Rams Men's Basketball Falls to Pitt in Preseason NIT- Nov. 12, 2012 Final Stats | Photo Gallery Pittsburgh, Pa. - Over 70 years ago, Fordham and Pittsburgh met in Madison Square Garden in the first ever televised college basketball game, a game won by the Panthers. Tonight, the teams squared off again and again the game was televised. And unfortunately for the Rams the result was the same as Pittsburgh defeated Fordham, 86-51, in the first round of the 2012 NIT Season Tip-Off in the Petersen Event Center. With the loss, the Rams fall to 0-2 on the season, while Pitt remains undefeated at 2-0. If the game had a soundtrack, Olivia Newtown John would have one of her songs on the cd as the Panthers got physical, outrebounding the Rams, 36-24, outscoring Fordham in the paint, 42-12, and forcing 19 Ram turnovers. "One of the keys to the game we told our guys was not to be out physicaled," said Fordham head coach Tom Pecora. "Pitt is a very good basketball team. It was like eighth or ninth graders playing the seniors in high school. But we've got to learn from this how to play more physical." http://msn.foxsports.com/collegebasketball/story/Pittsburgh-86-Fordham-51-49417505 http://www.fordhamsports.com/sports/m-baskbl/recaps/111212aaa.html
