The Fordham Rams closed out the 2012 calendar year the right away, defeating the Monmouth Hawks 82-71 at the Rose Hill Gym on New Year’s Eve. With the win, the Rams have now won three out of their last five games. That may not sound like much, but the team has shown much improvement since their 1-8 start.
Fordham committed 14 turnovers in a very sloppy first half. Those turnovers, combined with the fact that Chris Gaston and Branden Frazier, the team’s two top scorers, combined for just 8 first half points, had the Rams down 33-28 at intermission.
