Posse Award Recipient Conta Spans Seven Decades Of Fordham Hoops

For someone who admittedly attended “only a few games” while a student, Richie Conta (FCRH ’68) has sure made up for it since graduation.

Defense, ‘We Before Me’ Keep Gaitley’s Rams On Top

When Stephanie V. Gaitley took over the helm of the Fordham women’s basketball program in 2011, she preached defense and a “We before Me” attitude. It didn’t take long for that philosophy to turn into wins — two years later Gaitley’s charges won a school-record 26 games (12-2 in the Atlantic 10), and by 2013-14 the squad had claimed its first Atlantic 10 Championship and second NCAA Tournament appearance. Heady stuff, for sure, but Gaitley Read more…
