Steven Samuels will have a chance to be his teams leader in the wake of four senior departures.
Buffalo opens up their season at home against Saint Peters. This is a return game for the 2009 bracket buster in which the Bulls pulled out an thrilling overtime victory.
On the three stage Harvey Birdman Warning System St Peters qualifies as a code yellow. I was tempted to make them a code blue, but I've seen UB punt away too many winnable games over the past few years.
The Story of Saint Peter's seems to be rebuilding. The team, who made it to the NCAA tournament last season, loast the bulk of its power players among them are the teams top four scorers.
What the Peacocks do return are solid role players, who will have to step into bigger roles. They are also bringing in one a very solid recruiting classes, led by Chris Prescott, a transfer from Saint Josephs. Prescott averaged five points a game during his second year and sat out last year after the transfer.
Also joining the program and expected to make significant contributions will be junior college transfer 6-7 forward Karee Ferguson and 5-9 freshman point guard Lamin Fulton.
