Ronald Roberts Jr. deposited 17 points, DeAndre Bembry had 13 points, and Chris Wilson added 12 for the Hawks (15-6, 5-2 A-10), who have won five of their last six games.

Derrick Gordon paced UMass (17-4, 4-3) with 21 points and Chaz Williams finished with 16 points and 10 assists. Cady Lalanne added 12 points in the Minutemen's second straight loss.

St. Joe's took a 41-25 lead into halftime and led by double digits for most of the second half. Following a Kanacevic tip-in, the Hawks led 66-53 and UMass would make its run.

The Minutemen followed with a 14-1 surge to tie the game 67-67 with just under 1 1/2 to play. Williams led the charge with eight points during the sequence.

Langston Galloway split a pair at the line with 56 seconds left to give St. Joe's the lead and Williams had a chance to put UMass up, but he also split a pair of free throws.
