Atlantic Ten college basketball features the Fordham Rams visiting the St. Bonaventure Bonnies.
The Fordham Rams are not supposed to be a factor in the Atlantic Ten but the team could make the competition squirm with a boost in scoring. That didn’t happen Saturday in a 64-41 loss to the Duquesne Dukes as a two point favorite where a 15 point second half and 32% marksmanship was decisive.
