Fordham Rams

The Rams kicked off February with a 10-12 record, then promptly lost four in a row to VCU, St. Bonaventure, Dayton and Davidson. After wins over Duquesne and George Mason in the next pair, Fordham lost to Saint Joseph’s, UMass and Rhode Island in the ensuing three games.

In their Tuesday tournament game versus Davidson, Fordham got a big bench effort in a comeback victory. The Rams forced overtime after a first-half deficit 27-19 and eventually pulled it out 71-63. Will Richardson was the leading team scorer with 20 bench points and three boards.

VCU Rams

Over on the VCU side, they managed a 19-9 run through their first 28 games, losing to McNeese, Iowa State, Boise State, Norfolk State, Memphis, St. Bonaventure, George Washington and UMass. It’s been losses to Richmond, Duquesne and Dayton since then.

Matched up against Dayton back on Friday, VCU held a seven-point edge going into the second half. The Rams ended up having to go to overtime and lost 91-86 in the end. Zeb Jackson was the top team scorer with his 26 points and five rebounds in 38 minutes.


I’ll probably lean toward VCU here. The Rams need a good effort after three straight losses, though. VCU gave up 53.6 percent shooting from the field to a good Dayton team in their last outing and got outmuscled on the boards 36-31 but otherwise didn’t play too badly. The Rams have given up 69 or more points in four of their last five games.

In the last meeting between these teams on February 6, VCU took a 75-60 road victory. After something of a slow first half, VCU picked it up in the second and eventually shot 51 percent from the field with 33 rebounds. This time VCU will need to get their ball control in order (13 turnovers) but overall they should be in good shape for the rematch.
