Sacred Heart senior forward Corey Hassan, the Northeast Conference's Player of the Week, scored 33 points for the Pioneers (2-1). Hassan made 13 of 25 shots, including 4 of 9 3-pointers, and had 11 rebounds and five steals.

Fordham used a 21-2 run over a span of 7:25 in the second half to open a commanding 72-51 lead. Gaston and Brenton Butler, who scored 15 points for the Rams, each had eight points during the run.

The Pioneers are winless in four tries against teams from the Atlantic 10 Conference.
