Teague the Fighter

When the softball team lost 6-2 against Canisius last Tuesday, Bulls fans probably thought it was another missed opportunity for the team. For some, however, the game holds a much deeper meaning. Tuesday's contest was part of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association's Strike Out Cancer event, a nationwide initiative created to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer. It is a struggle that head coach Jennifer Teague knows all too well.

Question & Answer with Warde Manuel

The Spectrum: Can you speak about John B. Simpson leaving? Are you concerned at all about a drop off in the support you've had from his administration for athletics? Warde Manuel: No I'm not.


Bulls Swept By MAC Leaders

The baseball team took on the Mid-American Conference leader over the weekend and tried to pull off a major upset, but couldn't defeat the odds. The Bulls (7-28, 0-14 MAC) were outscored 27-8 en route to a sweep, extending their losing streak to 17 games, keeping them winless in conference play. Despite their poor performance throughout the weekend, the Bulls put together a strong outing in game one against Kent State (26-12, 12-3 MAC). Buffalo jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the second inning thanks to junior outfielder Jordan Camp's two-run home run to left field that plated sophomore infielder River McWilliams.

Bad Conditions Can't Slow the Row

Bulls' Early Struggles Lead to Sweep

The baseball team has limped through the 2011 season. A slow start to conference play has doomed the team to the basement of the Mid-American Conference standings.

Buffalo dropped both games, 7-4 and 8-3. The Bulls' extended their losing streak to 14 games. Buffalo fell behind 4-0 in game one, and it didn't respond until the third inning.
