Bronx, N.Y. – Fordham University head coach Keith Urgo was named the 2023 Atlantic 10 Men’s Basketball Coach of the Year it was announced by the conference office today. Additionally grad student guard Darius Quisenberry was named Second Team All-Atlantic 10 while grad student forward Khalid Moore was named to the Third Team and junior guard Kyle Rose was placed on the All-Defensive Team.
Urgo becomes the second Fordham head coach to earn coach of the year honors, joining Nick Macarchuk, who won the award in 1999.
In his first year leading the program, Urgo has guided the Rams to their best season of the past 30 years. Fordham closed out the regular season with a 24-7 overall record, including a 12-6 record in the Atlantic 10, good for a second-place tie in the final standings. The Rams’ 24 wins are the most since the 1990-1991 team won 25 while their 12 conference wins are the most ever for the Rams in any conference.
Quisenberry and Moore become the first pair of Rams to earn All-Atlantic 10 accolades in the same year since Bryant Dunston (Second Team) and Marcus Stout (Honorable Mention) in 2007. Quisenberry leads the Rams in scoring, averaging 17.0 ppg, sixth best in the Atlantic 10, to go with 3.8 rpg and 94 assists. He ranks fifth in the A-10 in free throw percentage (.847) and is tied for ninth in 3-pointers/game (2.3). Earlier this year, Quisenberry became the 648th player in NCAA history to score more than 2,000 points.
Moore, a grad transfer from Georgia Tech, is averaging 15.3 ppg, second on the team, along with a team-high 6.5 rpg. He also has 55 assists, 35 steals, and 11 blocks. Moore ranks 12th in the Atlantic 10 in scoring, 10th in rebounding, and 14th in field goal percentage (.485).
Rose earned his first All-Defensive Team nod, as the Rams placed a player on the team for the second straight year (Chuba Ohams was named to the team last year). Rose leads the team in steals with 57 and his average of 1.8/game is third best in the Atlantic 10. He is also averaging 7.4 ppg and 3.1 rpg in 2022-2023.  Beyond the stat sheet, Rose has helped lock down some of the Atlantic 10’s most prolific offensive talents, anchoring a Fordham defense that ranks fourth in the conference in scoring defense and third in defensive efficiency according to KenPom.
