Game Recap 

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

The Bisons took on The Falk School this afternoon.  This was the last game for The Herd before the 57th ESDAA Division II Tournament which will be hosted at St. Mary’s.  The Bisons were pumped up and came out with lots of energy.  We had many opportunities but struggled to find the rim on offense.  The Bisons played from behind for the first 8 minutes and trailed 12-8 to Falk.  Slowly in the second quarter, the Bisons managed to chip away at the lead.  Nick Barrus and Kassim Kassim were applying pressure on defense and caused many turnovers.  The Bisons took the lead with 3 minutes remaining in the second quarter.  Falk struggled and only managed to score 3 points in the second quarter.  The Bisons went into halftime up by a score of 23-15.  The second half was a stampede as the Bisons applied pressure and outscored Falk 39-10 in the half and won 62-25.  Christopher Martin led all scorers with 20 points and 9 rebounds.  Christian Lawrence had 12 points and 5 steals.  Nick Barrus had 10 points and 9 steals and 9 assists.  Adnan Abdi had 8 points and  both Kassim Kassim and Isa Habeeb finished with 6 points each.

Our record is 7-5….next game is against West Virginia on Friday night at 8pm in the first round of the ESDAA Tournament.

The Bisons faced off against the Ravens of The Gow School this afternoon. The Bisons were able to compete with The Ravens for the first 16 minutes and kept it close. They trailed Gow 22-19 going into half time.  The second half proved too much for the Bisons however.  Gow connected on several 3 point shots and The Herd played tentative defensively allowing Gow to coast to the win....42-29.

 

Our record is 6-5....next game is Feb. 14th against Falk@SMSD.

The Bisons travelled to Rome, NY to face the NYSSD Trojans.  The Bisons started slow after the 3 ½ hr bus ride down. The Bisons lacked hustle and played very soft defensively.  They won the first quarter 13-5.  Rome worked hard and used the home court to their advantage.  They managed to stay in the game and were not afraid to drive.  The Bisons were up by a score of 26-13 after 16 minutes.  At half time, Coach LeRoy gave The Herd a motivational talk and told them to come out in the second half in a stampede.  The Bisons went on a run and outscored the Trojans 21-12 in the second half and went on to win the game 47-25… the final.

 

Nick Barrus led all scorers with 18 points and 5 steals.  Christopher Martin (back from Injured Reserved) scored 9 points.  Isa Habeeb had 6 points and 15 rebounds.  Christian Lawrence had  6 points.  Kassim Kassim and Adnan Abdi each had 4 points.

 

Overall record is 6-4.  Next game is Feb.7th @ The Gow School.

The Bisons travelled to Yorkshire, NY to face the Lions of Central Baptist. They returned to Buffalo, NY with a 44-42 overtime victory!  This was a unique game from the start as there was only one official for the game.  Faced with a tough task at hand, the Bisons and the official did the best they could in Lion country.  There were many lead changes during the course of the contest.  It was a physical, emotional and action packed game that left both teams exhausted afterwards.  Christian Lawrence led all scorers with 15 points and 7 rebounds.  Nick Barrus had 14 points and connected on 3 three pointers. Isa Habeeb had 13 points and 8 rebounds. Kassim Kassim chipped in 2 points.

 

Our record is 4-4 and our next game is Thursday, February 2nd at NYSSD/Rome.

Thursday, Janaury 26, 2017

This afternoon the Bisons took on New Life Christian of Olean, NY.  The Bisons were outmatched in the height department but were ready for the challenge.  New Life went out and took the lead and maintained it for most of the first.  The Bisons scored 4 points in the last minute and were trailing 10-6 after the first quarter.  New Life came alive in the second quarter and capitalized on their height and outside shooting.  The Bisons showed balance on offense and Nick Barrus hit a long range three pointer.  The Bisons trailed 22- 15 after two quarters.  The start of the third quarter was in the Bisons favor.  The Bisons had 5 players score in the third quarter and cut the lead to 4 points.  Kassim Kassim, who was playing great defense took an inadvertent elbow to the nose with 2:15 left in the third and was forced out of the game until we could get the bleeding to stop.  New Life became hot, hitting three consecutive three pointers and took the lead and never looked back.  The Bisons lost by a final of 49-34.

Overall record…3-4….next game is Monday, Jan. 30th @ Central Baptist.

The Bisons took on the Wildcats of RSD this evening.  The Wildcats headed home east on the I-90 with a victory.  The final score was 39-23.  The Bisons struggled in the first half (1 for 17 shooting) and could not find the basket.  The Bisons lacked balance with scoring and struggled with turnovers.  Isa Habeeb led the Bisons with 12 points. The Bisons were without guard Christopher Martin and the change in the lineup caused issues on the offensive and defensive side of the game.

 

Record…3-2…next game is Thursday, Jan. 19th against Park JV

 

Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The Bison took on the Amherst Christian Panthers this evening in Gallagher Gym.  This was the first action the herd has seen since the holiday break.  The Bison were anxious to get on the court and were ready to do battle with the Panthers.  The Bison were without Christopher Martin(upper body injury) and Givon Blackwell(unhealthy scratch).  They knew it would be a tough battle with only 1 substitute.  The Panthers took the early lead in the first quarter and lead 14-8 after the first eight minutes.  The Bison chipped away and would not give up and went into halftime trailing 23 -14.  Christian Lawrence was scrappy and worked hard on the offensive boards in the first half.  The start of the second half was  slow but the Bison managed to get into a rhythm offensively and made better passes.  Isa Habeeb and took charge on offense and Nick Barrus hit a buzzer ending third quarter shot from beyond half court…ending the third with the Bison trailing 39-26.  In the fourth, the Bison rallied late but were not able to pull out a victory and lost by a final score of 48-38.

Record…3-1….next game is 01/12 when we host the I-90 Classic against Rochester School for the Deaf.

The Bisons herd migrated to Rochester yesterday to take on the Wildcats of Rochester School for the Deaf.  This was the season opener for the Bisons and we knew facing our I-90 rivals would be no easy task.  St. Mary’s jumped out in the first quarter and took a 10-2 lead.  Nick Barrus and Isa Habeeb controlled the tempo and flow of the game.  Christian Lawrence played solid defense and kept the Wildcats off the boards.  In the second quarter, the  Wildcats managed to chip away at our lead and get back into the game.  The Bisons went into halftime with a 18-14 lead.  RSD came out in the third quarter and connected on their shot attempts as well as managed to get the Bisons into foul trouble.  Habeeb had to sit early in the third quarter when he picked up his 3rd foul. Ryan Brzezinkski came in off the bench and used his size and gave us valuable minutes.  The Wildcats press was tough for us to stop with Habeeb on the bench and RSD outscored us 17-6 in the 3rd quarter.  The Bisons went into the 4th quarter with a 7 point deficit.  Coach Le Roy told the Bisons to remain composed and positive and we had a chance to get back the lead.  Kassim Kassim turned up the heat on defense and Barrus and Christopher Martin each hit key 3 pointers as momentum shifted in the Bisons favor.  The Bisons took the lead with 1:30 left in the game and were able to hold off the Wildcats and walked off the court victorious….beating RSD 36-34.

Record….1-0

Our next game is Dec. 13th against Falk JV.
