Quick Hits: Bonnies Second Half Rally Falls Short At Fordham

By Tim Harfmann, @TimHarf

Crawled back: Trailing 41-27 at halftime, St. Bonaventure fought back with a 16-to-2 run in the second half. The Bonnies outscored Fordham 23-21 in the half, and forced the Rams to shoot only 16% from the field (4-for-24).  

Hot From Deep: The Rams went 47 percent from long range, hitting 11 of their 23 3-point attempts, including nine of their 13 first half attempts. Fordham’s Marah Strickland (4-8) and Erin Rooney (3-6) were 50% from beyond the arc, while Abigail Corning went 2-for-3.  

No love in February: The Bonnies were unable to find love in a hopeless place, marking the first time in program history that the Brown and White were unable to be victorious during the month of February (0-6). 

CeCe for Three!: Junior CeCe Dixon led the Bonnies from three-point range, making three of her seven attempts. Prior to tonight’s game, the Queens, N.Y. native was just 3-for-19 from beyond the arc. 

“Ram”-ming Through History: In the two seasons under head coach Stephanie Gaitley, the Fordham Rams have secured double-digit victories in Atlantic-10 conference play. Prior to the 2011-2012 season, the Rams never won more than five games in a single season against their conference opponents.

Corning Glass: Fordham’s Abigail Corning tied a career-high with a game-best 14 rebounds. The junior had 15 points on the night off 5-of-8 shooting.

This One Hurts: Suffering a 62-50 loss at Fordham, the St. Bonaventure Bonnies have been officially eliminated from a possible Atlantic-10 Tournament run. The Bonnies (9-19, 2-11) needed to win its last two games while both VCU and LaSalle had to lose both of their final two games.
