UB wins fifth straight in OT on winner by Smiley

  • Posted on February 20, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Sean Smiley drained a baseline jumper as time expired to lift the University at Buffalo men’s basketball team to a 77-75 overtime win over Saint Peter’s at the Yanitelli Center in an ESPNU Bracket Buster matchup on Saturday afternoon. It was the Bulls’ fifth straight win.

It was a wild back-and-forth affair. The Bulls trailed by as many as 11 points in the first half before cutting the Saint Peter’s lead to five at halftime. After falling behind 35-28 to open the second half, the Bulls mounted a 10-0 scoring run, capped by a Sean Smiley jumper to take a 38-35 lead.

Bills Roster Review: Defensive Ends

  • Posted on February 20, 2010 at 5:06 pm

Chris Kelsay Buffalo Sports DailySuper Bowl XLIV is in the books, and while the city of New Orleans takes a few more weeks to party like they’ve never partied before - you deserve it, folks - the rest of the NFL can now turn its full attention toward building toward the goal that the Saints achieved last night.

Back here in Buffalo Bills country, we’re still reeling from news that the team will be moving to a 3-4 alignment under head coach Chan Gailey and new defensive coordinator George Edwards. Few facts are known at this point, but what we do know is that Buffalo isn’t anywhere close to being equipped to run a traditional 3-4, and that the front seven in particular will be subjected to a great deal of house cleaning.

Playing Bills GM - Volume I

  • Posted on February 20, 2010 at 5:01 pm

(Admitted hot head fan/blogger Joe Pinzone AKA “JoeFromNYC” has a blueprint to solve the Buffalo Bills woes.  Many won’t agree with his views-and we probably won’t either.  But they’re still interesting enough to publish.  This is the first in a series of moves he would like to see the Bills make to return to respectability)

It’s February and kind of a dead time around the Buffalo sports scene. The Sabres are on break and the Bills are a few weeks away from the kickoff to free agency. Sorry, but I don’t exactly have the energy to dissect the impact of losing Derek Fine or whose my favorite Buffalo Sabres player. So starting today, I will be dedicating a daily post to what I would do if I were the Bills General Manager. Now, this isn’t a series on predicting what I think the Bills will do. This is just what I would do if Ralph Wilson gave me the keys to his kingdom.
