March 10, 2013
PHILADELPHIA - After advancing to the semifinals of the Atlantic 10 Championship for the first time since joining the conference, the Fordham Rams look to punch their ticket to Brooklyn, taking on the Temple Owls at 4 PM.
The Rams come into Sunday off an impressive 65-48 win over Saint Louis last night. Marah Strickland led the way for the Rams with 22 points, while Arielle Collins added 13 and Samantha Clark chipped in 10. Erin Rooney registered nine points, six boards and six assists, while Abigail Corning scored eight points and pulled down five offensive rebounds.
SERIES HISTORY: Fordham enters Sunday's game with a 5-23 mark all-time against Temple, having snapped a 17 game skid against the Owls in The City of Brotherly Love one week ago.
SCOUTING TEMPLE: The Owls run most of their offense through senior forward Victoria Macaulay, whose 14.4 points and 9.2 rebounds per game lead the team.
Two other Owls came up huge for Temple in the team's 48-47 upset win over the number two seed Charlotte last night, as Rateska Brown poured in 23 points and Tyonna Williams added 14.
Fordham would advance to the A-10 Championship Game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday with a win, and a victory would give Coach Stephanie Gaitley number 500 for her illustrious career.
