UB women have plenty of time for team bonding on long road trip

Bulls play two key conference games during the trip starting Wednesday night at Ball State

AMHERST, N.Y. — Usually collegiate road trips aren't as long as the one the UB women's basketball team is on this week. The Bulls will spent six days away from home as they play at Ball State Wednesday night and at Kent State Saturday afternoon. 

Sophomore Adebola Adeyeye says being together that long will help continue to build that all important team chemistry. 

"I know road games are very hard to win but it unifies us together to be able to win those tough road games," she said.

While UB lost Cierra Dillard after last season another young woman from the Rochester area has stepped into the spotlight. Freshman Dyaisha Fair averages just over 23 points per game. Junior guard Hannah Hall said Fair's play "has been amazing."

UB is 12-4 overall and 3-2 in MAC play. Tip off time for Wednesday's game at Ball State is 7 p.m. Saturday's game at Kent State is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.
