It has been since 2007 that the Fordham Men’s Basketball team had seen the Quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament, but it was Head Coach Kyle Neptune and a revamped Fordham University Men’s Basketball team that will etch their names into the history books as the team to achieve that feat.
Fordham University has made a ton of changes to their athletics Department, from their new Athletic Director in Ed Kull, as well as having Neptune being their head coach this season. All of the changes have led to a positive result for the Rams, who were able to defeat the #9-seeded George Mason by a final of 54-49.
1495 Sports is proud to bring the following Press Conference from after the Fordham 54-49 victory over George Mason:
Leading the way for the Rams was Chuba Ohams, who had a double-double with 20 points and 16 steals. Also having an outstanding afternoon was Antrell Charlton who had 11 points and seven rebounds.
Ohams has been outstanding for the Rams as he now has a double-double in 21 of the last 29 games and is among the leaders in the Atlantic 10 and the NCAA in rebounding.

This was the 14 meeting between the two teams, as the Rams now have a 9-5 record. Fordham is 3-1 all-time against George Mason in the A-10 Championship. One of the biggest keys for the Rams was their bench as they were able to outscore the Patriots 26-14.
George Mason had themselves some outstanding play, including that from Josh Oduro, who was dominant in the low post. Oduro finished the night with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Ronald Polite III had himself 10 points to round out the scoring for George Mason.
The next step for the Rams will be a tough one, as they will now face the #1-seeded Davidson on Friday, March 11, at Capital One Arena with the tip set for Noon. Fans wanting to watch the game can do so on the USA Network.
