  1. Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know that I've created a new website called UBcourtside.com . Before and after each game, I'll be posting detailed game previews and recaps, among other things. Also, if you're interested, follow @ubcourtside on twitter! I'm going to do some ticket giveaways for women's and men's games, give out interesting stats about the team I come across, and give updates as I scout our upcoming opponents. I just joined this forum and I plan to be very active on here as well! I'm not affiliated with the university at all, just a season ticket holder and a rabid college

  2. Folks, I have gotten to know this young man over the last 2 years as my wife and I have mentored him during his 2 years in Juco. He is a much better person today than hew was 2 years ago. He has grown up a lot and is ready to be a leader. You will get a ferocious competitor and one who will absolutely make everyone around him better. He is a pass first guard but make no mistake, when Chipola needed him to score he could get to the basket at will. Also understand that he was playing in the best Juco conference in America against really good talent. You guys are gonna love Malik. Can

  3. I’m sorry but how the hell was ButlerDad on an advisory committee for this university? He seems to only be here to bash any suggestion that UB, the largest and most comprehensive state university in arguably the most powerful state in the country, could possibly do better than playing in a conference with a bunch of 2nd tier Ohio schools and directional Michigan’s. I encourage everyone to always aim higher and ignore outside opinions like this. It may be far fetched and down the road but AAC is certainly not impossible by any stretch of the imagination.

  4. Another small error, they accidentally said we would finish in 2nd and then 3rd. Can’t believe they misspelled 1st two separate times.

  5. Thank you Nate. You didn’t know it then nor did we at the time, but if it wasn’t for you taking your talents to Toledo, UB basketball would not be what it has become. CJ Massinburg, Nate Oats and all UB players and fans appreciate your kind consideration.

  8. Good things were happening with UB Basketball. Cierra Dillard named Honorable Mention All-American C.J. Massinburg also named Honorable Mention All-American Nick Perkins Selected to play in NABC All-Star game I realize these are all seniors that won't be here to help the teams next year, but every honor garnered by our players, makes UB more visable to those outside of our little community, and maybe even to prospective coaches.

  9. Spoke with Segu. He is excited about the new coach and seems to be in good spirits. He has enough confidence that he'll work with any coach. For now, we save one of UB's top recruits ever.

  10. Let’s celebrate and give thanks for two incredible teams and coaches which will go down in the record books of UB athletic history. Women after losing tons of talent and leadership win the MAC tournament over their nemesis and tremendous foe CMU to get to championship where they beat an excellent Ohio team. They overcame adversity with the suspension of Summer. They displayed grit against Rutgers and then fought UCONN for 40 minutes. As FLJ said for UCONN to get another NCAA title they had to go through BUFFALO! And she was not kidding. What a valiant effort! They put Buffalo women’s bas

  12. I don’t post often, but this is a milestone worth acknowledging. With all that is happening in the world, and locally in Buffalo in the midst of Bills hysteria, it’s easy for an accomplishment like this to go relatively unnoticed. A top 25 ranking of any kind was almost unimaginable as recently as a few years ago, to say nothing of when we dropped football 50 years ago. Hopefully, we can continue to raise the bar in all sports and maintain a level representative of UB's standing as a university. That will be a major challenge, of course, but no more so than the challenges faced in getting

  13. So I am a graduate of the University of Florida. some of you may recall the point guard for the 06/07 National Championship teams named Taurean Green. Malik's game is very similar. He is always in control but if defenders don' respect him then he will score again and again. he has a fantastic mid range jumper. I am telling you in preseason practice this past year before he hurt his knee (minor injury that has completely healed) he had taken his offensive game to another level. In fact in a preseason tournament in Dallas he was clearly one of the best payers there. It is a shame he lost

  15. UB has reached at least 20 wins for the 5th time in 6 years. Hopefully we can appreciate how far we’ve come over the past decade. To get here after losing 5 seniors and the head coach is no small feat. Coming out of Cleveland with the bid would be icing on the cake but it’s been a fun season even with the speed bumps. Horns up 🤟🏽

  18. People point out positives and negatives throughout the ebbs and flows of games (and seasons). It's a forum, people are going to disagree... and that's fine. There's no reason for it to always turn into a "who is the right kind of fan" discussion here...

  19. I'll throw in some commentary here. I'm not a basketball Xs and Os guy and won't pretend to be. Whether Whitesell is "the future", I don't know. I certainly don't think we had any idea of the successes of either Hurley or Oats halfway through their first seasons at UB. For the rest of this post, I'm going to use PORPAGATU! as my metric comparing players - not because it's perfect but because it Torvik's calculations are transparent and the info can be compared year-over-year. It is clear to me through 14 games that all 4 of UB's returning "core" (Graves, Jordan, Williams, Segu) have t

  20. I'm not sure that I completely agree with that statement, as it sounds quite dismissive of Nate's basketball mind. Nate & Jim worked extremely well as a unit, along with Jamie & Bryan. They each had their roles and they were excellent together within them. Yes, Jim has superb basketball brains, but Nate does as well. His biggest obstacle at a school like Alabama (or any other "big" school) is going to get the players to buy in to his unselfish system and play for each other, much as UB has done over the past several years. Many of these high profile players have egos, talkers in their

  22. Brock worked a lot on his shooting and actually can hit 3s pretty consistently now as well. Not sure if he’ll have the green light to shoot them like Perkins did but it’s still encouraging. Not even just Brock though. Segu is showing more confidence and actually showing off his shiftiness (hesi move he’s known for) and is making acrobatic contested layups. Davonta looks more explosive and his shooting has improved remarkably. Graves is very quiet personality-wise (think Kawhi Leonard) like usual, but looks ready to lead and his shot looks as spot on as I’ve ever seen it.

  29. After being at the game and coming home to read what was written, you'd think we lost by 20. Some of you have such little faith in the players, coaches and team as a whole. Some of you critique the hell out of the coaching decisions and condemn the players relentlessly so frequently. From being at the game, I saw a lot of effort from every player at all times. Were there defensive breakdowns over 40 minutes? Absolutely. Were there bad shots taken? Yes, but fewer than some of the earlier games this season. Did UB take care of the ball? Most definitely. Did UB turn the other team over often, tra

  30. I think any expectations that this team would be as good as last years was wishful thinking at best, so I don't think it's reasonable or useful to compare production loss from last years' team to this years team. We don't need to be last years team beating MAC opponents 15 points a night to win the MAC. The talent level on this roster is good enough to be the best in the MAC - I mean look around the league: would you really want to swap out our roster for any other roster? As for CJ and Perk being ready immediately, as freshmen when UB won the MAC with Nate Oats for the first time Perk co

  32. I've heard this type of talk so much, sorry to reply to you about it...but. Is all we care about making the NCAA tournament now? Because what we're going to win the National Championship or something?? Can we lose every game, win the MAC tourny and it's all good? I'm so tired of this warped attitude that success is only based on how far we get postseason. I sure as hell hope that attitude hasn't infected the team and they think these games don't matter. I don't think it has, but if so why even watch these games then? See you in Cleveland eh? Stringing together high quality seasons, showin

  33. Anyone see Texas Tech beat the #1 ranked team Louisville tonight? So you know what that means...If DePaul beat Texas Tech and Buffalo beat DePaul, then Buffalo is better than Texas Tech which beat the #1 team in the nation. Basically UB has a case to be the #1 team in the nation.

If the UB men’s basketball team wins the MAC tournament again next year, I will get Jim Whitesell’s face tattoo’d on my chest to constantly remind me that I was wrong about this hire I fully believe in his coaching ability, I just have my doubts that we will be able to recruit as aggressively as we did with Hodgson

  42. I chatted with Tripathi briefly on the court after the women won in Cleveland and this is basically the gist of what I said. I thanked him for supporting athletics and mentioned how it's so important that the public perception of the University be bolstered by successful big time athletics to more closely match the demonstrated academic success of the University. Basically, we're the #28 public institution in the nation, ahead of places like Minnesota, but no one know us. The athletics success has helped so much in swaying public perception across the country of the university and that will
