The Fordham Rams and the St. John’s Red Storm will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Carnesecca Arena.

ABOUT FORDHAM (5-4): Eastern Kentucky tranfser Javontae Hawkins led the way with 17 points in the loss to the Crimson, but shot a disappointing 4-of-14 from the floor three nights after going 9-of-11 for 23 points in a one-point loss to Sacred Heart. Hawkins paces the Rams with 14.6 points per game, while Joseph Chartouny (12.6), Christian Sengfelder (12.1) and Antwoine Anderson (11.6) have provided solid supplementary scoring. Chartouny, a Montreal native who missed the Harvard game after suffering an elbow injury early in the Sacred Heart defeat, has been Fordham’s top perimeter player – leading the team in assists (6.6) and ranking second in the country in steals (3.6).

ABOUT ST. JOHN’S (4-5): Ponds had plenty of help in the win over CSU Northridge as backcourt mate Bashir Ahmed overcame a rough night from the field (2-for-9) to pour in 13 points and haul in eight rebounds while Federico Mussini added 12 points in a reserve role to reach double figures for the third consecutive game. Ponds is up to 16.3 points per game on the season and is shooting 60.9 percent from the field and 58.3 percent from beyond the arc during the Red Storm’s two-game winning streak. LoVett is considered day-to-day, but the team might opt to give him a little more rest in hopes he’ll be completely healthy going into a pivotal meeting with rival Syracuse on Dec. 21.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Red Storm listed as 5-point favorites versus the Rams, while the game’s total is sitting at 135 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

One of New York City’s most storied college basketball rivalries reignites as Fordham and host St. John’s do battle for the 88th time. St. John’s has put an ugly five-game losing skid in the rearview mirror, trouncing Tulane on the road before returning home to beat CSU Northridge despite missing their leading scorer.

With Marcus LoVett sidelined by an ankle injury that forced him into a walking boot, freshman guard Shamorie Ponds took over the scoring burden for the Red Storm against the Matadors and responded with vigor, pouring in a career-best 25 points on 10-of-18 shooting. St. John’s has used its long-range shooting to claw back to within a game of the .500 mark, ranking in the top 25 nationally with 10.1 made 3-pointers per game. The Red Storm look to continue their hot shooting against the struggling Rams, who have dropped three in a row following a five-game winning streak. Fordham is coming off its most dismal offensive effort of the season, shooting just 33.3 percent from the field in a 64-52 setback at Harvard on Saturday.

Last time out for St. John’s, they were a 76-70 winner as they battled Matadors at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -10.5-point favorite.
