Ohams helps unbeaten Fordham cruise past Marist 58-41

NEW YORK -- Chuba Ohams scored 13 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead four players into double-figure scoring in undefeated Fordham’s 58-41 win over Marist on Saturday night.

Jalen Cobb hit a 3 with just under three minutes to play in the first half to give the Rams a 10-point lead at 27-17, but Michael Cubbage hit a jumper with three seconds left to cut the Red Foxes’ deficit to nine, 29-20 at the break.

An Ohams layup pushed the lead back to double digits early in the second half and Fordham pulled away steadily the rest of the way.

Antwon Portley added 12 points, Onyi Eyisi added 10 points and grabbed 15 rebounds for Fordham (3-0) while Cobb added 10 points and made four steals.

Matt Turner had 10 points for Marist (1-2) and was the lone scorer to reach double digits.
