Buffalo falls to Big Four rival Canisius

The baseball team has seen its fair share of ups and downs so far this season, and the pattern continued in its two most recent contests - both of which saw the team fall in dramatic fashion. On Wednesday, the Bulls (18-16, 8-4 Mid-American Conference) traveled 15 minutes down Main Street to take on their cross-town rivals, the Canisius Golden Griffins (24-10, 4-5 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) in back-to-back seven-inning games.

Bulls continue outdoor season success

The track and field teams' outdoor season is still young, but both teams already have reason to be optimistic looking toward next month's Mid-American Conference Championships. On Saturday, the Bulls traveled south to Pennsylvania to compete in the Bucknell Bison Outdoor Classic.


FEATURES

"H to the izz-O, V to the izz-Ace"

It was a snowy night in January when Vusa Hove first set foot in the United States. Snow is not a common sight in Sub-Saharan Africa. "The first day I arrived was the first time in my life that I'd ever seen snow," Hove said.

Bulls snap streak

Just a week ago, the women's tennis team was one of two undefeated squads in the country. Entering Saturday, an undefeated season had spun into to a three-game losing streak and the team looked to regain its early-season form. The Bulls (11-3, 2-3 Mid-American Conference) hosted Western Michigan (11-10, 4-1 MAC) on Friday and Bowling Green (14-3, 3-2 MAC) on Saturday.

Early spring success

After an exciting indoor season in which many school records and personal bests were shattered, the track and field team has continued to find success early in the outdoor season. On Friday, Buffalo traveled west to participate in the Toledo Collegiate Challenge in Toledo, Ohio.

Running of the Bulls

The men's and women's track and field teams had some very lofty expectations coming into the weekend's Mid-American Conference Indoor Championships. The Bulls traveled to Ypsilanti, Mich., for the two-day competition and found an abundance of individual successes. Three Bulls were crowned MAC champions over the weekend and six others secured finishes inside top three in their respective events. Junior thrower Jonathan Jones and senior thrower Shante' White were named the men's and women's athletes, respectively, of the meet in recognition of their championship winning performances. Jones brought home a familiar title for the Bulls on Friday, as he broke former Buffalo thrower Rob Golabek's school record in the shot-put event.


OPINION

"Later, Lindy"

A 53-year-old man stood in front of the team he coached for 5,693 days. On Wednesday afternoon, exhausted and defeated, he walked out of the silver, blue and gold locker room door for the last time. While browsing through my twitter feed, I read 140 characters that many Buffalo Sabres fans have been eagerly waiting for.

Shooting pains

After shooting an efficient 46.6 percent from the field and 45.8 percent from behind the arc in Thursday's win over Miami, the women's basketball team traveled northeast to take on Akron (14-7, 5-3 Mid-American Conference). The Bulls (7-14, 5-3 MAC) came into the game tied for first place in the MAC East but saw their shooting numbers fall drastically in the second game of their Ohio road trip, as they suffered a 75-57 defeat at the hands of the Zips. The story of the game was the difference in shot making, as the Bulls could only cash in on 32.8 percent of their field goal attempts and only four of their 17 attempts from three-point range. "We were taking the shots but unfortunately they weren't finding the hole," said head coach Felisha Legette-Jack.

Out of reach

The women's basketball team rallied from being down 14 points at halftime to trim its deficit to two points, but despite the Bulls', best efforts they had their three-game win streak at Alumni Arena come to an end.
