Fordham now 2-7 in A10.
The Charlotte 49ers topped the Fordham Rams at the Rose Hill Gym 69-62. Poor shooting became their downfall. The Rams shot 30.9% from the field and 23% from behind the three-point line.
Charlotte Center Chris Braswell paced the 49ers with 20 points and 12 rebounds. Forward DeMario Mayfield also recorded a double-double with 17 points and 14 rebounds.
Forward Chris Gaston lead the Rams with 25 points and 14 rebounds. The only other Ram who finished the game in double figures was Guard Bryan Smith, who had 14 points, but on 3 for 13 shooting.
This game had large implications for the 12th and final spot in the A10 tournament. Fordham, Charlotte, and Rhode Island came into the game tied for that spot with a 2-6 record. Now, the Rams have to make a run with a tough remaining conference schedule the rest of the way.
