Pat Swilling Jr. Leaves Hawk Hill

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer's Ray Parillo, Saint Joseph's freshman guard Patrick Swilling Jr. is no longer enrolled at SJU, per a source close to the situation. Prior to last Wednesday's home game against Xavier, Swilling was reported as being in violation of the school's code of conduct policy. Both Swilling and junior center Todd O'Brien missed the Xavier game, and on Sunday, the Temple game. While Todd O'Brien is expected back with the team this week, it appears as if Swilling is gone. In the Ray Parillo article linked here , a source close to the situation claimed that Swilling returned home to New Orleans prior to the completion of the judicial process.

In a blog article on NewOrleans.com, author Ed Daniels reports that Swilling is likely headed to either Central Florida or Louisiana Tech. That article can be found here .

Patrick averaged just under 12 minutes per game with the Hawks, averaging 1.4 points per game. He is the second Hawk to leave the team during the season. Sophomore guard Justin Crosgile left the team at the beginning of the month "to concentrate on personal issues."

The Hawks return to action Wednesday night at UMass.
