St. Bonaventure will honor its three seniors today before its final men's basketball regular season game against Massachusetts today at 4 p.m. in the Reilly Center.

Player in their final home game will be Denzel Gregg, David Andoh and Caleb McGuire. Gregg has played in 111 career games, 76 of them Bona wins. A four-year veteran who improved his play through his career, Gregg had eight double-doubles this season.

St. Bonaventure (18-11, 10-7 A-10) is in sole possession of fifth place in the Atlantic 10 Conference, one game ahead of George Washington and George Mason. The Bonnies can clinch fifth place in the conference with a win.

UMass (14-16, 3-14) lost at home to Richmond, 75-64 after a 74-61 win over La Salle last Sunday.

Bona guards Jaylen Adams and Matt Mobley have combined to average 40.2 points per game. Between them they have 29 games of 20 points or more. Adams ranks 20th in the nation and second in the A-10 in scoring (20.9). Mobley is fourth in the conference at 19.5 ppg.
UMass holds a 41-26 series lead but the Bonnies have won seven of the last nine meetings include an 85-83 win on Senior Day last season on a last-second layup by Marcus Posley. Bona won the previous meeting this season, 89-77, on Dec. 30, 2016.

The University at Buffalo women's team (20-8, 10-7 Mid-American Conference) will conclude its regular season at Kent State (Radio 1520, 1 p.m.) The Bulls will be trying to secure a No. 6 or No. 7 in the MAC Tournament.  UB will host a first-round game in the conference tournament at Alumni Arena on Monday at 5:30 p.m. With a win and an Ohio U. loss, the Bulls will be the No. 6 seed and host No. 11 Akron. With a loss or an Ohio win, UB will be No. 7 and face the loser of Saturday's Miami versus Bowling Green game.

UB routed Akron, 81-55, on the road on Wednesday night.

UB guard Stephanie Reid ranks fifth in the NCAA in assists per game at 7.3. Senior JoAnna Smith of the Bulls tied her career high with 31 points in the win over Akron.
