– Experience vs. Top Dogs

The Bulls are no strangers to big games like they’ll have on Friday, as despite playing in the MAC Conference, they have squared off against two of the best teams in college. The Bulls were one of the few teams to outplay the Kentucky Wildcats for one half this season, as they held a lead against the nation’s No.1 team before losing 71-52 on the road.

Buffalo has also gone toe-to-toe with the Wisconsin Badgers on the road this season. On December 28th, the Bulls played a close game against another No.1 seed in the tournament, as they lost 68-56.

The Bulls may not have been victorious against either Kentucky or Wisconsin, but that experience is valuable come tournament time. Those two games will play a big factor in the confidence of the Bulls on Friday afternoon.
