Siena Rallies by Fordham, 79-69
By Chris Marasco
On Monday night the Fordham Rams surrendered a 13 point lead to Siena midway through the second half that eventually led to them picking up their 6th loss of the season. With the loss, the Rams fall to 7-6 overall with their out of conference schedule coming to a close. Siena improves to 5-8 with the win, their 3rd in a row at the Times Union Center.
In an overall sloppy game, the Rams tallied 16 turnovers in a game that featured 29 from the two teams combined. Close to eight minutes into the second half, Siena went on a 22-0 scoring run and never looked back.
With Ryan Rhoomes fouling out of the game with seven minutes to play and Travion Leonard fouling out just a few minutes later, Fordham turned to a five guard offense.
The Saints’ started the game 0 for their first 10 shot attempts in the first half but were led by Junior Rob Poole who finished with 28 points in 37 minutes of work.
Mandell Thomas led all Fordham scorers with 20 points while Severe chipped in with 17 and Frazier with 13.
Associate Head Coach David Duke disscussed the loss with Mack Rosenberg and I on the One on One Postgame Report.
