Philadelphia, PA- The Philadelphia University Rams (16-6, 8-1 CACC) continued to be victorious in an 88-57 win over Concordia College (3-16, 3-7 CACC) on Saturday at the Gallagher Athletic Center.  The win was number 896 for Head Coach Herb Magee, putting him within four games of the magic 900 all-time wins milestone.  The team is on a seven-game roll.

PhilaU senior guard Russell Frederick (Baltimore, MD/ Calvert Hall) led all scorers with 29 points (6-9 from three-point range).

The Rams distanced themselves from CC using 50% field goal shooting and making 45% of their three-balls (to CC's 25%).

The Clippers were led by 12 points each from Argelix Gil and William Eason.

An 11-11 lock early in the first half was quickly broken on a trey by PhilaU rookie Jim Connolly (Harleysville, PA/ Souderton) just two plays later- and the Rams never glanced back again.  Connolly had eight points and five boards on the night.

A 13-0 run mid-way through the first half gave PhilaU a 39-20 advantage, helped by two buckets from Ram senior forward Malcolm Ingram (Philadelphia, PA/ Solebury Prep)- who had 18 points and 12 rebounds on the afternoon.

PhilaU led 41-24 at the half.

In the second half, PhilaU dominated from nearly every angle as sophomore forward Corey Francisco (Woodbridge, NJ/ Monmouth Academy) racked up eight points in the later period. He finished with 10 points and four rebounds.

PhilaU takes the court next on Saturday (2/6) at Caldwell College at 4 p.m.
