Lady Rams and Lady Jaspers to battle it out in hoops season opener

The Lady Rams and Lady Jaspers will go head to head in the season opener Friday. The women's basketball teams will be battling for Bronx bragging rights.

Fordham is already shorthanded. Prized recruit Nikki Bozeman decided not to come to Fordham, and both Stacy Price and Latoy Chalmers were lost with season ending injuries. One thing Fordham has is size with 6 foot, 6 inch tall Kyshawn Ruff, 6 foot, 4 inch tall Vanessa Silva and 6 foot, 2 inch tall Jada Jefferson.

As for Manhattan, it's year two of the Myndi Hill era. The team is young and has only two players 6 foot or taller. They have also had to replace Rosalee Mason and her 18 points and 11 rebounds a game. Coch Hill expects to play four off the bench.
