Home Sweet Home

The men's basketball team has had no problem scoring in its own gym so far this season. The Bulls (2-1) came out firing in the first half and held off a late rally to pick up their second win at home this season with an 87-76 victory over the Towson Tigers (1-2) on Saturday night. Junior guard Zach Filzen led a balanced offensive attack, which resulted in five players reaching double figures.

Reaching New Heights

Sometimes a team has to experience the pain of failure before it can reach its full potential. In some regards, this season was a success for the Bulls (18-16, 5-11 Mid-American Conference) even though they fell to Ohio (18-11, 10-6 MAC), 3-0, in the quarterfinals of the MAC tournament. Bulls head coach Todd Kress thinks that despite exiting the tournament in the quarters for the second straight season, it could end up being a stepping stone for the team. "I have to give the credit to this team for the year we had," Kress said.

One And Done In MAC Tournament

The Bulls (7-10-1, 4-2-0 Mid American Conference) were knocked out of the MAC tournament by the eventual champion, the Akron Zips (18-1-1). The 3-1 loss was a crushing one that ended the 2010 season.
