PHILADELPHIA (AP) Langston Galloway tied his career high with 30 points and Saint Joseph's defeated Fordham 80-62 on Wednesday night.

The Hawks made 12 of 24 from 3-point range and Galloway led the charge by making 7 of 9 from long distance. Saint Joseph's (12-5, 2-1 Atlantic-10 Conference), shot 49 percent (25 of 51) from the field.

C.J. Aiken added 15 points, Carl Jones had 11 and Ronald Roberts grabbed 12 rebounds for the Hawks, who have won seven of their past nine games and surpassed last year's win total.
