Bulls best Bonnies at Alumni Arena for first time
Evans and Skeete lead Bulls to first victory over Big Four rival in 17 years
Before Saturday afternoon, the men’s basketball team’s last victory over St. Bonaventure was in 1996. The Bulls had only beaten the Bonnies twice and had never won against them at Alumni Arena.

The new man in charge
Alum Stutzman looks to make mark on UB’s wrestling team as new coach
John Stutzman had several eye-opening experiences while coaching around the world. The excitement and fast-paced lifestyle don’t faze him; in fact, it suits him perfectly. His high motor and intense personality led him to become a dominant 150-pound wrestler for the Bulls from 1995-98. Now – after guiding Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania to a 97-56-1 record over the past eight years – Stutzman returns to his alma mater using that same drive.
