Who's Talking Bull? The MAC is done with Hoops...

The Mac Daily - Major coverage for a major conference.
The lights went out on the Mid-American Conference basketball season on Tuesday night after the three remaining teams were all eliminated from their respective tournaments.

Well, That Ended Abruptly - Hustle Belt
Buffalo: Who the heck knows. They were eating much of Iona's dust, often choking on it. I knew I'd seen enough when, down 13 in the final minute, Byron Mulkey drove for a layup and Javon McCrea was called for an offensive goaltend. Still, for a No. 8 seed in the MAC, they defied expectations by not only playing in a postseason tournament, but winning two road games in it. Mulkey departs this team, as does marginal reserve Jawaan Alston, but there are some demonic forwards left on the team and while inexperience haunted portions of this team, they may be more well-rounded for next year.

Tired Bulls fade late, season ends - UB Men's Basketball - The Buffalo News
NEW ROCHELLE -- Buffalo's Tuesday night game against Iona marked the team's 34th game this season, most for any UB men's basketball team. It also marked the Bulls' third postseason game, the most since joining Division I. (Note: The News is wrong here. The Iona Game was our 6th game, over three tournaments, since joining division one)

UB Started Spring Ball Today, so did the Bowels...

Temple Football Forever: Practice? Yeah, we're talking about practice
There's a saying in the deep south about the three biggest sports seasons being college football No. 1, NASCAR No. 2 and college football spring practice No. 3. I have no doubt that's true in places like Alabama and Georgia and, maybe, Florida. Baseball and basketball have yet to make inroads into that Holy Trinity. Up here, not so much. I doubt very many people in Philadelphia realize Temple football spring practice officially begins today. I do. Now you do, too.
