NEW YORK -- Fordham's season may have come to an early end on Thursday as the Rams fell to the Richmond Spiders, 70-55, in the second round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament at Barclays Center.
Even if Fordham does not get invited to postseason play, this season was a good start to Jeff Neubauer's career at Fordham. For the first time in years, the future looks bright for the Rams.
Fordham went 27-66 in the three seasons prior to this year. A big reason Neubauer was brought in from Eastern Kentucky was to bring some established success to the Fordham basketball program. The head coach was 188-134 with the Colonels, leading them to five 20-win seasons and two NCAA appearences. In his first season with Fordham, the Rams finished 17-13, securing their first winning season in nine years.
