On Tap: Fordham at Charlotte

While Fordham is struggling through a very difficult season - even worse than the Charlotte 49ers - there are some bright spots on the horizon for the Rams. Fordham has six freshmen on their roster and several have already made significant impacts this season, which should bode well for the program in the future.

Specifically, Charlotte fans should keep an eye out in Saturday's game on freshman 6-0 guard Jio Fontan from Paterson, N.J. Fontan is averaging 16.5 points and 7.5 assists over the Rams' past two games. Fontan is the team's leading scorer on the season, averaging 15.3 ppg but is only shooting 38.8 percent from the field. He ranks ninth in the Atlantic 10 in scoring and is fourth in assists per game (nearly five a game).
