Talking Fordham Basketball With CBSSN's Brad Johansen

by Mike Watts

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.

Fordham Rally Falls Short at Xavier

Xavier’s home court advantage is well documented – they are 51-1 against Atlantic 10 opponents in the Cintas Center since 2007.  That home court advantage was significant tonight as the Musketeers used a strong second half run, fueled by a near sellout crowd, to finish off Fordham.  Mandell Thomas dropped a career high 23 points, but the Rams (6-19, 2-8 A10) fell to Xavier (14-9, 7-3 A10) in Cincinnati, 79-66.

La Salle Pummels Fordham 89-53

by Alex Smith

Tom Pecora tried to change things up by inserting Jermaine Meyers and Ryan Rhoomes into the starting lineup, but it wasn't too effective. The La Salle Explorers jumped out to an early 10-0 lead and never looked back, crushing the Rams 89-53.

The Fordham Rams are getting into the home stretch of their regular season. With less than ten games remaining on the schedule, the Rams must battle to make the Atlantic 10 tournament. On Saturday morning, Mack Rosenberg and I sat down with Rams’ Head Coach Tom Pecora.

Entering Wednesday night’s contest with Saint Louis, Fordham had a respectable home record of 4-3 compared to a dismal 0-11 mark in true road games. Many fans probably hoped the home court advantage would aid the Rams against Saint Louis, but that was not the case. The Billikens demolished Fordham 90-73 in a game that they controlled from start to finish.

Tom Pecora joined me in his weekly Fordham Focus spot on One on One Saturday afternoon. We spoke mainly about the growth of this team in its previous two games, a 4 point loss to St. Joe's and a 3 point win against URI. Pecora agrees that Branden Frazier has used Chris Gaston's absence to his advantage in terms of his growth as leader of the team.

Fordham's Rams Fall To VCU's, 81-65

by Mack Rosenberg

Fordham dropped to 6-16 overall after losing to VCU last night in Richmond, 81-65. The pressure defense from VCU's Rams forced Fordham into 22 turnovers, and resulted in 32 points off those turnovers. That's where the game was won for the Atlantic 10's newest member. Fordham got double digit scoring performances from Mandell Thomas (16 points) and Brian Smith (17 points). They shot better than VCU, and won the rebounding battle, but ultimately couldn't hang with VCU.

Fordham Scrapes By Rhode Island, 66-63

by Mack Rosenberg

Travion Leonard (2) goes for the tip-in.

Fordham used the crowd, and some veteran leadership to propel them a 66-63 victory over Rhode Island on Saturday at the Rose Hill Gym. Like the last home game the Rams played against UMass, the battle of the Rams went right down the wire and foul shooting was the key.
