As the countdown to the start of practice draws closer, Fordham University today released the second half of their schedule, their 16-game Atlantic 10 ledger that features eight games on the road and eight more at Rose Hill Gym before the Rams compete in the Atlantic 10 Tournament at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Following Fordham's final nonconference game, a December 30th matchup at Siena, the Rams travel to Pittsburgh to open A-10 play at Duquesne on January 8th, with a two-game homestand against Richmond and Dayton ensuing on the 11th and 15th, respectively. After traveling to the Gateway City for a January 18th collision with reigning A-10 champion Saint Louis, Fordham returns to Rose Hill to welcome George Mason into the Bronx on January 22nd, a matchup that precedes road games at Massachusetts on January 26th and Virginia Commonwealth on the 29th.
Fordham opens the month of February on the 1st by welcoming Dan Hurley and Rhode Island to Rose Hill in what is sure to be a close, and perhaps confrontational, battle after a hard-fought second straight Fordham victory last January saw Hurley border on uncontrollable, as his team became excessively physical, with the coach himself attempting to provoke Tom Pecora in the second half. One week later, the Rams head to the nation's capital to face George Washington on the 8th, four days before St. Bonaventure awaits Fordham at Rose Hill on February 12th. Two road games at Richmond on February 15th and Saint Joseph's on the 22nd are next on the agenda before Shaka Smart makes his Rose Hill debut on February 27th, when VCU faces Fordham in the back end of their home-and-home series.
The Rams remain at Rose Hill for the next encounter, a March 1st meeting with reigning Sweet 16 participant La Salle, with a road trip to Rhode Island on March 5th sandwiching Fordham's regular season finale against George Washington on March 8th at Rose Hill in what will be senior day for guard Branden Frazier.
