Fordham @ St. John’s
Current Records: Fordham 6-3; St. John’s 5-2
What to Know
The Fordham Rams will take on the St. John’s Red Storm at 7 p.m. ET Sunday at Carnesecca Arena. The Rams should still be riding high after a big victory, while St. John’s will be looking to get back in the win column.
Everything went Fordham’s way against the St. Francis (N.Y.) Terriers this past Wednesday as they made off with a 68-46 win.
Meanwhile, the Red Storm suffered a grim 95-75 defeat to the Kansas Jayhawks this past Friday. That makes it the first time this season St. John’s has let down their home crowd. Their loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of guard Julian Champagnie, who shot 6-for-9 from downtown and finished with 24 points and eight rebounds, and guard Dylan Addae-Wusu, who had 16 points.
Fordham is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. Those who got lucky with them against the spread this past Wednesday might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the squad has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Fordham found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 90-62 punch to the gut against the Red Storm when the teams previously met five seasons ago. Can the Rams avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
