St. Joseph's Basketball: How the Holy War Turned into a Dunk Contest
SJU Dominated the Wildcats

Anyone who orders a "7 and 7" at Brownies or the Great American Pub near St. Joseph's University will now be served with seven blocks and seven dunks.

On an electrifying evening on City Line Avenue, the Hawks of St. Joe's hosted a dunk contest while the Wildcats of Villanova spectated.  All the hype that went into this year's rendition of the Holy War certainly lived up to it, as all 4,200 strong at Hagan Arena blew the roof off the place.

From the towering blocks, monstrous dunks, nifty passes and smooth shooting, once SJU grabbed the lead, they never looked back.  Villanova came out flat from the start and had no shot at beating the Hawks on this night.
