    BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Nate Miller came off the bench to score 17 points to lead Bowling Green back from a halftime deficit to beat Fordham 65-59 on Saturday.

    Jio Fontan had 20 points for Fordham (2-9), with Chris Bethel adding 17 and Jacob Green 10.

    Fordham raced to a 5-0 lead and was on top 32-29 at the half. After Bowling Green spurted early in the second half to build an 11-point lead, the Rams narrowed the deficit to 59-57 on two free throws by Bethel with 3:12 left.
