Fordham Focus 3/15: Tom Pecora

by Mike Watts

WFUV Sports

With another season in the books for Fordham men's basketball, coach Tom Pecora joined us to wrap up the year and look ahead to the offseason.

Pecora answered questions about his future and that of his program head on. He talked about the next generation of Fordham players and the impact of Branden Frazier, who followed him to Fordham from Hofstra four years ago.

We also discussed the play of his forwards down the final stretch of the year and how he thinks Fordham's three remaining starting guards can improve over the offseason.

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

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.

Fordham Falls to Dayton, 87-74, Eliminated from A-10 Tournament

by Anthony Pucik

After a thrilling game yesterday against George Mason in the Atlantic-10 Tournament play-in game, Fordham was unable to pull out a victory against Dayton in the next round of the tournament, losing 87-74. 

Dayton was up 50-31 at the end of the first half, but a 12-5 run by Fordham to start the second half brought them closer. The Rams would cut the Flyers' lead to as little as five, but would see Dayton start to pull away, a team that shot 58.8 percent from the floor on the afternoon. 

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.

The Fordham Rams had lost eight games in row coming into tonight’s opening round in the Atlantic 10 tournament. One more loss would be the end of the season. Thanks to four players scoring in double figures and a career high 19 rebounds by Ryan Canty, Fordham lives on to play another game. The Rams prevailed 70-67 tonight over George Mason.
