Fordham Plays Ram Tough

Fordham enters after its best win of the season, a 75-65 home victory over A-10 leader Saint Louis on Tuesday that extended its winning streak to five. The Rams held Saint Louis to one field goal in the final seven minutes to overcome a four-point deficit and record their fifth straight conference victory. Fordham had 18 wins before Feb. 1 for the second time in 30 years, and has tied for the best league start in team history.

The Rams revolve around fifth-year senior guard 6’1″ Darius Quisenberry (17.2 points, 3.2 assists, 48 threes), who transferred in from Youngstown State last season. This year’s portal find has been forward 6’7″ Khalid Moore (15.3 points, 6.7 rebounds).

The pair had 47 points against Saint Louis. Moore, a New York native who spent four seasons at Georgia Tech, has doubled his scoring and rebounding totals from last season while shooting 50 percent from the floor.

The Rams have won five straight since first-year coach Keith Urgo moved freshman sharp-shooter 6’3″ Will Richardson and senior center 6’10” Rostyslav Novitskyi into the starting lineup in a victory over La Salle on Jan. 14.

Richardson has made 12 of 18 threes in the since, and he is shooting 45.6 percent from distance this season. The Rams held Saint Louis to 11.8 points below its season scoring average, the fourth time in the last five games that the Rams held an opponent to below their season scoring average.

Richmond Hits Hard Times

Richmond has lost four straight A-10 games for the first time since 2019 after its 66-62 home loss Wednesday to first-division St. Bonaventure.

The Spiders beat Iowa in the first round of the NCAA Tournament last season after an 11-year absence in the NCAAs but despite similar shooting and rebounding numbers, they have been unable to replicate that success in their Princeton-style offense that relies on ball movement and success from the perimeter.


Senior wing 6’7″ Tyler Burton leads the Spiders in scoring and rebounding  (19.1 points, 7.7 boards) and is the principal offensive weapon and natural focal point of opposing defenses, making success from the perimeter all the more necessary. The Spiders have not shot better than 43.5 percent from the field in the last six games and have cracked 30 percent from distance only one.

Richmond has struggled to find a replacement for graduated point guard Jacob Gilyard, who holds the Division I career record for steals. The Spiders are averaging two more turnovers and two fewest assists per game this season without him.

Fordham vs Richmond Prediction

Fordham has gathered momentum as the season has progressed and has become a legitimate contender in the A-10 for the first time in more than a decade behind all-league-caliber players Quisenberry and Moore.

Richmond has not been able to run its precision offense to the degree that has made it so successful in the past. The Spiders are 2-8 ATS in the A-10 this season, and there is little reason to think that will change.

Pick: Fordham +3.5 (-110) 

Season CBK: 31-18 ATS
