This in a league that lacks the cachet of a BCS conference and lately has struggled just to get multiple teams into the NCAAs.
