Two teams trying to make a move up the Atlantic 10 standings battle on Saturday afternoon as UMass hosts Fordham. You can catch this game on NBCSN at 12 p.m. EST.

The Minutemen (8-11, 1-6) have struggled to find their footing in league play so far as they’ve dropped six consecutive games after winning their conference opener over La Salle. UMass has a strong trio in Trey Davis (19.5 ppg), Donte Clark (17.1 ppg) and Jabarie Hinds (13.7 ppg) that they rely on to do most of the scoring.

Fordham (11-8, 2-6) has dropped five of their last six games as the Rams try to pick up their first road win of the season. With at least six players averaging nine points per game, Fordham has a balanced offensive attack led by Mandell Thomas (14.4 ppg) and Ryan Rhoomes (13.9 ppg).
