The Fordham Rams couldn't capture a last win in the 2014-2015 regular season, falling to St. Bonaventure, 66-52. The loss dropped the Rams to 9-20 overall this season.

The Rams held a 28-23 halftime lead, but a more focused St. Bonaventure team showed up to play in the 2nd half. The loss leaves Fordham hoping to put on a better showing in the A-10 Tournament next week in Brooklyn.  The Bonnies outscored the Rams, 43-24 in the second half on their way to a 17th victory this season.
