Kellan Grady had 28 points as Davidson beat Fordham 79-69 on Tuesday night.Grady made 10 of 12 free throws at the Rose Hill Gym in the Bronx.
Luka Brajkovic had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Davidson (18-6, 9-2 Atlantic 10 Conference). Luke Frampton added 15 points and seven rebounds. Jon Axel Gudmundsson had 11 points and eight assists for the visiting team.
“One thing we talked about a lot this time of year is that basketball in February is a fight,” Fordham coach Jeff Neubauer said. “Both teams did a terrific job fighting tonight.Davidson is a very skilled team, a very good offensive team, as good as there is in the country, and tonight they had a lot of fight.”
He added, “We did keep fighting. We were down double figures and came back, Jalen Cobb made a lot of shots to help us get back in the game. Maybe the possession it comes down to is when we were down six and they got three shots at it, meaning there were two long offensive rebounds. That was probably our opportunity. ”
Davidson plays Saint Joseph’s at home on Friday. Fordham matches up against Rhode Island on the road on Saturday.
