Heading into last season, Tom Pecora said it’s time for his program to turn the corner and become a winning team. After what the Rams did in his first two seasons, who could blame him? Wins over top 25 Harvard, ACC opponent Georgia Tech, and then Big East foe St. John’s gave Fordham fans every reason to have high expectations.

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports and WFAN stopped by the Rose Hill Gym tonight after a trip to Arthur Avenue to watch the Fordham Men's Basketball team during a summer open gym session. The long time college basketball insider took a few minutes to chat about the state of Fordham basketball and the evolving landscape of the Atlantic 10.

As the academic year heads towards the home stretch, the Fordham athletic season also heads toward the finish line. As is the case every month, Fordham Athletic Director David Roach stopped by the WFUV studios to talk all things Fordham sports.
The Fordham Rams Men’s Basketball program has won just eight games in the Atlantic 10 over the past five seasons. Those struggles could finally be coming to an end as Christ the King High School sensation Jon Severe will be wearing a Fordham jersey next season.

Flash back to last April.
It’s late in recruiting season, but the Rams manage to get a 6’ 1” Point Guard out of Blair Academy by the name of Jermaine Myers. He’ll add depth to the backcourt and compete with Fatty McMillan for minutes. The team enters the offseason on a higher note than years past; while Kervin Bristol is gone, Chris Gaston will surely have a monster senior campaign.
