It's been six days since the Fordham Rams punched their ticket to the NCAA Tournament and won their first Atlantic 10 Championship.  Despite being a bit under the weather, Coach Gaitley still showed her complete exuberance at being a champion.

A-10 Quarterfinals: From Buzzer Beaters to Dominance

by Kelly Kultys

Kelly Kultys :: WFUV Sports

I’ve been to some crazy sporting events in my life. I’ve seen the Jets clinch a playoff berth at home against Cincinnati on what was probably the coldest day of the year. I witnessed Palice Malice take home the 145th running of the Belmont Stakes. I’ve seen the Rangers win in overtime and I’ve seen the Yankees pull off an impressive ninth inning comeback. But I don’t think anything was as crazy as watching Saint Bonaventure’s Jordan Gathers nail a three as time expired to send his team to the semifinals of the A-10 tournament.

Big East Journal: Day 2 - McDermott.

by Kenny Ducey

I've seen few college basketball players over the years compare to what I saw last night from Doug McDermott. It was my first time seeing him in person, and I'm glad I'll get to watch him again tonight at 9:30 against Xavier after Creighton took it to 12-21 DePaul by a score of 84-62.

Big East Journal: Day 1 - That Was Something

by Kenny Ducey

While almost everyone in New York was busy watching the Knicks win their fifth-straight game, then continuing to follow the Phil Jackson-to-NY news, there was some basketball being played at Madison Square Garden. It was kind of weird basketball.

Sloppy may be the best term to describe it; there was an abundance of fouls and a ton of missed jumpshots. The only of the four teams to play that shot better than 36% in the first half, Georgetown, lost 60-56 to DePaul. Seton Hall, going just 5/20 from deep, fought off Butler 51-50.

Saint Joseph's Drops Fordham 87-72

The final score put the game much closer than it was for the first 35 minutes. The Saint Joseph Hawks jumped out to an early 7-0 lead and never looked back. Fordham went into the half down 12, with the score at 42-30, but the Hawks were just as hot out of half time. They went up 29 points with 13 to go in the game for their biggest lead of the day. The scoring outburst from Saint Joseph's was large in part thanks to senior guard Langston Galloway's offensive outburst. He scored 33 points and went 10 for 15 from 3-point distance. The Rams defense seemed to have few answers.
