Fordham Minus Top Player vs. Bona

Fordham will be without 6-7 forward Chris Gaston, one of the top players in the Atlantic 10, for this afternoon's 2 p.m. start at Bona. Gaston was ejected for throwing a punch late in the first half of Wednesday's win over Rhode Island. The transgression carries a one-game suspension.

Gaston averages 15.4 points and 10.4 rebounds. He went off for 35 against West Texas and had 18 and 10 in the Rams' upset of nationally ranked Harvard.

Did You Know?: Cool item in the Fordham press notes. The Rams participated in the first game ever played with the 3-point line -- on Feb. 7, 1945. The arc -- at 21 feet -- was used on an experimental basis, with Columbia making 11 and Fordham nine. What's more, players had the option of shooting two-point free throws from behind the arc. Eight of those were made. Neat stuff. I had no idea.
