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.

Talking Fordham Basketball With CBSSN's Brad Johansen

Muskies’ voice and national commentator talks Fordham basketball.

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.
