RECORD SO FAR
11-6 (5-2 MAC)
If UB is playing on campus when the conference seeding starts to settle Buffalo can look at Ball State as the reason. The Bulls traveled to Munice and coughed up a hairball against the hapless cards.
The Kraken, Javon McCrea has been everything UB fans have expected. In the Mid American Conference McCrea is second in scoring, second in rebounding, second in field goal percentage, eighth in steals, and third in blocks. All of this despite being outside of the top ten in the conference for minutes per game.
Joshua Freelove, the senior hardship transfer, is turning in a very strong season for Coach Hurley and the Bulls. He is turning in 12.6 points a game and can be an incredibly potent three point shooter.
PLAYER(S) WHO NEED TO STEP UP
The Bench.... Buffalo's Bench players have turned in some great games but a big part of the reason UB lost to Ball State was because the Bench was non existent. The talent is there but the consistency is not where it needs to be.
First-year coach Bobby Hurley is only three games away from matching the win total that Reggie Witherspoon achieved last season. The additions he brought in like Joshua Freelove are playing key roles in UB's success and recruiting has been good.
February 12 -at Miami
If the Bulls don't figure out how to play on the road this season will play out with UB possible having to host a "play in game" rather than enjoy a bye in Cleveland.
