Bonnies Tripped Up By Fordham, 68-49

BRONX, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure University women's basketball team fell to Fordham, 68-49, Friday afternoon at Rose Hill Gym.

The Bonnies were led by junior Asianae Johnson who scored 11 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Senior Emily Calabrese also scored in double figures for the Brown and White, chipping in 10 points on 5-for-7 shooting to go along with five rebounds.

Fordham (8-3, 5-2 A-10) built a 12-point lead at halftime. The Bonnies (2-7, 1-5) shot 42.3 percent from the floor in the first half, but found themselves trailing Fordham, 37-25, heading into the locker room at intermission.

Coming out of the halftime break, the Fordham offense was firing on all cylinders, growing its lead to as many as 17 in the third quarter, 48-31, with 4:10 remaining in the period.

The Bonnies, however, would not give up easily as Deja Francis and Olivia Brown made back-to-back baskets towards the end of the third to cut it to a 12-point, 51-39, deficit.

Kaitlyn Downey would convert a jumper with seven seconds remaining in the third to push it back to a 14-point game at the end of the third.

Fordham maintained its lead through the fourth period, which grew to 19, 62-43, midway through the quarter.

The Rams held the Bonnies without a made field goal over the final 4:19 of the game to take the convincing victory.

Fordham was able to take the early advantage in the first 20 minutes thanks to seven made threes, including three from Anna DeWolfe who had 15 first half points.

DeWolfe led all scorers, finishing with 23 points while Kendal Heremaia added 20 points and eight rebounds.

The Bonnies face a quick turnaround as they head to Rhode Island to take on the Rams Saturday, Jan. 23. Tip is slated for 4:00 p.m.
