Saint Joseph’s coach Phil Martelli’s grandson Philip, 4, was on hand for the No. 10 Hawks’ first-round matchup with N0. 7 Connecticut. Saint Joseph’s holds a 40-35 lead at the half with three scorers in double figures and Langston Galloway has a game-high 12 points.
Philip left the tie at home for the trip to Buffalo, N.Y., but he didn’t forget his blazer. Check out Phillip doing his best Martelli impression below. Let’s see if he can lead the Hawks to their first NCAA tournament win since 2004, when Jameer Nelson and former Eleanor Roosevelt product Delonte West were running the show.
