As we watched the University at Buffalo s win the MAC title over the weekend against Tolendo, it granted the Bull its third appearance ever to the NCAA tournament.

St. Bonaventure, although it lost over the weekend, had a chance to make it into the tournament and snuck in! Although Bonnies got robbed last year, they'll play in the first four this year which means WNY will have 2 teams in some March Madness action!
