Carr, Nivins name St. Joe's co-captains

Tasheed Carr and Ahmad Nivins have been named co-captains of the Saint
Joseph's men's basketball team, which began practice for the 2008-09 season
today. Carr and Nivins earned the spots as voted on by their
teammates.

Carr, a 6-4 senior guard from Philadelphia, will serve as
co-captain for the second year in a row. Carr led the Hawks in assists last
season with 5.6 per game, a number which ranked second in the A-10. He also
averaged 10.8 points per game.

Nivins, a 6-9 senior forward from
Jersey City, N.J., is one of the top returning players in the Atlantic 10
Conference. He's also the Hawks' leading returning scorer and rebounder with
averages of  14.4 points and 5.8 rebounds from last season. Nivins is a
two-time All-Atlantic 10 and All-Big 5 honoree.

It was also determined
that junior guard Darrin Govens will see limited action in upcoming practices
while recovering from a groin strain. The date for Govens to return to full
speed is undetermined at this time.
