Players from years past returned to Alumni Arena in February for a weekend celebration of the 100th anniversary of Bulls basketball. Alumni from a range of class years faced off in a friendly “Blue vs. White” competition, with family and friends cheering from the stands. The next day, when the current Bulls took on Miami (Ohio)—winning 71-58, may we add—their predecessors were honored during a special halftime ceremony on court. In attendance were Benny Constantino, who played during the 1946-49 seasons, as well as former NBA notable and UB Athletics Hall of Famer Sam Pellom, who played for the Bulls from 1974 to 1978.
