1  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: How will the team respond this week against WMU then Kant State? on: January 28, 2015, 06:16:33 AM
I don't know if UB has ever had a better step-back jump shooter than Moss. I'd wager he's one of the best in the NCAA. It's really not a shot that many college players develop; it seems like it's mostly developed at the professional level (except for 5* blue chip prospects who have pretty much every shot type in their arsenal). I love that he's got that shot available to him since WMU really sold out at times to keep him out of the paint.

I thought Bearden played a great game and I was surprised to see his 1/8 stat line shooting. His defense has really come along. Skeete played great defense as well.

Ford has earned his place in the starting lineup at the 4, but I really like what he brings as our 6th man. I think Hurley was just looking for a bit of a different look against WMU and wouldn't be surprised to see Regan start again on Friday. He's a spark on both offense and defense. I've heard about what a hard worker he is, so to see it really paying off makes me happy.

Hurley was hilarious to watch tonight. There was one moment in the second half where the referees finally called the WMU guard on a push off of a Buffalo defender, and Hurley raised his arms in sarcastic shock and walked all the way to the other end of the bench as if refusing to believe they actually called one. He also motioned for the crowd to get into the game several times and applaud after a few big UB runs towards the end. He still hasn't been called for a technical this year, and while he's still prone to getting into referee's faces, I think he controls himself a lot better and uses his emotions more appropriately. I think he's going to be a big time coach in the NCAA and if he has his ambitions set for a high major coaching job, I don't think he'll have to wait very long.

Good win. I thought we were the much better team tonight, and if we hit our standard amount of our threes it wouldn't have been very close. Also nice to see Torian Graham on the bench. He must have enrolled this semester.

Unacceptable loss. No energy today. Looks like a middling MAC team right now.
4  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Big week! on: January 21, 2015, 08:43:07 PM
Definitely a team I wouldn't like to see in the tournament.
5  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Big week! on: January 21, 2015, 08:24:17 PM
It's crazy to me how a team so reliant on hot scoring as CMU does just never seems to have a cold day shooting.
6  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: Big week! on: January 21, 2015, 08:15:10 PM
Not looking great right now. Down 6 and CMU can't miss from 3.
7  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: western michigan on: January 10, 2015, 02:57:39 PM
Down 15 with 4:15 left. this one is over. Poor performance, but that's conference play for you.
8  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: western michigan on: January 10, 2015, 02:53:21 PM
Down 10 with under 7 to play. So-so defense and very poor shooting. Not looking promising.

And Skeete seems to be hurt again.

Those one month deals would be worth it, if a quality audio-video production were purchased. Sadly, the results are garbage for the most part IMO. I'll listen to the game on the radio. Fans from outside WNY or Kalamazoo will have to shell out the $9 for an inferior product.
Does the stream quality suck or is it the broadcasting team?

It's a video board stream, but one of the better video board streams I've come across in away games.

Although it's not currently working for me.

1 assist to 9 turnovers and Moss and Evans are the only ones doing anything. Down 10.
11  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: western michigan on: January 10, 2015, 01:44:46 PM
UB down by 2, Evans gets tripped on a fast break on his way to the bucket, no call.

These refs are making some strange decisions on both ends.
12  UB Sports / Buffalo Bulls Basketball / Re: western michigan on: January 10, 2015, 01:11:33 PM
Western hasn't missed a shot yet. Western 14 Buffalo 4.

Taking a lot of ill-advised shots. Can't hit a thing from the field right now.

  Similarly no one at Canisius had anything to do with Duke playing them.  It was done on Coach Krzyzewski scheduling a "home" game for Christian Laetner.

This point sticks out as I remember growing up in Elmira, watching Carolina play at Cornell, because Dean Smith wanted to schedule a "home" game for then starting point guard King Rice,  a Binghamton native.

Same way we got BYU and Jimmer Fridette to play in Alumni Arena.

"Meanwhile, Hurley said freshman shooting guard Mory Diane, a Detroit product, is academically ineligible for the second semester. Diane had played briefly in four games. That leaves Hurley with nine players, plus walk-on guard Christian Pino. Hurley has been sticking with an eight-man rotation all season.
Hurley said Diane is going to get his academics in order, “and he’ll be back with us."

At the bottom of today's BuffaloNews article about the Bulls victory yesterday. As I read this, does this mean there is a chance he could rejoin the Bulls later in the season? Second semester same as Spring semester?

I think all that means is he's still part of the team but won't be able to play for the rest of the year. I read that as "we expect to have him back next season."

For the most part, Buffalo played a nice game today.  Cornell did a nice job keepiing it close for the first half.  #13 can shoot and #32 for them can get up in the air very quickly.  He had some monster put backs.  Loved it when Evans just started lighting it up with threes. 
Really liked the way Hurley handled a problem that he saw with Bearden.  After yelling, "Lamonte", the length of the court, BH subbed for him immediately.  Chewed on him a bit and put him back in the game after a brief time.  Bearden seemed to respond and I believe he was the first Buffalo Bull to reach double figures.  The next time out, BH made it a point to go over and give Bearden a smack on the arse and tell him nice job.  I'm liking what I'm seeing.

I noticed that as well. It seemed last year Hurley wasn't really interacting with the players nearly as much in game. He spent the majority of his time working the officials. Even on timeouts it seemed like often he'd be standing outside of the team huddle while Oats and Watkins/Harrield would be talking to the players. This year, he's right in the mix coaching up the players. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't believe he's been T'ed up this year.

I may be remembering last year unfavorably for Hurley, but that was just my perception at the time.
