Fordham Rams Basketball Schedule
Rose Hill Gymnasium in the Bronx, New York is home to the Fordham Rams of the
Atlantic 10 and the arena is one of the most exciting places to be during the entirety of the college basketball season. last
year the Rams had their fair share of struggles going 2-14 in A-10 conference play and finishing the regular season at the
bottom of the standings. Fordham showed promise last season though and will be returning one of the best players in the conference
in Jon Severe who should only improve during his sophomore season. Expect the Rams to have a major turnaround this season
and shoot up the conference standings looking to pile up big wins to make it back to the NCAA Tournament.
It is never
an easy row to hoe in the A-10, going up against the likes of the Virginia Commonwealth Rams, the Saint Joseph's Hawks, the
St. Louis Billikens, the George Washington Colonials, and others, but this is precisely what the Rams will need to do. With
a more experienced team entering the season there is no reason not to believe that Fordham could pull of some big time upsets,
especially at Rose Hill Gymnasium where they are playing in front of some of the most passionate fans in all of college hoops.
Tickets to see the Rams take on big time foes at Rose Hill Gymnasium always sell out quickly so be sure to get yours from
StubHub as soon as you can.

Richmond, Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, George Mason, Davidson, and Fordham. There are several classic rivalries
within the conference including the cross-town rivalry between La Salle and Saint Joe's who are both former Big 5 members,
the in-state rivalry between VCU and Richmond, and the "Battle of the Rams" between Rhode Island and Fordham. With the recent
additions of teams like Davidson, Virginia Commonwealth, and Saint Louis look for new rivalries to develop within the conference
as these teams continually to face off against one another several times a year during A-10 play. If you are looking to see
