Ebone Henry finished with a game-high 19 points and also had six steals as the University at Albany women’s basketball team kicked off its season with a 59-42 victory over Fordham Friday night at Rose Hill Gym.

After the Rams opened up a quick 9-2 lead, the Great Danes went on an 18-2 run, taking a 23-14 lead on a jumper by Cassandra Callaway. During the run, Henry had back-to-back steals and fastbreak layups before nailing consecutive threes.

Fordham pulled to within four points at 42-38 with just under eight minutes left, but the Danes then went on a 10-1 run to put the game out of reach.

Julie Forster chipped in with 16 rebounds and a team-high eight rebounds for UAlbany, and Callaway added 10 points.

Abigail Corning led the Rams with 14 points. Becky Peters scored seven points to go over 1,000 for her career.

The Great Danes will return to action Sunday, hosting La Salle in their home opener at 2 p.m.
