The Fordham University Women’s Basketball team (6-3, 3-2 A-10 Conference) took a tough 61-56 loss to the University of Massachusetts (8-2, 4-1 A-10 Conference) in College Basketball action on Sunday.

Leading the way on the offense for Fordham was Anna DeWolfe who had 21 points. Kaitlyn Downey followed with 14 points and Kendell Heremaia contributed with eight points.

Fordham had a sluggish third quarter was the reason for the team snapping a four-game winning streak. The Rams only shoot 35.3% in the first half of play.

The University of Massachusetts was able to use an 11-3 run to take their first lead as the two teams entered into the third quarter. Things were back and forth in a very competitive game between these two teams, in the end UMass was able to push the lead to double digits and sealed the victory.

One of the bright spots for Fordham was the fact that they were able to grab a ton of rebounds during the game, winning the board battle 44-42. The downsides were the mount of fouls that were drawn as the Rams were called for 24 penalties.

Up next for the Fordham University Women’s Basketball team is a road trip to Ohio on Saturday as they will take on the University of Dayton. The game between Fordham and Dayton is set for 1:00 p.m.
