St. Joseph’s center C.J. Aiken is out for tonight’s game against Fordham at Hagan Arena. Aiken has a back and left wrist injury, although he said it was mainly the wrist which was re-aggravated when he took a spill during Wednesday’s 70-53 loss at St. Louis.

Aiken said he hopes to return soon. The Hawks final two regular season games are Wednesday at home against Fordham and next Saturday at Charlotte.

Aiken is averaging 10.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and leads the Atlantic 10 with 2.9 blocked shots.
