Fordham Men's Basketball

Rams Defeat Monmouth 82-71

by Alex Smith

The Fordham Rams closed out the 2012 calendar year the right away, defeating the Monmouth Hawks 82-71 at the Rose Hill Gym on New Year’s Eve.  With the win, the Rams have now won three out of their last five games. That may not sound like much, but the team has shown much improvement since their 1-8 start.

Fordham committed 14 turnovers in a very sloppy first half. Those turnovers, combined with the fact that Chris Gaston and Branden Frazier, the team’s two top scorers, combined for just 8 first half points, had the Rams down 33-28 at intermission.

Fordham Falls to Georgia Tech 74-48

The Fordham Rams fell to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets 73-48 in what was only the third time in school history that the Rams played in the state of Georgia. The Rams battled and kept it close early, but the home team from the ACC pounded the Rams in the second half on the way to a dominating win.

As they have done all season, the Yellow Jackets relied on a balanced offensive attack. Big men Daniel Miller and Robert Carter, Jr. had their way down low, combining for 28 points and 10 rebounds. Georgia Tech also capitalized on 14 Fordham turnovers.

The Fordham Rams (2-9) were defeated by the Connecticut Huskies (9-2) in Hartford on Friday night, 88-73. UConn led by 29 at the half and seemingly never looked back. Ryan Boatwright has 26 points for the Huskies, as did Branden Frazier for Fordham, good for a career high.

State of the Rams with Coach Tom Pecora

The Fordham Men’s basketball team is not off to the start that they had in mind. Their early season struggles can be attributed to an inexperienced roster, playing just one of their first eleven games at the Rose Hill Gym and the loss of senior forward Chris Gaston, who has led the team in scoring and rebounding the last three seasons.

Rams Complete Incredible Comeback: Stun Princeton 63-60

With three minutes and twenty-two seconds remaining in the second half at the Barclays Center, there was a media timeout on the floor. The Princeton Tigers (3-6) led the Fordham Rams (2-8) 56-46. Many fans may have expected the young Rams team to hang their heads and give up. That was not the case. The Rams closed the game on a 17-4 run after that timeout. Junior guard Branden Frazier would score 13 of his 19 points in the final three plus minutes of game time to lead the Rams to a remarkable to 63-60 win over Princeton.

The Rams fell to St. John's in their annual trip to Madison Square Garden, 58-47. It was a game in which Fordham led 27-24 at halftime, but the Red Storm gained momentum as the second half started. The big names in this game were sophomore Ryan Canty for Fordham and freshman Chris Obekpa for St. John's. Obekpa had a career high 11 blocks, also good for a Red Storm single game record.  Obekpa entered the game averaging over 4 blocks a game, one of the highest marks in the nation.  Ryan Canty had another career night with 15 points and a career high 16 rebounds, good for his first career double double.
