The Fordham Women’s Basketball team was able to set a new season-high for points scored in the team’s 73-55 victory over Davidson on Sunday. With the win, which is their third straight, the Rams improve to a 9-3 overall mark and a 6-2 record in Atlantic 10 play, while the Wildcats fall to 6-7, 3-4 respectively.

The action was fast and furious to start, as Davidson held a one-point lead, after the opening 10 minutes. The Rams were able to use a 17-8 second-quarter effort to gain a ton of momentum heading into halftime.

Fordham was able to lead for most the opening 10 minutes of the third quarter, as Sophomore guard Anna DeWolfe started the frame with a trey three minutes into the game, which build the team’s lead to 7-2. The Wildcats were able to respond with an 8-2 run to take the first lead of the contest. A pair of three throws by Fordham freshman Maranda Nyborg was able to help her team briefly regain the lead.

The Rams were able to get the eventual game-winner thanks to a bucket by Kendell Heremaia. The visiting side had such tremendous touches and great all-around play, which was a huge reason why the team was able to gain the victory.

Leading the way in scoring was DeWolfe, who had 27 points, which matched a career-high for in-conference contest, adding a pair of assists and steals in over 38 minutes. Heremaia was able to record her second straight 20-point game, while also notching her ninth career double-double with 11 rebounds.

Fordham shot 45.0% from the floor, which included a 54.5% mark from beyond the arc, and a 10-of-13 mark from the free throw line. The team had some stellar defense as they were able to hold Davidson to 32.3% shooting.
The Rams will remain on the road for two more games next weekend, at Richmond and at VCU on Friday at 5p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m., respectively.
