It goes without saying that the Fordham men’s basketball team has been struggling for quite a while now. Only once in the past 22 years have the Rams finished above .500. And with only three games left in the 2014-15 season and the Rams sitting at 9-17 overall and 4-11 in the Atlantic 10, they’re sure to finish this season with a losing record as well.

Although the official Atlantic 10 standings said that Fordham lost to Saint Joseph's today, that was not the case in Philadelphia. Down 47-46 with 10 seconds remaining in regulation, senior forward Emily Tapio took an inbounds pass from point guard Tiffany Ruffin and converted a layup to give Fordham a 48-47 lead. The ensuing Saint Joseph's shot was blocked by none other than Tapio, and Fordham went on to improve to 9-2 in the A-10 and 17-7 overall.
