It's a relatively busy weekend for UB's Olympic Sports teams. The tennis teams continue their alternation from weekend to weekend, while the cross country teams get back on the horse after a weekend off. Both soccer teams look to turn things around after a tough weekend, while volleyball heads to their final nonconference tournament.
Men's Tennis heads to New Jersey to compete in the Princeton Ivy+ Invitational, where fourteen teams will join the Ivy Eight in a three-day tournament spanning a number of draws. The official tournament link can be found below. I'll provide updates on Twitter as the draws start to narrow down a bit, and will cover things in more depth at the next Tennis/Cross Country/Rowing Roundup.
Women's Soccer will play their final nonconference match of the season this Friday in yet another single-match weekend. The Bulls will travel once again for a 4:00 PM contest, but this time will only go as far as Ithaca and the Cornell Big Red. It looks like there will be a link for live stats but I'm unsure about video right now.
Men's Soccer enjoys a match at UB Stadium tonight before a road match Sunday. Tonight they'll face off with Detroit before traveling on Sunday for an afternoon contest in Pittsburgh with Duquesne. You can expect UB's usual home stream for tonight, while it looks like there will be video for Duquesne, as well. Check our Twitter shortly before kickoff, or follow the link at the schedule part of ubbulls.com for the stream.
I'll have live coverage of tonight's match against the Titans. Hope to see you there!
Both Cross Country teams are headed downstate to Van Cortlandt Park in the BRONX, where on Saturday they'll compete in the MEET OF CHAMPIONS, hosted by Iona. Not much more to say than that. The women will run at 9:30 and the men at 10:15. The meet homepage is below:
Finally, Volleyball, who is neck and neck with women's soccer for best of the fall season, has one more weekend on the road before MAC play. UB will head to Bloomington, IN for the Hoosier Classic, hosted by the University of Indiana. In their three matches, the Bulls will face Indiana this evening at 7:00 PM, Butler tomorrow at 10:00 AM, and get a second shot at Western Illinois tomorrow at 5:00 PM. It looks like there will be live stats available for all matches, but no video.
Furthermore, we're finally going to make some use of the middle of the week, as volleyball will return home to Alumni for the first time in weeks on Tuesday to take on the Niagara Purple Eagles at 7:00
I probably won't have any real-time coverage of the Hoosier Classic - perhaps a writeup on Sunday - but I'll have live coverage from Alumni on Tuesday.
