Jermaine Myers and Leonard Travion netted 10 points apiece for Fordham (6-18, 2-7), which lost its fourth straight contest.
The home team jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead and shot 13-of-19 from 3-point range as they secured a 56-25 halftime advantage. La Salle assisted on 15 first-half baskets while Fordham had just five dishes in the opening period.
