Fordham builds big first half lead, cruises over CCSU

December 22, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) — Javontae Hawkins led four Fordham players in double figures with 16 points and the Rams cruised to an 83-60 win over Central Connecticut State on Wednesday night.

Antwoine Anderson finished with 15 points while Christian Sengfelder and Joseph Chartouny each added 14 for Fordham (6-7), which snapped a six-game losing streak.

All four Rams in double figures shot better than 50 percent, with Fordham finishing at 56.6 percent overall.

Austin Nehls scored 26 points for the Blue Devils (2-9), who shot just 43.8 percent and turned the ball over 24 times.

Fordham did much of its damage in the first half, building a 46-23 lead at the break. Within the first minute, the Rams scored seven of the game’s first nine points and took a double digit lead, 30-19, on two Chartouny free throws.

A Chuba Ohams dunk put the exclamation point on the opening period and Fordham cruised from there.
