CALGARY, Alb. — Last season, the Buffalo Bulls turned some heads with their run through the MAC Tournament and into the field of 68 in the NCAA Tournament.
While it’s a new season, the Bulls are turning heads once again as March is fast approaching.
Coming into the year, it looked as though the Ohio Bobcats were the clear favourite in the MAC. When forward Antonio Campbell went down with a season-ending injury last month, the conference race became wide open.
The Akron Zips had emerged as a top contender for the title, and despite their first conference loss this past week, the Zips are three games ahead of anyone else in the MAC.
Several teams are on the rise ,and one of those teams is Buffalo. The Bulls lost to the Zips by a single point last week, but they came back in a big way this past week.
The play of senior Blake Hamilton was a big factor in the Bulls’ two victories. Hamilton put the team on his back and put together back-to-back 20+ point performances to help get Buffalo back to .500 in conference play.
For his efforts over the past week, a seven-day stretch that saw the Bulls knock off a tough opponent at home, then score a 27-point win on the road over the weekend, senior forward Blake Hamilton has been named the College Court Report Player of the Week for the week of January 30 – February 5, 2017!
