Fordham outlasts Richmond in overtime

BRONX, NY (WWBT) -

De'Monte Buckingham score 10 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, but it wasn't enough to pace Richmond past Fordham, as the Spiders fell on the road, 69-65 in overtime, on Wednesday night. It marks Richmond's first loss to Fordham since 2007, snapping the Spiders' 14-game winning streak in the series.

Richmond would trail late in the game, but Buckingham's three-pointer pulled the Spiders to within two at 58-56. They would trail, 60-58, when Jacob Gilyard slashed through the lane and scored on a lay-up with 21 seconds left to tie the game at 60 and force overtime.

Fordham would hit the clutch shots down the stretch. Joseph Chartouny hit two late high-percentage shots to stretch the Rams' lead to five points with 1:22 to play, and that was too big of a hole for the Spiders to climb out of. Richmond missed all five of its field goal attempts in the extra session.

Julius Johnson scored a team-high 12 points, while freshman Nathan Cayo added a career-high 10 points. Chartouny put together a solid all-around effort to pace Fordham, scoring 26 points and adding 12 rebounds and five steals.

Richmond falls to 3-11, 1-1 in the Atlantic 10, and is back in action on Saturday when the Spiders visit Saint Louis.
