Around The A-10: Nov. 30

St. Joe’s Falls to Rider: There was only one Atlantic 10 team to play today. That team St. Joe’s lost to Rider College by a score of 81-73. St. Joe’s went out to an early lead but a late first half run put the Broncs of Rider ahead and the lead oscillated from there on out. The Hawks went on a 12-0 run but then gave up a 14-1 run en route to a loss. This game falls in line with the recent tendency for St. Joe’s to not sustain offensive success. With this defeat, the Hawks fall to 3-3 and notch their third straight loss. Their biggest issue seems to be a lack of offense from their big men with the departure of all league performer Ahmad Nivins. The Hawks have posted a pathetic 43.9 % shooting from inside the arc. St. Joe’s will face reigning Ivy league champion Cornell on Sunday in Ithaca which means it won’t get easier for St. Joe’s fans.
