NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – The Fordham University men’s team learned its 2021-2022 Atlantic 10 pairings from the league office today, including the home-and-home opponents for the Rams.
The Atlantic 10 Conference will play an 18-game conference men’s basketball schedule in 2021-2022, the eighth straight year the league has had an 18-game slate. The A-10 announced Thursday the team schedule pairings for the upcoming season.
For the eighth straight year, the Fordham men’s Atlantic 10 18-game schedule will consist nine home and nine away contests, with the Rams facing five opponents in a home-and-home series. First-year head coach Kyle Neptune‘s squad will face Davidson, Duquesne, George Washington, La Salle, and Massachusetts twice during the 2021-2022 season.
In addition to the home games with Davidson, Duquesne, George Washington, La Salle, and Massachusetts, the Rams will host George Mason, Rhode Island, Richmond, and VCU in the historic Rose Hill Gym.
Besides the return trips to Davidson, Duquesne, George Washington, La Salle, and Massachusetts, Fordham will play Atlantic 10 Conference road contests at Dayton, St. Bonaventure, Saint Joseph’s, and Saint Louis in 2021-2022.
The A-10 returns to a normal schedule following a unique 2020-21 season in which the conference navigated the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. St. Bonaventure won the regular season and A-10 Championship and were joined by VCU in earning NCAA Tournament bids. It was the 15th straight NCAA Tournament and 35th time overall that the A-10 earned multiple bids into the big dance.
The complete 2021-22 conference schedule with dates and times, as well as national television information, will be released at a later date. There will be 126 conference games this upcoming season which will allow teams to face each league opponent once and five teams twice. The 2022 Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Championship will be played March 9-13 and will return to Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.
