There's never a dull moment in New York City basketball.

When the axe fell on Fordham coach Dereck Whittenburg on Thursday afternoon, it gave Joel Wright the opening he needed to pull his verbal pledge from the Rams. Wright, a 6-foot-5 swingman who played last season at Jefferson (Brooklyn), is prepping this year at Central Carolina Sports Academy in Greensboro, N.C.

Wright enrolled at Central Carolina in hopes of recording a qualifying SAT score.
