Recap: Fordham vs. Princeton

Brooklyn, NY (Sports Network) - Ryan Canty recorded an impressive double- double with 12 points and 15 rebounds as the Fordham Rams defeated the Princeton Tigers, 63-60, at the Barclays Center as part of the 2012 BROOKLYNHOOPS Winter Festival.

Canty was 6-of-10 from the field for the Rams (2-8), who snapped a five-game losing streak. Brandon Frazier led the team in scoring with 19 points while Chris Gaston contributed 16 points and five rebounds.

Ian Hummer tallied 18 points, seven rebounds, and five assists but his strong performance was spoiled as the Tigers (3-6) lost their second in a row. Will Barrett was the only other Princeton player to score in double-figures with 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting.

The Tigers led 28-26 at halftime after a back-and-forth first half with each team converting just over 40 percent of their field goal attempts.

A Frazier layup with eight seconds left put the Rams on top 61-60 for their first lead since the 9:05 mark in the second half. After Hummer missed a layup he was forced to foul Bryan Smith with three seconds left which sent him to the free-throw line. Smith made both free-throws and Hummer's desperation shot with one second remaining was no good as Fordham took the win.

The Rams earned a 34-28 rebounding edge in the game, which proved to be a key factor in the final moments.
