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.
Tom Pecora joined me ahead of Fordham's regular season finale against George Washington on Saturday. We discussed the team's previous game, a 12-point loss to URIon Wednesday plus what the state of the team is heading into the Atlantic 10 tournament. We also discussed the recent crowds at the Rose Hill Gym and how coach believes fan support impacts the team's play.
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!).
