Brandon Mumaw came to Buffalo looking to complete a Master's in Higher Education Administration. Because he had a year of NCAA eligibility left after three seasons and a redshirt playing for the Saint Leo University Lions he got to spend a year playing Ball for the Bulls.
After limited action in 2012/2013, and a redshirt in 2014 the South Paw ramped it up in 2015. Appearing in 16 games with two starts on the season. On the year, he was 5-0 with two saves with a 4.97 ERA.
Before Saint Leo Mumaw played high school ball He attended Wesley Chapel High School in Florida. He was an All-Sunshine Athletic Conference Baseball in 2010 and 2011. He was also selected to Florida Athletic Coaches Association Baseball All-Star Game in 2011.
So far this season Mumaw has put in 68.1 innings, just over ten innings shy of the 78.2 innings which put Anthony Magovney and Josh Edwards in a 9th place tie in the UB record books. He may be due for a start against Niagara and if he picks up some long relief versus Bowling Green the one year stint in Buffalo could put him in the Books.
In his lone season at Buffalo Mumaw was a week-night pitcher for the Bulls. Starting in 6 non-conference games. On the year, he was 4-6 but managed a 2-0 record in his starts versus UB's cross-town rival, The Canisius Golden Griffs. Overall against the Big Four he is 3-3 with a 3.98 ERA and 31K's against just 11 walks.
He has been just what UB needed for their midweek slate of games this season and it's a shame the Bulls won't have another year out of Mumaw.
