BRONX, New York (WKBN) – Antonio Daye’s game-winning layup lifted Fordham past Duquense, 72-71. The Rams are 9-5 overall, under first-year head coach Kyle Neptune, and 2-0 for the first time since joining the Atlantic 10 Conference in the 1995-96 season.

Over the last 30 years (since 1992-93), Fordham has enjoyed just two winning seasons overall.

Wednesday night, Daye and former Youngstown State point guard Darius Quisenberry led Fordham with 16 points apiece. Quisenberry had four rebounds, two assists and went 2-5 on his three-point shots.

Quisenberry has scored 25 points in three separate games this season (vs. Columbia, Maryland Eastern Shore and Central Connecticut State). Through his first 14 games, he’s leading the team in free throw percentage (80.7%) as well as placing second in scoring with 16.5 points (second on the team) and three-point shooting (34.0%) while starting 13 contests.

Quisenberry was a two-time All-Horizon League selection as a freshman and sophomore. He set the Penguin freshman scoring record with 441 points in 2018-19.
