UB Bulls fans now have a way to show the world they “BULLieve” in the UB men’s and women’s basketball teams as they face off today and tomorrow in the Big Dance.

Bulls fans can show their UB pride — and their horns up — by updating their Facebook cover photo with a NCAA basketball and UB-themed photo frame.

With Victor E. Bull leading the charge, UB basketball fans across the world are encouraged to cheer on the teams as the sixth man and share photos of themselves or others with their horns up.

The photo frame can be used on other social media accounts as well, including Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. And if fans tag their image with the #UBDancing hashtag, UB will give them a shoutout to the rest of the Bulls Nation.

The UB men’s basketball team returns to the Big Dance for the second consecutive year to take on third-seed Miami at 6:50 p.m. today in the first round in Providence, R.I.

The UB women’s team — which reached the tournament for the first time in program history — will face third-seed Ohio State at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow in Columbus, Ohio.

Bulls fans who aren’t travelling to Providence or Columbus can join other UB supporters at any number of watch parties in Western New York and beyond.
