It’s Year 2 of the Jeff Neubauer Era at Fordham, and it seems to feature a lot of the same things that made the inaugural season successful: a hyper-aggressive defense that loves to create havoc in the half-court and wear teams down mentally to go with an offense that is much more patient, but likes to work inside out and shoot three-pointers when available.
The Rams rode those things to a 17-14 record, their first winning mark since 2006-07 and only the second in a quarter-century, dating back to when they were playing in the Patriot League (Fordham also made a postseason appearance since 1992, albeit in the CBI).

Jeff Neubauer gave his team the goal of improving on defense and through conference play Fordham has shown the ability to shut down their opponents. Continue reading “Fordham Finding Their Defensive Presence In Atlantic 10 Play”
AMHERST, Mass. – In an instant gratification society, baby steps are not much noticed and even less appreciated, even if they take place on national television.
Beating a UMass team that has had trouble getting out of its own way of late 78-72 in overtime before a small, mostly grumbling crowd at the Mullins Center will not send shockwaves through the land or turn Fordham into instant NCAA Tournament or even Atlantic 10 contenders.
For Fordham junior Jon Severe, it was easy to have a new mindset this season under first year head coach Jeff Neubuaer. Continue reading “Fordham Junior Jon Severe Embracing A New Mindset”
