The men's basketball team is coming off the best season in program history. It recorded more wins than any Buffalo team in history with 27, and secured the school’s first NCAA Tournament game victory when they beat the Arizona Wildcats 89-68. The Bulls enter the offseason preparing to exceed this past year’s success and claim a fourth Mid-American Conference title in five years.
The Bulls have a date with the No. 4 seed Arizona Wildcats and ESPN’s No. 3 ranked prospect in the upcoming NBA draft, Deandre Ayton. The Bulls will have their hands full with the Wildcats, who are loaded with future NBA players.
