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

by Anthony Pucik

WFUV Sports 

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.

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!).
