The University at Buffalo's lady Bulls may have lost 79-63 to the South Carolina Gamecocks, but they still made Western New York proud, many expressed on social media Saturday following the game. Between the Buffalo Bills making the playoffs for the first time since 1999, Western New York sending two teams to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1970, and University at Buffalo's women's basketball team advancing to the Sweet 16, 2018 has been a good year so far for Western New York sports.
300+ teams and we were one of the final 16 standing. Kept up with the defending national champions.
There is absolutely no reason to hang your heads, @UBwomenshoops.

@UBwomenshoops team deserves a HUGE amt of respect for advancing as far as you did in the tourney.

UB storybook season comes to an end 79-63. This team put @UBwomenshoops on the map nationally. Buffalo should be very proud of that squad

It doesn't ease the pain right now, but @UBwomenshoops did a school, community, city proud in their run to the #Sweet16. These 5 seniors will forever be remembered by #UBHornsUp fans and I believe they laid the groundwork for a powerhouse future. #UBDancing
