This Week in Buffalo Sports 3/13/23

A rough end of the season for Bulls basketball, as both teams lost in the MAC Quarterfinal, with the women’s team losing a heartbreaker by one point in overtime.

At the MAC wrestling tournament, UB’s Michael Petite lost his first match, but then won his next three, finishing 4th overall in the 157-pound weight class; brother Marcus Petite lost his first and won his next two to finish 7th in the 165 class. Giuseppe Hoose went 4-2 to finish 6th in 184. And Sam Mitchell finished 3rd in the 197 class. Hoose will advance to this week’s NCAA Tournament as a #21 seed in the 184-pound bracket.

Last week also saw the NCAA Zone A Diving Championships. UB’s Victoria Franz placed 3rd and Tricia Arceri placed 14th in the Women 3 Meter Championship; Franz also played 3rd in the 1 Meter; teammate Marialis Kwak placed 12th.
