Fordham has had some close games lately, and Saturday's regular season finale against George Washington would be no different. The Rams fell to the Colonials 70-67 in a game where no team had a lead of larger than 5 points.
Tom Pecora joined me ahead of Fordham's regular season finale against George Washington on Saturday. We discussed the team's previous game, a 12-point loss to URIon Wednesday plus what the state of the team is heading into the Atlantic 10 tournament. We also discussed the recent crowds at the Rose Hill Gym and how coach believes fan support impacts the team's play.
Jim O’Connell joined Anthony Pucik and me as One on One got ready for college basketball in March. O’Connell told us which conference he thinks is the toughest and how far Wichita State will go in this year’s national tournament. He also told us how he has not lost all confidence in Syracuse despite their recent slide and he gave us his pick for who might be a dark horse to bust some brackets this year (here’s a hint: Fordham has played them!).
Kenny Ducey and DJ Sixsmith sit down with Fordham WBB Head Coach Stephanie Gaitley as she prepares her team for a Friday matchup with Duquesne in the Quarterfinals of the A10 Tournament.
Fordham began the game with the same defensive intensity that they showed in the second half of their close loss to LaSalle on Saturday. They went shot for shot with URI down the stretch of first half and went into halftime with a 2-point lead. But, URI went on a run around the ten minute mark of the second half that Fordham couldn't quite answer.
Jason Concepcion (@Netw3rk) of Grantland joined us to discuss the saddening Knicks, and what the remainder of the year holds for some of the top teams in the East and West. We also take a look at how many more games the Sixers could realistically win this year, the Nets' return to .500, and make some picks for Wednesday night's games.
LaSalle's Tyrone Garland forced up a desprate shot from 12-feet out on the left baseline which was deflected in the air by Fordham Senior Branden Frazier. The buzzer sounded at the same time and it seemed like the Rams had come all the way back from 15 point defecit in the first half to send the game to overtime.
Mack Rosenberg and Chris Marasco talk to Fordham Men's Basketball Head Coach Tom Pecora about the team's latest loss against VCU and discuss the matchup with the La Salle Explorers.
Afterwards, Mack and Chris stick around with Matt Moro and Kelly Kultys to discuss the issue of fan support at the Rose Hill Gym after Coach Pecora saying that he was disappointed with the crowd turnout at the VCU game.
As spring training kicks off, Kelly and Matt were joined by ESPN The Magazine senior baseball writer and network contributor Buster Olney to discuss the upcoming baseball season.
First Buster broke down the upcoming seasons for the two New York squads, including an outlook on Masahiro Tanaka for the Yankees and who on the Bronx Bombers might make the biggest impact, and also the eventual call up of Noah Syndergaard of the Mets and Sandy Alderson’s claim that the Amazins could win 90 games.
