Saturday, February 16th against Rochester
The Bison’s faced Rochester for the second time this season and once again they were just too much for us. The Bison’s lost 59-37 in this matchup. Rochester was too strong and played flawless.

Again, we made a late run in the fourth but it was not enough. We lost to Delaware by a score of 53-30.

2012 - 2013 Game Recaps With Coach Carmody:
February 12th vs. Falk School: Yesterday the Bison’s travelled to The Falk School for a game against their JV team. The Bison’s lost by a score of 49-31. This time we started out playing good basketball and were moving the ball well. We took an early lead at the start but Falk rallied back and was up 25-14 at halftime. In the second half, we struggled and became less of an offensive threat. Lu Reh’s absence from the line up impacted our defense as well as our substitution rotation. We still have yet to put together two good halves of basketball together this season.
Dustin Robinson had 18 points and 12 rebounds.
Baylen Oliver and Jacob Rhoades had 4 points each.
William Spencer had 3 points.
Cole Rodgers had 2 points.

February 7th vs. The Gow School: Yesterday, the Bison’s travelled to The Gow School and faced their JV team. The Ravens of Gow defeated the Bison’s by a score of 53 to 35. ST. Mary’s started out cold and struggled with shooting. We had many opportunities but could not connect. Defensively… we were caught trying to steal balls in the back court and Gow was able to connect on many long passes for easy buckets. The first half ended with the Bison’s down 31-12. In the second half, Baylen Oliver and Dustin Robinson began to find each other and we started to make our shots. We made another late run but it wasn’t enough to get out of the first half hole we dug for ourselves.
Dustin Robinson lead all scorers with 23 points and had 13 rebounds.
Baylen Oliver recorded a season high 8 points and had 4 assists.
Jacob Rhoades and Lu Reh had 2 points each.
Our record is 0-11
January 24th vs. West Seneca Christian: Yesterday the Bison’s hosted West Seneca Christian. In our last match up against West Seneca Christian we were blown out of the gym. Yesterday was a chance at redemption. As usual this season, we started out slow and struggled. We had many opportunities but could not find the hoop. Lu Reh continued to be a terror on defense and came up with many steals that led to break away lay ups but… could not finish and get a bucket. We shot poorly in the first half and trailed 21-9 at the half.
In the second half we played much better defensively and neither team could score. In the fourth quarter, Baylen Oliver and Dustin Robinson connected on some pretty plays and started to get into a rhythm. Dustin Robinson scored 10 points in the fourth quarter but in the end it was not enough and we lost 28-21.
Dustin Robinson lead all scorers again with 19 points and 7 rebounds.
Lu Reh scored 2 points and had 5 steals.
January 17th vs. Christian Academy of WNY: The boys team traveled to North Tonawanda to take on CAWNY(Christian Academy of WNY). We lost by a score of 53-37. CAWNY shot the lights out in their home gym and connected on 10 three point shots in the game. The Bison’s struggled against their defense and had trouble finding shots in the first half. We went into half time down 33-10.
The second half saw CAWNY hit 4 more three’s at the start and they took a big lead. Lu Reh and Dustin Robinson had seen enough and ignited a fire defensively. Lu Reh pressed their guards and caused trouble for them by deflecting many of their passes. Dustin Robinson and Baylen Oliver were able to work together and started to produce some offense. It was a tough game to watch and even tougher to play in. What was most impressive was the character demonstrated by the team as they refused to give up.
Dustin Robinson led all scorers with 27 points and 14 rebounds
Baylen Oliver had 5 points
Lu Reh had 4 points and 5 steals
William Spencer had 1 point

The guys were still recovering from illness and got off to a slow start. We did not look to score when we had the chance and committed too many turnovers.
We shot well from the field and foul line, however….we did not shoot often! We trailed at half time 24- 16 to West Seneca. Our third quarter struggled and we dug ourselves into yet another hole.

January 8th vs. New Life Christian: The Biosn’s took on New Life Christian yesterday in their first game of the New Year. Like most of the area, the effects of the flu are being felt and noticed. We took to the court without Dustin Robinson our main gun. The result was a 46-18 loss to New Life Christian. The absence of Robinson forced others to step up and play at a level they have not played at before. In the first half we struggled to find ourselves and created little offense. The shots were there but we missed Dustin and his offensive presence on the court. The second half we played better but still were outmatched.
Lu Reh had a season high 8 points.
Baylen Oliver finished with 2 points but came out in the second half and started to play with some emotion and desire!

December 20th vs. Falk School: The Bions’s played The Falk School yesterday afternoon and lost by a score of 38-30. It was another close game and we continue to improve. We started out slow again and dug ourselves in a hole. We still are trying to find balance offensively but played great defense yesterday! Lu Reh was all over the court and broke up many passes and had seven steals. Baylen Oliver played with great composure and control on the point. In the second and third quarters we struggled to connect with points. We were outscored 17-8 in those two quarters but managed to bounce back in the fourth and outscored Falk 15 -8. Our late run was exciting but not enough as we came up empty.
Dustin Robinson led all scorers again with 22 points.
