NEW YORK (AP) - Chris Gaston scored 19 points with 10 rebounds and Bryan Smith added a season-high 18 as Fordham used a strong second half to rally past Monmouth (N.J.) 82-71 Monday.

The Rams (4-10) trailed 33-28 at the break and by seven a minute into the second half. They then went on an 18-5 run, with Gaston scoring eight points, to take the lead for good.

The Hawks (5-8) got within a point on two occasions, the last time at 49-48 with 10:21 to go, but Smith knocked down two straight 3-pointers to spark an 11-2 run and Monmouth never threatened again.
