A jubilant UB women’s basketball team celebrates its 86-65 triumph over Florida State in the 2018 NCAA Tournament—a win that sent the Bulls to the Sweet 16 for the first time in school history. Indeed, last March was UB basketball’s finest hour. The men’s team won the MAC championship and beat heavily favored Arizona in the first round of the NCAA Tournament en route to a 27-9 record. The women knocked off favored South Florida and Florida State in the NCAAs before finishing with a 29-6 mark and a No. 21 ranking in the USA Today Coaches Poll, the highest ever attained by UB hoops in Division I. How good were these teams? Their combined 26-1 home record was the best in the nation. The Bulls’ future is bright, but 2018 will always stand out as something special.
