The forceful frontcourt play displayed by Javon McCrea and Will Regan against Binghamton was exactly what Bobby Hurley envisioned when he became the University at Buffalo’s coach.He saw McCrea dodging double and triple teams and controlling the paint, while Regan worked his game inside and out.McCrea has lived up on his end, but Regan was having a rough go at it early alth…

BOISE, Idaho — In the end certain comparisons had nothing to do with anything. It didn’t matter that UB ranked fourth in the nation in turnover margin. Or that its roster included some of the most accomplished players in the history of the program. Or that it owned the only All-American on the field in linebacker Khalil Mack.The comparison that mattered, it turned out, was…

Charlon Kloof had less than five seconds to cover the final 85 feet to the basket after gaining possession with the fairytale ending waiting for him. St. Bonaventure was tied with Niagara. The Bonnies had one final possession with no timeouts remaining. You know the cliche story, about the kid by himself at the playground, racing the clock. Five, four, three … The winning …

Branden Oliver became the 13th running back in Mid-American Conference history to top 4,000 yards in career rushing during UB’s 49-24 loss to San Diego State Saturday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.Oliver ran 28 times for 114 yards, finishing his career with 4,049. He needed one rushing touchdown to match the school career record of 34 held by James Starks but scored inst…

With only Notre Dame left on the Canisius non-conference schedule before Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference play resumes in January, Saturday’s game against one-win Lamar was essentially the final tune-up before things start getting much more difficult. Golden Griffins coach Jim Baron was pleased with the end result – an 87-74 victory in which five players scored in double…

The University at Buffalo disregarded the unpleasant memory of surrendering a double-digit lead to St. Bonaventure in its last game.The more Niagara University chipped away at their lead on Saturday at the Gallagher Center, the more the Bulls made certain they wouldn’t re-live the St. Bonaventure nightmare. UB led by nine points with just over seven minutes remaining and s…

It wasn’t easy, but somehow the University at Buffalo men’s basketball team managed to lose a game Saturday afternoon which it led by seven points with 45 seconds to play in regulation.Manhattan took the Bulls to overtime with a last-minute rally and scored an 84-81 victory at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It was the seventh victory in a row for the Jaspers (8-3).In a game …

How Aztecs Won: Hard to believe San Diego State never won a game by more than 10 points all season long. The Aztecs bring plenty of speed at the skill positions, are solid in the trenches and beat UB soundly in every aspect of the game. UB came in ranked No. 4 in the country in turnover margin and turnovers were indeed key. SDSU scored three TDs after UB giveaways.Turning …

There were only five ticks left in another of what seems like a litany St. Bonaventure-Niagara thrillers. With the game knotted, overtime was a good bet, except the Bonnies are in possession of a blowtorch named Charlon Kloof who can cover the length of the floor in a hiccup.With no time outs remaining, Kloof inbounded the ball and passed it to Youssou Ndoye, who handed it…

BOISE, Idaho — Three games into their respective seasons, the idea of the University at Buffalo and San Diego State meeting in a bowl game fell under the heading of far-fetched dreams. The Aztecs were 0-3. The Bulls were 1-2 and needed five overtimes and two scoops of good fortune to dispatch lower-division Stony Brook. Neither was shaping up as a bowl invitee no matter ho…

Antoine Mason’s considerable scowl and recurrent eye rolls, natural reactions to frustration, are becoming infrequent as Niagara University’s chemistry continues to develop.The origin of Mason’s vicious glare was a 1-8 start to the season but back-to-back victories over Saint Peter’s and Davidson have Mason and the Purple Eagles smiling again coming into this evening’s gam…

1. Special K It’ll be interesting to see the approach the Aztecs take to minimizing the disruptive force that is UB LB Khalil Mack. Will fullback Chad Young be the one oft designated to help on Mack when he lines up on the edge? Will the Aztecs make more frequent use of their double tight end formation to account for UB’s tendency to have Mack switch up sides? The game wit…
