The UB Bulls men’s team definitely ended the season on a high note as they have reached the 20-win mark again for the third consecutive season. Jayvon Graves 25 point night led the Bulls to an 88-84 over Bowling r on Friday night. The men’s team will now be waiting on the MAC Conference Tournament as the winner will get an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The UB Bulls women’s team will be looking forward to the MAC Conference Tournament coming up. The women’s team could be riding a six-game winning streak going into the tournament. Summer Hemphill will look to lead the Bulls back to the NCAA Tournament. Will the Lady Bulls win the MAC Tournament? March Madness is on the way.
Buffalo Bills Talk
This week has been an interesting week as Jordan Poyer wife Rachel Bush spoke about publicly on restructuring her husband contract with the Buffalo Bills saying “Pay him what he deserves or he will go somewhere else it’s football not rocket science.” Interesting enough the Bills Mafia believes that he deserves a new contract and so do I but I think it’s being handled wrong. It’s a good thing that the Buffalo Bills on Monday signed 32 year old former All Pro Josh Norman to a one-year six million dollar contract in which incentives could lead to an eight million dollar contract in retrospect. This signing in my opinion will lead to two things. The first thing is that you can bet your bottom dollar Tre White will be getting signed to an extension by the Buffalo Bills. Secondly, Jordan Poyer most likely will get the extension he is looking for seeing that safety help will be very important with the acquiring of Josh Norman. Will Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier be able to bring on the resurgence of Josh Norman who has declined in the last couple of years.
Buffalo Sabres Talk
The Buffalo Sabres are currently on the six-game losing streak as talks of the process are being made again by head coach Ralph Krueger. The Buffalo Sabres honestly need to be looking to get more veteran talent on this team. Hockeytown USA understands that the Sabres are going younger with the roster but more acquisitions like Wayne Simmonds will help the Sabres in the long run as they lack physicality, determination, and discipline mentally. When will the drought end for the Buffalo Sabres?
