After opening up the season at 1-4 on the road, the Rams were eager to give a packed Rose Hill Gym a win in their first home game. Instead, they suffer a tough loss to the Manhattan Jaspers in a game they led in the middle of the second half.
Last season Fordham defeated Texas State in the Rose Hill Gymnasium behind a 35 point performance from forward Chirs Gaston. This year, the Texas State Bobcats flipped the script in their building and won 86-76 in the opener for both teams.
Running Out of Home Court Magic
The Rose Hill Gym has helped push Fordham over the hump in one heart-stopping game after the next this season. Of their eight home wins in 2011-2012, five have been by six points or fewer. The Dayton Flyers came into the Bronx this afternoon and reversed that theme with a 72-70 overtime victory to even their Atlantic 10 record at 5-5, Fordham drops to 2-8 in conference play.
Fordham still winless in conference play
Langston Galloway tied a career high with 30 points on 10-14 shooting, including 7-9 from beyond the arc, as St. Joe’s downed Fordham 80-62 in the Hagan Arena Wednesday night. The Achilles heel for the Rams came in the form of field goal percentage on both sides of the ball.
