BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) -- Jeffrey Short hit a go-ahead layup with 52 seconds left and Fordham earned a 70-68 victory over Pennsylvania in an NIT Season Tip-Off consolation game Monday.

The Rams trailed 66-65 after Penn's Steve Rennard hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:13 left, but Short's layup put Fordham up 67-66.

Branden Frazier drained a pair of free throws with 15 seconds left to put Fordham (1-3) up 69-66. A Fran Dougherty layup with six seconds left cut the deficit to 69-68, but Jermaine Myers' free throw a second later set the final margin.

Frazier finished with a team-high 19 points, boosted by 9-of-10 shooting from the free-throw line. Short had 12 points on 4-of-11 shooting.

Fordham shot 42.1 percent (8 of 19) from beyond the arc, with Bryan Smith (14 points) leading the way by going 4 of 5 from 3.

Dougherty and Miles Cartwright each had 20 points for the Quakers.
