The Union lost a significant part of the team when midfielder Justin Mapp was selected in today’s expansion draft by the Montreal Impact.
Major League Soccer teams were only able to lose one player.
The 27-year Mapp has been with the Union since being acquired from the Chicago Fire for allocation money on June 26, 2010.
St. Joseph's sophmore forward Daryus Quarles, who missed the Hawks three games in the Charleston (SC) Classic with a foot injury, has been cleared to return to action.
According to school offiicals, Quarles was evaluated on Monday and doctors determined that the foot was stable so he was cleared to resume playing in practice and games.
St. Joseph (3-1) visits Iona (2-1) on Wednesday.
The Union have announced their protected list for Wednesday’s expansion draft, but among the bigger surprises is who isn’t on the list.
Freddy Adu, who came to the team with such fanfare in August is among the 12 players the Union left unprotected.
Adu, who was hampered by an ankle injury late in the season, will be costly if the Montreal Impact selects him. His 2011 salary was listed at $594,884 by the MLS Players Union.
St. Joseph’s junior guard Carl Jones has learned that lessons come from games regardless of the outcome.
What Jones has learned from the Hawks 3-1 start that includes a win over Georgia Tech of the ACC, is that the Hawks appear to be an improved program from one that earned 11 wins in each of his first two seasons.
Jones said in the one early blemish, a 78-70 loss to Seton Hall in the second round of the Charleston Classic in South Carolina, the Hawks also learned how to deal at first with prosperity.
Penn's Zack Rosen is the Ivy League player of the week.
The senior point guard averaged 21.7 points in last week's game against Temple, Rider and Robert Morris. He finished with 19 points and 10 assists against Robert Morris. He made seven three-pointers while scoring a game-high 27 points against the Owls.
