NCAA BASKETBALL: MAR 22 Div I Women’s Championship - First Round - Buffalo v Rutgers Photo by Williams Paul/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images

The tepid response to the question on format of Basketball BRuWPeG tilted towards a more traditional scoring system focused on the game of the week. So the weekly piece will mention all upcoming games, and highlight the one game that will be our GOTW.

Pick the score of that game and it will be scored a lot like football, with some adjustments for margins etc...

This Weeks Games

Men: The Men went 2-1 in Charlotte with a couple of white knuckle last second wins. The team is not playing like a MAC champ just yet, but the bones are there and they are learning to claw back in tight games.

It’s going to be a fun season and if the chemistry happens UB can beat anyone in the MAC.

This week the Men will host William and Mary.

The Tribe opened up the season 4-0 before dropping a close game to Oklahoma and getting pounded by Stanford.

WIlliam and Mary were picked to finish 7th in the Colonial Athletic Association just behind Towson. They are led by preseason CAA first team forward Nathan Knight. At 6-10 245 pounds he is exactly the kind of player that has given UB trouble so far this season.

No word on the status of Brock Bertram, but the Bulls could really use his presence inside if he is healed up.

Women: The Bulls went 0-2 out west. Stanford played like a top 10 team against Buffalo and against San Jose State a disastrous third quarter doomed the team. Both are good teams and there is no shame in dropping a west coast swing against them but it really feels like a lost opportunity to steal a win from the Spartans.

This week UB has two games at the “Saint Josephs Tournament”

They take on Drexel in our GAME OF THE WEEK

The Dragons are picked to finish second in the Colonial Athletic Association and aside from Stanford are probably the best team UB has played to day.

Preseason first team forward Bailey Greenberg will try to lock things up down low and force the Bulls to beat Drexel from distance.

The second game of the tournament sees Buffalo play against American.

The Eagles opened up their season against MAC East favorite Ohio, so this could be a good gauge for Buffalo.
