Yes it’s true, the Hawk, which will never die, went up to Storrs last night and beat UConn at Gampel Pavilion.
Dan Hurley’s Huskies are a far cry from the Jim Calhoun and Kevin Ollie title-winning squads, but for St. Joe’s to get a win up there is rather significant, especially when you consider the fact that SJU was coming off a 13-point loss to Old Dominion with Billy Lange coaching his third game for the Hawks.
Ryan Daly ripped off 30 points while Hurley said this after the game:

It’s not your grandmother’s UConn.
Nice win for the Hawks, who were up 42 to 18 at one point. Looks like they’ll be fine in the post-Phil Martelli era.
