Fordham still winless in conference play
Langston Galloway tied a career high with 30 points on 10-14 shooting, including 7-9 from beyond the arc, as St. Joe’s downed Fordham 80-62 in the Hagan Arena Wednesday night. The Achilles heel for the Rams came in the form of field goal percentage on both sides of the ball.
St. Joe’s, despite shooting an abysmal 56 percent from the charity stripe, could not miss from the field, shooting 49 percent overall, including an outstanding 12-24 from three. Fordham, on the other hand, shot just 34 percent from the field and 50 percent from the foul line.
St. Joe’s assisted on 24 of their 25 baskets on the evening, led by big man Halil Kanacevic’s eight helpers. The sophomore forward played his first year of college basketball at Hofstra under current Fordham coach Tom Pecora.
Sophomore C.J. Aiken, who came into the game ranked second in the nation in blocks with over four per game, swatted away six Fordham shot attempts on the game.
Branden Frazier scored a team-high 22 points for the Rams and added three helpers. Two other Rams reached double figures in scoring, as Chris Gaston poured in 15 and Kervin Bristol netted 12.
As a team, the Rams committed just four turnovers on the evening, well below their season average of 14.
Fordham returns back to action this Wednesday when they host Rhode Island at 7:00 pm in the Rose Hill Gym. The One on One pregame report starts at 6:55 pm on 90.7 FM and WFUV.org.
