Saint Joe’s Gets Milestone Win Over Fordham

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Langston Galloway tied his career high with 25 points and Saint Joseph’s overcame a 16-point second-half deficit to defeat Fordham 76-70 on Sunday and win the 1,500th game in the program’s 102-year history.

The Hawks (7-17, 2-8 Atlantic 10 Conference) have won two straight after a nine-game skid while the Rams (6-17, 0-11) have dropped 13 in a row and 37 consecutive A-10 games.

Carl Jones added 15 points for Saint Joseph’s, which trailed 47-31 with 18:45 to play.

A 21-6 Hawks run closed the gap to 53-52, with 11:01 left.

After the Rams’ Chris Gaston hit a jumper, Saint Joseph’s used a 15-3 spurt, including three 3-pointers by Jones, to lead 67-58 with 4:14 to go.

Branden Frazier and Brenton Butler scored 17 apiece for Fordham.

The Hawks had not played in the arena, now called the Izod Center, since losing to Oklahoma State 64-62 in the 2004 NCAA Elite Eight.
