he Fordham Men's basketball team opens up it's 2013-2014 campaign this Friday against St. Francis at the Rose Hill Gym. For the Rams, it's the start of a new era as Chris Gaston (over 1,000 points and averaged a double-double at Fordham) has graduated. Myself and Chris Marasco preview the season in this special podcast, and there are quite a few points to hit on. We spoke about those topics and much more, with interviews from Tom Pecora, Branden Frazier, Travion Leonard and Jon Severe.

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.

Fordham used the crowd, and some veteran leadership to propel them a 66-63 victory over Rhode Island on Saturday at the Rose Hill Gym. Like the last home game the Rams played against UMass, the battle of the Rams went right down the wire and foul shooting was the key.
