The 22-ranked Harvard Crimson left the Bronx with their heads bowed following a defeat against the local boys of Fordham University.
According to USA Today, the win was the first for Fordham (7-6) over a ranked team since a 68-67 win over then-No. 24 St. John’s at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 9, 2000. It was also the Rams’ first win against a Top 25 team at Rose Hill Gym since beating No. 19 Georgetown 63-59 on Feb. 26, 1978.
“Congratulate Fordham. They played inspired basketball,” Harvard coach Tommy Amaker said. ”Give them credit. They did a tremendous job.”
