Bobcats Shell-Shocked by Bulls Comeback

If you turned off your TV at halftime on Saturday afternoon when the men's basketball team trailed by 18 points, you missed your chance to witness history. People should be forgiven, however, for turning the channel because the Bulls' (11-6, 3-2 Mid-American Conference) performance in the first half left a lot to be desired.

Bulls Aim for Top During Winter Break

Over winter break, the wrestling team didn't get much time off. The team was competing all over the country while most students were home regrouping from the fall semester. No one ever said being a student-athlete was easy, but the Bulls (7-5) stepped up to the challenge, going up against some of the nation's toughest teams. Junior Desi Green earned a solid 7-1 record in the 149-pound weight class over the break, increasing his career total to 92 wins.

Glens Falls Kid Made It Rain at Alumni

You're the Problem

Alumni Arena's maximum capacity is currently 6,100 seats. The average attendance this season for men's basketball games is currently 1,499 people per game. One word comes to mind when seeing that number ? embarrassing. Not every city is lucky enough to have a Division 1-A basketball team that is competitive almost every year and plays in such an accessible location.

Mulkey Steals Show

The men's basketball team played its third Big Four rivalry game of the season on Wednesday night, and its opponent came into Alumni Arena with hopes of stealing a win from the Bulls. Too bad for the Niagara Purple Eagles (2-7, 0-2 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) that senior point guard Byron Mulkey ? the nation's steals leader ? beat them to it. For their third straight home game, the Bulls (5-3) scored more than 80 points and thus remain unbeaten at home after an 82-64 victory over Niagara.
