Big East Journal: Day 1 - That Was Something

by Kenny Ducey

While almost everyone in New York was busy watching the Knicks win their fifth-straight game, then continuing to follow the Phil Jackson-to-NY news, there was some basketball being played at Madison Square Garden. It was kind of weird basketball.

Sloppy may be the best term to describe it; there was an abundance of fouls and a ton of missed jumpshots. The only of the four teams to play that shot better than 36% in the first half, Georgetown, lost 60-56 to DePaul. Seton Hall, going just 5/20 from deep, fought off Butler 51-50.

The final score put the game much closer than it was for the first 35 minutes. The Saint Joseph Hawks jumped out to an early 7-0 lead and never looked back. Fordham went into the half down 12, with the score at 42-30, but the Hawks were just as hot out of half time. They went up 29 points with 13 to go in the game for their biggest lead of the day. The scoring outburst from Saint Joseph's was large in part thanks to senior guard Langston Galloway's offensive outburst. He scored 33 points and went 10 for 15 from 3-point distance. The Rams defense seemed to have few answers.

There were several times when Rams fans probably thought another winnable game had gotten away on Wednesday night. Not this time.  Fordham (8-10, 1-4 A10) overcame an 11-point first half deficit and a 10-point second half hole to defeat the Patriots of George Mason (7-12, 0-5 A10), 76-70.
