Strong Effort From Fordham Last Night

So if you any of you haven’t heard, Fordham has struggled mightily for the past three years. With only four victories the past two seasons, the Rams have found themselves in the far bottom of the Atlantic 10. This year, the Rams have struggled, but are a much improved team. In the beginning of the season, the Rams put together some impressive wins against Lehigh and St. John’s. But since the Atlantic 10 season started, the Rams have been looking for their first conference win. Last night, Fordham took on the #24 Temple Owls. It would’ve been easy for Rams to roll over against one of the top teams in the country. In the first half, Temple ran off to a big lead and led by 18 at half. But the Rams surged at the start of the second half led by sophomore Chris Gaston (who ended the night with 27 points). The Rams came all the way back and cut the lead to three with 13 minutes to go. Fordham would fight hard the rest of the game, but the better team would prevail. Final score: Temple 77, Fordham 66.

Chris Gaston Had 27 Points Last Night

Even though Fordham is arguably one of the worst teams in the country, we can all learn from their hard work. This team never gives up, no matter what the score. In the Rams’ victory against St. John’s last December, Fordham was down by 22 with eight minutes to go. FU would end up coming back to defeat the Red Storm by three. So Fordham might not even win a game the rest of the season, but always know that the men of Rose Hill will continue to work hard for Fordham nation. Go Rams.
