Syracuse women’s basketball NCAA tournament opponent preview: What to know about Fordham

first_imgNo. 12 Syracuse (24-8, 11-5 Atlantic Coast) hosts Fordham (25-8, 13-3 Atlantic 10) at the Carrier Dome in the first round of the NCAA tournament at 1 p.m. on Saturday. SU is the No. 3-seed in the Portland region and earned an at-large bid after falling to No. 3 Notre Dame in the ACC tournament semifinals two weeks ago. Fordham, the No. 14-seed, last played on March 10, when it defeated Virginia Commonwealth in the A10 tournament championship. The Rams are currently riding a 12-game winning streak and haven’t lost since Jan. 27, with nine of those wins coming by double-digits.Here’s what to know before Saturday’s matchup.All-time series: The series is tied, 2-2Last time they played: Syracuse defeated Fordham, 76-54, on Nov. 28, 2015, in the Las Vegas South Point Thanksgiving Shootout. Alexis Peterson paced the Orange with 25 points, eight assists and five steals on just eight shot attempts. The Rams had three scorers with 12 points including Lauren Holden, who was a freshman at the time and is the only current player on either roster who played in the teams’ previous meeting. SU began the fourth quarter up just 5 points but opened the period with a 16-0 run to break the game open. The Fordham report: Fordham comes into Saturday’s game as one of the hottest teams in the tournament. Despite their dozen straight victories and 25 total wins, though, the Rams have played just one contest this season against a ranked opponent. That matchup came on Nov. 25, when they fell to then-No. 10 Texas, 72-54. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFordham enters the NCAA tournament ranked 82nd in RPI, top in the Atlantic 10 but behind 11 teams in the ACC. The Rams have the 7th-best scoring defense in the country at 53.9 points per game, nearly 14 points fewer than the Orange allow on average. Offensively they are not as strong, averaging just 60.5 points per game — 264th in the nation. The Rams are led by redshirt sophomore guard Bre Cavanaugh, who is averaging 17.3 points and 6.4 rebounds. Senior forward Mary Goulding is Fordham’s best player however. The New Zealand native is the only other player on the team who averages double-figures in scoring and also leads the Rams in 3-point percentage, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.This is the third NCAA tournament berth ever for Fordham, which first earned a berth in 1994 after winning the Patriot League. Its most recent appearance came five years ago, when the Rams reached the tournament for the first time under head coach Stephanie Gaitley. They earned the 10-seed that year and led 7-seed California late in the game, but missed out on their first NCAA tournament win after the Golden Bears hit a go-ahead shot with 14 seconds left.How Syracuse beats Fordham: The Orange are the better team in this matchup, and they need to make use of their talent advantage early. A good way to do this would be to shut down Fordham’s offense, which shouldn’t be too hard. The Rams are a generally-poor shooting team, having shot just 39.4 percent from the field this season. If they have any chance at upsetting the Orange, it’ll be done through 3s. Fordham has taken the 22nd-most 3s in the country this year, and if Syracuse’s 2-3 zone can hold firm on those triples, it’ll be in good shape.Should SU be able to shut down the Rams on the perimeter, it’ll grab the lead early and run with it. Fordham is a team that hasn’t lost since Jan. 27, so once the Orange jump ahead, it very well may be for good. Offensively, Syracuse boasts a top-20 offense to counter the Rams’ top-10 defense. Even if Fordham has a hot shooting day from outside, SU should be able to run by the Rams with its up-tempo, high-scoring style of play. The Orange have the best offense Fordham has seen all season, and that’ll pose an issue for their in-state foe. Stat to know: 53.9 – The number of points Fordham allows on average per game. That not only tops the Atlantic 10, but is fewer than any ACC team allowed per game this season. The Rams’ defense features three players with 30 or more steals and is coming off two games in which it allowed only 81 points combined. The best defense statistically that the Orange faced this season was Central Florida’s, which allows 55.6 per game and held SU to a then-season low 57 points on Dec. 22.Player to watch: Bre Cavanaugh, guard, No. 10While Mary Goulding’s skillset may make her Fordham’s most complete player, if the Rams upset the Orange, it’ll be Cavanaugh leading the way. The redshirt sophomore earned second-team All-Atlantic 10 honors last year in her first season at Fordham after transferring from California. This season, she’s been even better. Cavanaugh has the ability to explode offensively on any given night, and is playing her best basketball of the year. She’s averaging 24 points over her last four contests, including a season-high 29 points against Massachusetts in the quarterfinals of the A10 tournament.

(AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)ExpandLOS ANGELES — At home against a wounded, wobbling — and ever gritty, dangerous — Memphis Grizzlies, the Lakers couldn’t grind out a victory, losing 107-99 after they were beaten 35-24 in the fourth quarter Sunday.The Lakers (19-14) couldn’t put away a victory to propel them into a much-anticipated Christmas day matchup with the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.Memphis, meanwhile, snapped a five-game losing streak before 18,997 fans at Staples Center, winning for just the second time in nine games, dating back to the 111-88 clobbering the Lakers delivered when the last the teams met on Dec. 8 in Memphis.“It’s a frustrating loss, those are the lumps we’re talking about,” Lakers Coach Luke Walton said, resignation thick in his voice. “Give them credit for hitting shots, they were 8 for (10) from 3 (in the fourth quarter), but … we messed up coverages, we didn’t communicate — all the things we work on. For some reason, we didn’t have that in us to do down the stretch of that game. In the end, yes.Wagner (no points and three rebounds) was a non-factor, flustered during his four minutes on the floor by Grizzlies defenders down low.Related Articles But for the second consecutive game, Zubac was collected and in sync with his teammates, and especially with James, who scored only two first-half points but assisted on four of Zubac’s eight makes (in 10 attempts) in that span. As a team, the Lakers started the game with 17 assists on 19 made-buckets.James finished with a team-high 22 points to go with 14 rebounds and seven assists; Zubac wound up with a season-high 19 points, four rebounds, four blocks and an assist in a season-high 33 minutes.“Luke’s always been saying to me that he trusts me and if there’s a chance to out me on the floor, he’s going to put me there,” Zubac said. “He’s going to always trust me like every other player on the team. And I’ve just been doing the same stuff every day, working hard, doing everything to stay in shape. So when Luke trusted me with an opportunity, I gotta take full advantage of it.”The Lakers needed that output from the 7-foot-1 Croatian center because Jackson and Gasol delivered 27 and 17 points respectively.The teams traded the lead 25 times before Memphis pulled away late in the fourth quarter, when Mike Conley scored 11 of his 17 points, as Lakers defenders lost track of him or failed to stick with him on screens.“We made too many mistakes,” James said. “No excuses. We had too many blown coverages down the stretch… the defensive breakdowns were what was crippling us down to the stretch.”Gasol gave the Grizzlies a 93-91 lead late when he head-faked and made the layup (drawing a foul, but missing the free throw) with 3:42 left.After that, James made a deep 3-pointer, but  Conley made two 3s and Jackson made a pair of foul shots, lifting Memphis (17-16) to a 101-94 leadJosh Hart sank a 3-pointer and James charged in for a layup to close the gap to 104-99 with 38.5 remaining, but Jackson Jr. hit a 3-point dagger over James with 25 seconds left to seal it.For part of the fourth quarter, the Lakers, searching, went against Memphis and its two towering stars without a true center on the floor — Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (10 points) joined James, Kyle Kuzma (11), Hart (11) and Rajon Rondo (2).Without McGee and Chandler, the Lakers “had to manipulate lineups even if a group was going good,” Walton said. “We felt we had to get certain guys out so we could get them a quick rest. It hurt the flow, the momentum we had a couple times throughout the game.“But at the end of the day, we lost because we stopped playing defense.”The Lakers led 75-72 entering the final quarter thanks to a tough 3-pointer by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the waning moments of the third.In his second game back from an ankle injury, forward Brandon Ingram had 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting in 38 minutes. Starting point guard Lonzo Ball went 2 for 10 and finished with four points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals.The Lakers shot 49.3 percent and held Memphis to 46.7 percent, and they finished with 27 assists on 37 field goals and 25 fast-break points to the Grizzlies’ four, but it wasn’t enough.“They outrebounded us, we had more turnovers than them, honestly, we didn’t deserve to win,” said Walton, referring to Memphis’ 16-9 edge in turnovers and 43-41 advantage on the boards. “We’ll learn and we’ll move on.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“So that one hurts going into the holidays, but that’s life in the NBA.”With their regular centers ailing and unavailable (Tyson Chandler was nursing back spasms and JaVale McGee recovering from a respiratory infection) the Lakers leaned on their young big fellas.Third-year center Ivica Zubac got his second consecutive start (and second this season) and rookie Moe Wagner was assigned primary backup duties.And, yes, they were facing the most-potent post duo of veteran all-star Marc Gasol and sensational rookie Jaren Jackson Jr.Advantage Grizzlies?
