Carl Jones scored 16 points and Saint Joseph's had a school-record 17 blocks in an 81-50 rout of Morgan State on Wednesday night, making coach Phil Martelli the Hawks' all-time leader in career victories.

Saint Joseph's came in ranked third nationally with 8.08 blocks per game behind Kentucky (9.3) and Connecticut (8.09).

Ronald Roberts added 15 points and Langston Galloway 14 for the Hawks.

Ian Chiles and Blake Bozeman led Morgan State with 10 points apiece.
