I think secretly we are all hoping a team from the Buffalo area can match up with a pac 12 team.

I don't think it's that secret

Nope, between years of dealing with their classless, insufferable fans and their coach trolling the Bills in back to back press conferences I just can’t root for them. I wish I could but it’s not happening.

Adams is really struggling for them. Just imagine if he was hitting shots he usually does...

Yeah,  this game is really messy. Bonnies are killing it with the defense,  but they're also lucky that UCLA is shooting like crap.

Stockert is just nasty this game... He is saying, "we are NOT losing this game. "

UCLA shooting like crap partly due to tough Bona defense

Good win for the Bonnies. it’s a shame they even had to play in the play-in game but I’m glad they took care of business. It would be great if we could start beating them and build a WNY rivalry up against a quality A10 program.

Yes sometimes it is hard to route for St. Bona but they have had the more storied program over many many years. Congrats to them for a gritty game. More than one of the announcers said during and after the game they won because of grit, effort, determination and guts. Sometimes that's what it takes to beat a more talented team. They beat a bigger team in effort on the boards, defense with many steals and with sub par games from both Adams and Mobley. They definitely have quickness and can rebound even though they are smaller. UB can do the same against Arizona if they fight for the full 40 minutes. Go Bulls!!!!

Impressive win by the Bonnies. They did one helluva job on the boards rarely giving up second shots and getting a fair number of offensive boards. They also did a fantastic job defensively closing down driving lanes especially in the heart of the lane. We will need to follow their example and being gritty, tough, hard nosed an d relentless.
