Fordham Head Coach Tom Pecora Reacts to Signing of Jon Severe

New York’s Mr. Basketball is Headed to the Bronx

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. The 6’2 guard from Brooklyn is head coach Tom Pecora’s biggest recruiting splash since taking the job three years ago.

Good Mix of Upperclassmen and Recruits Could Make for Better 2013-14

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.

Fordham Focus 3/9: One on One With Tom Pecora

Rams Coach Talks End of Season, Conference Shake-Up, Gaston’s Career and More

On the morning of Saturday March 9th, in Olean, NY, Mack Rosenberg and I sat down with Fordham Men’s Basketball Head Coach Tom Pecora for the final time this season. Fordham’s final game with Saint Bonaventure was just hours away, so we took the chance to look back on this season, and look ahead to next year.

Rams Take Season Finale 76-72 over Saint Bonaventure

Gaston Goes Out On Top, Securing First Fordham A10 Road Win Since 2009

Heading into their regular season finale at St. Bonaventure, the Fordham Rams didn’t appear to have much to play for. They had no chance of making the A10 tournament, and they hadn’t won a road conference game in four calendar years. On the other side, the Bonnies had everything to play for. A win for the Bonnies put them into postseason play. It was also Senior Day at the Reilly Center. Despite the odds, the young Fordham team played hard for 40 minutes, and their senior leader Chris Gaston stepped up when it mattered most, leading the Rams to an improbable 76-72 win to finish out the year.

Owls Drop Fordham in 2012-13 Rose Hill Finale, 74-55

Chris Gaston's 100th career game is more of the same for Fordham

Fordham (6-24, 2-13 A10) finished out their 2013 home slate with a 19 point loss to Temple (22-8, 10-5 A10) Wednesday night, 74-55. Fordham led 12-6 with about 13 minutes to go in the first half, but scored only five points for the remainder of the half and found themselves down by 11 at the break. This put them in a hole they would never climb out of before a sparse Rose Hill Gym crowd.

Fordham Hangs Tough But Struggles Against Stifling George Washington Defense

The Fordham Rams have lost 23 consecutive games on the road, and haven't won a road game in conference play since 2009. All of this the result of last night's 68-60 loss at George Washington, a game in which the Rams played down to their opponent and make mistake.

Fordham Loses Dogfight to Butler, 68-63

Rams Feed Off Crowd And Give Bulldogs All They Can Handle

The atmosphere at the Rose Hill Gym Saturday evening was the way it should be every game, and Fordham gave the sell-out crowd many reasons to cheer. But they couldn't finish off the upset of #11 Butler at home, losing 68-63. Fordham has now lost six straight contests, and this once certainly bites.
