BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo men's basketball team will host Milwaukee of the Horizon League on Saturday night as part of BracketBusters weekend. Tipoff is slated for 7:00 pm at Alumni Arena.
Buffalo enters the game with a record of 15-9 overall and a 7-5 conference mark. The Bulls are looking to snap a two-game losing skid and will be trying to get back to their winning ways at home where they dropped just their third game of the season against Ohio on Tuesday night.
Milwaukee (16-11, 11-5 Horizon) comes into Alumni Arena winners of seven straight. The Panthers are coming off a 79-76 win over conference leader Valparaiso on Wednesday night. Milwaukee is led by Anthony Hill who is averaging 14.9 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.
This will be the second trip of the year to Western New York for the Panthers. Milwaukee won at Niagara, 90-73, back on November 17. Milwaukee also has wins over Bowling Green, Youngstown State, Green Bay and Butler on the season.
This will be the fourth meeting between the schools with the Bulls winning the previous three. The teams last played during the 1977-78 season.
