The Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament is back at Barclays Center from Wednesday through the championship game on Sunday afternoon.
All 14 of the A-10's school mascots, including the Fordham Ram, celebrated on Tuesday afternoon by visiting Bedford Library in Bed-Stuy where they participated in story time followed by a dance-off competition with approximately 50 children from PS 3 The Bedford Village School.
A-10 schools include: Davidson College; University of Dayton; Duquesne University; Fordham University; George Mason University; George Washington University; La Salle University; University of Massachusetts; University of Rhode Island; University of Richmond; St. Bonaventure University; Saint Joseph’s University; Saint Louis University; and VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University).
Nearly 12,000 tickets for the games have been donated to Brooklyn community groups, including Vet Tix, Tickets for Kids and Kids in Seats, in an effort to give back to the borough through the love of basketball.
