The Pep Band Perspective

Atlantic Ten

Timeout. Media Timeout.”

That’s our cue to play. And by “our,” I mean the pep band. I work at WFUV, but I don’t call basketball games, I play music for them. As President of the Fordham Band, I help lead the group of rugby shirts next to the student section. So, in way I’m helping provide “color” to the game, but it’s quite more than that.

Prior to this season, head coach Stephanie Gaitley had never been to the third round of any postseason tournament. The Fordham Rams changed that with a 58-44 victory over the Boston University Terriers in the 2nd round of the WNIT. The Maroon and White takes its show on the road for the first time during this tournament against 2012 WNIT runner-up James Madison University.

This wasn’t the way it was supposed to end for Fordham. With a 12-0 run to begin the game, it looked like the Rams were on their way to an NCAA Tournament appearance for the first time since 1994. However, with under 10 seconds to go, the clock finally struck midnight on this magical season as freshman Samantha Clark was whistled for a questionable offensive foul giving St. Joes their first A-10 championship since 1999.

An Open Letter to the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Selection Committee

Mike Watts, WFUV Sports

I write this open letter to you to implore you to look deeper than RPI, SOS, and wins and losses.  I ask that you select on more variables than simple statistics, because they often fail to grasp the growth and maturation process of a basketball team. I ask that you consider a few things, statistical and otherwise, when you consider the Fordham Rams for an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament...

It wasn’t supposed to end this way.  A magical run to the Atlantic 10 Final by Fordham women’s basketball ended in bitter disappointment at the Barclays Center, as the Rams fell to the Hawks of Saint Joseph’s, 47-46.  Saint Joseph’s, by virtue of their tournament victory, claimed the Atlantic 10’s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament and the league’s championship trophy.  For Fordham, the loss dimmed hopes of an NCAA tournament berth as the Rams wait to hear of their postseason fate on Monday night.

The Fordham Rams will continue their magical 2012-2013 campaign at the Barclays Center this Saturday night at 7PM against the Saint Joseph’s Hawks in the Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship Game.  After finishing the regular season at 22-7 and adding two more victories in the conference tournament, it is safe to say that this team exceeded outside expectations. Throughout the year, the Rams have surpassed various milestones with the latest being an Atlantic 10 semi-final appearance, a semi-final victory, not to mention their head coach picking up her 500th career win. Not too bad for a team that was ranked number eleven in the A10’s pre-season poll.

The Fordham Rams have come a long way since game one back on November 9th against the University of Albany. At 22-7 and 11-2 in conference, the Rams finished the regular season as the third best team in the A-10. Its been a historic year for the Maroon and White, but it is far from over as Fordham prepares for the Atlantic 10 tournament in Philadelphia this weekend.
