NEW YORK (AP) - Joseph Chartouny scored 16 points with eight assists, Fordham shot 10 of 24 from long distance and the Rams broke the game open early to beat UMass 77-66 Wednesday night.

Fordham, which beat UMass 78-72 in overtime on Jan. 30, has defeated an Atlantic 10 Conference foe twice in the regular season for the first time since 2007.

UMass led 16-7, but Fordham hit five straight 3-pointers amid a 32-2 run and led 40-25 at halftime. Nemanja Zarkovic hit three 3s in the spurt and finished with 11 for Fordham (13-11, 4-9), which ended a three-game skid.

Jon Severe scored 13, Christian Sengfelder added 11 and Ryan Rhoomes had 10 with 13 rebounds for Fordham.

UMass trimmed the deficit to seven on Donte Clark’s 3-pointer with 17:23 left in the second half, but got no closer than nine the rest of the way.

Trey Davis scored 20 points and grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds for UMass (11-14, 4-9).
