St. Joseph’s basketball team is now 3-0 after a successful weekend in Italy. The Hawks earned their second win of the tour with an 84-71 victory over the NCAA Tour All-Stars at the Palaberta in Montegrotto, located in Padova.

Ronald Roberts Jr. had 15 points and was named MVP of the game and Langston Galloway and Isaiah Miles each scored 13, with Papa Ndao scoring 10.

Roberts scored 23 points and Galloway contributed 16 as the Hawks scored a 99-57 win on Sunday over the NCAA Italy Tour All-Stars in Vincenza.

Galloway, who played just 20 minutes, scored all his points in the first half.

The one area the Hawks will look to improve is at the foul line, where they shot just 5 for 13 in the win.

The 6-foot-8 Roberts has led the Hawks in scoring in all three games and is averaging 17.6 points. St. Joseph’s opened with an 88-65 victory over the All-Stars Dream Team on Aug. 13.

The Hawks conclude the tour with a game on Tuesay in Como before returning to Philadelphia on Wednesday.
