Despite not squaring off this season, the Fordham University and Manhattan College men’s basketball series will resume in the 2023-2024 season; it was announced today.
The two schools were unable to find a suitable date that worked for both institutions on the 2022-2023 schedule but will meet in the Rose Hill Gym for the 2023-2024 game.
In a joint statement both Directors of Athletics, Ed Kull and Marianne Reilly stated that the institutions respect the tradition and history associated with the cross town rivalry. “While we are disappointed that we will not be playing the long-standing series this year, we are looking forward to both programs resuming competition next year and in the future,” said Kull and Reilly.
A long term contract will be created and established for the first time and will ensure the tradition continues. The series will resume in the Rose Hill Gym in the Fall of 2023.
