Jamir Livingston, a three-year starter at tailback for St. Joseph's Prep, has orally committed to play for Fordham. "I liked the school a lot on my visit there over the weekend," he said. "It's not that far from home, but far enough. And the idea of going to school in the city of New York excited me. " Last season, in helping the Hawks go 10-3 overall and reach the Catholic League Red Division championship game, the 5-foot-7, 165-pound Livingston rushed for 1,390 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Marcus Stout of Fordham is getting into a habit of beating Richmond with late shots. The first one may be considered ho-hum. A layup with 2 seconds to play in a regular-season game in January. The second, which occurred yesterday, was more memorable. Stout, who finished with 17 points, converted a three-point play with 29.5 seconds to play and fifth-seeded Fordham (18-11) avoided an early upset with a 63-61 win in the opening round of the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament at Boardwalk Hall.
