NCAA Womens Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round- Buffalo vs Rutgers David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

While the Buffalo Mens team was focused on not letting a lower seed knock them out the Womens team were playing in Storrs as 10 seed taking on Rutgers, a seven.

Despite being an underdog the women were going neck and neck with the Scarlet Knights until early in the second half. A series of sloppy plays let Rutgers turn a one point lead into a nine point lead and they hoped to run away from the Bulls.

But Cierra Dillard, Hannah Hall, and Courtney WIlkins keyed up a Buffalo Run. From there, through most of the 4th, the two teams battled back and fourth but the UB defense turned into brick wall at the 4:55 mark, only allowing one Rugters basket the rest of the game.

With the win the Women will take on the victor in the evening game between UConn and Towson.
