The Penn Quakers host the St. Joseph’s Hawks in non-conference college basketball action.

The Saint Joseph’s Hawks are gunning for back to back wins after downing Richmond 74-70 as a 3.5 point home favorite on Wednesday.

Saint Joseph’s trailed by 12 points at the break before dominating the second half 43-27 behind 43.1% from the floor including 12-28 from distance.

Charlie Brown Jr. lifted the Hawks with a game high 31 points and 14 rebounds with Taylor Funk adding 12 points and five pulls.

Jared Bynum gave St. Joes another 12 points and four helpers followed by a nine point, ten rebound performance from Chris Clover.

The Penn Quakers snapped a four game slide with a 77-70 victory against Big Five rival Temple a week ago as a seven point underdog.

Penn jumped to a ten point lead at the intermission and kept Temple at arm’s length the rest of the way behind 52.8% sharpshooting.

AJ Brodeur did everything for the Quakers with 16 points, seven rebounds and five helpers with Devon Goodman adding 15 points, three yanks and four assists.

Penn saw 14 points from Jakub Mijakowski followed by Jake Silpe and Bryce Washington with a combined 17 points and ten rebounds.

St. Joseph’s Hawks are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 vs. Ivy League and  are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall and  are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games. Penn Quakers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Atlantic 10 and  are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games and  are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings and St. Joseph’s Hawks are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings.

I think both teams will be able to score some points so something small on the over…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
