“We’ve got to get through this one tomorrow,” Green said, “but there’s no secret Fordham is a really good team. They’re 3-0 in the league right now. We’ve got to play them twice, but this first one on our home floor, it’s a game you’ve got to get. Hopefully, we have a huge crowd. Last year when we played them at home, it was to clinch the A-10 regular-season championship. We had an unbelievable crowd, and that really pushed us and we had a great game.”
