I didn't watch any of the first half, but Fordham only being down by 3 at halftime makes it seem like a competitive game.

Fordham is such an enigma in that they should be able to have a successful program but just haven’t been relevant at all for a long time.

Fordham is a really good private school with a lot of money, situated in the Bronx in the middle of some of the best talent in the country. As an institution of higher learning, other than Columbia and NYU (neither of which is really focused on basketball nor do they need to), it’s one of the best universities in the city academically and prestige-wise. It’s better from that standpoint than St. John’s in the Big East, Manhattan College and Iona College in the MAAC, Hofstra in the CAA, etc.

Rose Hill Gym isn’t the greatest, but it’s super historic and you can’t get much more than that in a place that’s as already built up and expensive as New York City without MAJOR money.

Truthfully, the A-10 can’t do any better as far as finding a school that has everything else in place outside of basketball that’s situated in the New York City market.

They just can’t get it going when it comes to MBB and it’s truly a shame.

Pretty nice trip for alums. That's about all they bring to the table as far as MBB goes. I guess it's not nothing.

I'll watch the St Joe's/LaSalle game when I get home from work. Seemed like a pretty good one. Just checking the ESPN Game cast, seems like both GW and Fordham wish no one had to win their game.

It’s weird because they consistently have a good women’s team and their baseball program is respectable.
