Fordham Men's Basketball

Jeff Short Transfers, but his Shoes can be Filled

by Kenny Ducey

Flash back to last April.

It’s late in recruiting season, but the Rams manage to get a 6’ 1” Point Guard out of Blair Academy by the name of Jermaine Myers. He’ll add depth to the backcourt and compete with Fatty McMillan for minutes. The team enters the offseason on a higher note than years past; while Kervin Bristol is gone, Chris Gaston will surely have a monster senior campaign.

Fordham Men's Basketball Coach Tom Pecora joined Alex Smith and Matt Sinise from Albany, New York and the high school state tournament.  The interview, which occured during the Fordham Focus segment, was the season wrap up for the Rams head coach.

Fordham Focus 3/9: One on One With Tom Pecora

by Alex Smith

On the morning of Saturday March 9th, in Olean, NY, Mack Rosenberg and I sat down with Fordham Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tom Pecora for the final time this season. Fordham’s final game with Saint Bonaventure was just hours away, so we took the chance to look back on this season, and look ahead to next year.

Rams Take Season Finale 76-72 over Saint Bonaventure

by Alex Smith

Heading into their regular season finale at St. Bonaventure, the Fordham Rams didn’t appear to have much to play for. They had no chance of making the A10 tournament, and they hadn’t won a road conference game in four calendar years. On the other side, the Bonnies had everything to play for. A win for the Bonnies put them into postseason play. It was also Senior Day at the Reilly Center. Despite the odds, the young Fordham team played hard for 40 minutes, and their senior leader Chris Gaston stepped up when it mattered most, leading the Rams to an improbable 76-72 win to finish out the year.

Owls Drop Fordham in 2012-13 Rose Hill Finale, 74-55

Fordham (6-24, 2-13 A10) finished out their 2013 home slate with a 19 point loss to Temple (22-8, 10-5 A10) Wednesday night, 74-55. Fordham led 12-6 with about 13 minutes to go in the first half, but scored only five points for the remainder of the half and found themselves down by 11 at the break. This put them in a hole they would never climb out of before a sparse Rose Hill Gym crowd.

Despite the fact that Richmond defeated Fordham on Saturday afternoon, a good crowd was on hand to watch Fordham senior Chris Gaston play one of his final games at Rose Hill. Part of that crowd were a few notable Fordham athletics alumni who came back to their old stomping ground.

Rams Get Caught in Spiders’ Web, 72-55

Eric Mollo

It was Senior Day at the Rose Hill Gym Saturday. Along with senior team managers, there was one player who walked out to celebrate his Fordham career: Chris Gaston. Gaston has had a prolific career at Fordham and he received a huge ovation in front of the Fordham fans. Unfortunately, there was not much to celebrate after the opening tip, as the Richmond Spiders dominated Fordham, winning 72-55.

Fordham Loses Dogfight to Butler, 68-63

by Mack Rosenberg

The atmosphere at the Rose Hill Gym Saturday evening was the way it should be every game, and Fordham gave the sell-out crowd many reasons to cheer. But they couldn't finish off the upset of #11 Butler at home, losing 68-63. Fordham has now lost six straight contests, and this once certainly bites.

Chris Marasco, WFUV Sports

Brad Johansen, a national basketball broadcaster for CBSSports Network and the voice of the Xavier Musketeers on Fox Sports Ohio was at the Cintas Center on Wednesday to see his Musketeers take on Fordham.  He may have been at the arena to watch Xavier, but surely he was also scouting the Rams before he commentates the Fordham v. Butler clash on Saturday afternoon in the Rose Hill Gym.
