Womens Hoops

You just cant say enough about the turn around happening with teh UB womens hoops team. What was a dismal out of conference slate which screamed "rebuilding year" for UB first year coach Felisha Legette-Jack has turned into a darn impressive conference run which has the Bulls at 8-7 are guaranteed to tie their best conference record since 2002 even if they lose their last regular season game!

Defense Leads Buffalo To Dominating Victory Over Kent State, 81-45 - Buffalo Athletics
The Bulls will conclude the regular season on Wednesday night when they host Akron at 7:00 pm. UB has also locked up a first round home game in the upcoming MAC Tournament and will be no worse than the #7 seed. That will take place on Saturday afternoon.

The young team, and their new coach, needed some time to tinker but in the end they created a team good enough to host a MAC play in game for the Q.

Womens Swimming

Individually they looked great!

Women's Swim Championships Conclude - Buffalo Athletics
Junior Brittney Kuras was named the league's Outstanding Swimmer for the second consecutive season as she won her third individual event and third relay race of the championships. Kuras and Mallory Morrell finished first and second as the Bulls claimed the 100-yard freestyle. Kuras, the defending champion in the event, established a new MAC meet and pool record with her victory in 48.89 seconds as Morrell touched second in 49.47 as both swimmers earned NCAA B qualifying standards.

The team is just a little shallow (pool humor!) to really compete with the best MAC squads, but they are getting there.

Lone Bull Running

Manley Competes at Alex Wilson Meet - Buffalo Athletics
University at Buffalo middle-distance track specialist Meghan Manley was the lone competitor at Saturday's Alex Wilson Invitational, hosted by the University of Notre Dame on Saturday.


Don't look now but the UB men have the best out of conference record in the MAC!

I don't follow college baseball so I cant speak as to the strength of schedule but what could have been a down year after losing Tom Murphy has seen an uptic, in no small part due to pitching!

Pitching Leads to Series Win at Longwood - Buffalo Athletics
One of the strongest pitching performances of the early season was more than enough to offset a slow day offensively for UB, as the Bulls (6-4) earned a 3-2 win in the rubber match of a three game weekend series at Longwood (4-5). Mike Burke earned his second win of the season after allowing just two runs in seven innings, and River McWilliams earned his third save of the season.


Not fairing nearly as well as the men are, but to be fair they were unable to play out their full slate due to the weather.

Saturday Softball Cancelled Due To Weather - Buffalo Athletics
Due to inclment weather and frigid temperatures, the University at Buffalo softball team will not play games against Marshall and Robert Morris this afternoon. These two games will not be made up. Yesterday it was announced that Buffalo's game on Sunday against Eastern Illinois had also been cancelled.

Mens Tennis

Split a weekend in New Jersey.

Men's tennis weekly release - Buffalo Athletics
The University at Buffalo men's tennis team traveled to New Jersey to face 55th ranked Princeton and then returned home to host NJIT on Sunday as the Bulls split the two matches. UB fell to the Tigers, 7-0, at Jadwin Gymnasium but the Bulls rebounded with a 5-2 victory over the Highlanders on Sunday at the Miller Tennis Center.

Buffalo did play Princeton way closer than the 7-0 score but in the end they were unable to win any of the several sudden death sets they forced.

Womens Tennis

Still undefeated after romping through the "Garden State".

SEVENTH HEAVEN: Bulls Remain Unbeaten With 6-1 Win Over NJIT - Buffalo Athletics
The University at Buffalo women's tennis team remained unbeaten on Sunday afternoon as they defeated New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), 6-1. The victory was UB's seventh straight to open the season. This was also UB's fifth straight 6-1 decision.

The ladies are not just winning, they are crushing their opponents.
