Some of the interesting stats from the game (compliments of the Fordham Athletics Department) is the fact that the Rams are 79-36 (.684) in season openers since 1908. In addition, Fordham won five of the past six season openers.
One of the trends in the night is the fact that both teams played a stellar defensive game, with the Rams recording seven blocks with Abdou Tsimbila and Medor having three each.
Up next for the Fordham University Rams is a home game against Cornell on Saturday, November 11 with the start of the day scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
