Broncos Can't Buck With the Bulls

Fans that showed up on Tuesday afternoon at Alumni Arena were treated to the women basketball team's best defensive performance of the season. Shooting woes were the story of the game and Western Michigan (6-17, 2-8 Mid-American Conference) shot 22 percent from the field, including 0-for-15 from 3-point territory.

Loser Envy

I look at the current Buffalo Bills fanbase and wish I could be a part of what's coming. If you don't understand what that means, it's actually a simple concept.

Bulls Fall Short in MAC Opener

In its last meet, the wrestling team rested its top athletes in preparation for conference play. That decision did not help the team as much as the coaches had hoped. The Bulls (7-6, 0-1 Mid-American Conference) hoped to open up conference play on the right foot against the Ohio Bobcats (7-3, 2-0 MAC) over the weekend.

Forecast: Filzen Makes It Rain

The Xavier Silas show was supposed to take center stage at Alumni Arena on Saturday afternoon, but senior guard Zach Filzen stepped in and stole the NBA prospect's spotlight. Buffalo (13-6, 5-2 Mid-American Conference) extended its season-best win streak to five games in a 63-52 victory over Northern Illinois (7-12, 3-4 MAC). Filzen electrified the 2,347 fans in attendance throughout the game with his 3-point shooting.

What's 50 Grand Among Friends?

The men's ice hockey club team does not usually get the attention that it deserves on campus; however, the $50,000 check that it just received suggests that at least one person knows that the club exists. That person is Hamilton, On.

The Buffalo Braves are coming back to Buffalo. No, not really. But wouldn't it be nice? You may be unfamiliar with the sport of basketball, considering you live in the land of puck and pigskin.

Bulls Go Bird Hunting

Saturday wasn't a good day to visit Alumni Arena if you were wearing anything other than blue and white. Just days after senior forwards Kourtney Brown and Jessica Fortman made history in a huge win over Central Michigan (12-7, 4-3 Mid-American Conference), the Bulls (11-10, 4-4 MAC) trampled the Ball State Cardinals (9-12, 4-4 MAC) by a score of 77-61. The Cardinals seemed to be overwhelmed in the opening minutes, when Brown scored nine of Buffalo's first 11 points to put the Bulls ahead.

Records Shattered in Bulls' Win

The athletic department's budget for paper is going to skyrocket in the coming days, because a few members of the women's basketball team have rewritten the record books. A commanding performance by senior forward Kourtney Brown helped the Bulls (10-10, 3-4 Mid-American Conference) outlast Central Michigan (12-7, 4-3 MAC), 92-89, on the road at McGuirk Arena. Brown became Buffalo's all-time leading scorer midway through the first half on a layup that tied the game.

Programmed for Success

As any gamer will tell you, the only thing that matters is owning the high score. Senior forward Kourtney Brown has brought that mentality to Alumni Arena and the women's basketball team. Brown is the dominating force that has led the Bulls with a season that has been nothing short of impressive.

Bulls Burn Broncos To Extend Win Streak

On Tuesday night, Western Michigan found out firsthand what Ohio learned over the weekend; the men's basketball team is a different squad in the second half. The Bulls (12-6, 4-2 Mid-American Conference) went into Kalamazoo, Mi.

Bulls Best Get Rest

The end of non-conference play is usually a time for preparation, but the wrestling team just hoped to avoid injury before kicking things off in the Mid-American Conference. After a busy month, the Bulls (7-5) took a bit of a breather this past weekend at the New York State Intercollegiate Championships in Binghamton.
