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.

Brad Johansen, a national basketball broadcaster for CBSSports Network and the voice of the Xavier Musketeers on Fox Sports Ohio was at the Cintas Center on Wednesday to see his Musketeers take on Fordham. He may have been at the arena to watch Xavier, but surely he was also scouting the Rams before he commentates the Fordham v. Butler clash on Saturday afternoon in the Rose Hill Gym.
