In the summer, Troy Keller is busting his back pouring concrete. By the fall, he’s sitting comfortably in a tree stand deer hunting. But in the winter, it’s all wrestling all the time –  and he’s made quite a name for himself doing it. When the University at Buffalo-bound Keller walks off the mat for the final time wearing a Thunderwolves singlet, he’ll likely go down a…

Air Force had to postpone last weekend’s hockey game against Sacred Heart due to the government shutdown, but this week’s series at Niagara is a go after the shutdown was ended.

In the latest Bracketology post from ESPN's Joe Lunardi, he projected the University at Buffalo (15-5, 7-0 MAC) as a 12-seed in the …

If you haven't seen Jermaine Crumpton in a year, you'd barely recognize him. Canisius men's basketball's star forward trimmed down by 30 pounds in the offseason, a stark change in such a short time span. With the muscle needed to play big man minutes at the Division I level, it's about as much as he could lose. "A lot of people around me are asking me, 'How did I do …

ALLEGANY – 2018 did not start the way St. Bonaventure’s men’s basketball team envisioned it, but they’re hoping Wednesday’s 70-67 win over Saint Joseph’s can get them back on track and end a slide that threatened to undo what they accomplished in the first half of the season. The Bonnies ran the table in December after star guard Jaylen Adams returned from an ankle inju…

Niagara men's basketball's calling card is its offense, and for good reason. The Purple Eagles are ranked first in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in scoring, averaging 83.1 points per game. Matt Scott and Kahlil Dukes get the spotlight, as both are averaging over 20 points a game and in the top three in the league in scoring. The offense is certainly king, bu…

Saint Joe’s was called for an offensive foul on its next possession, and Courtney Stockard hit a late free throw…
