Alberto Estwick scored 16 points and Fordham rallied late in a 61-57 win over Hartford on Saturday, the Rams' second victory - matching last season's win total.
The Rams (2-3) trailed 55-46 with 4:40 remaining and ended the game on a 15-2 run. Fordham was a perfect 6-for-6 from the free-throw line during the stretch.
The Rams, who were 2-26 last season, went 11 of 13 from the free throw line (84.6 percent), including 10 of 10 in the second half. The Rams came in shooting 55 percent from the line.
Hartford (1-4) led 32-23 at halftime and made just 3 of 15 free throws in the second half (20 percent). The poor free-throw shooting was enough to spoil the 17 points which resulted from 17 Fordham turnovers.

Joe Zeglinksi led the Hawks with 21 points.
