The University at Buffalo may be done dancing but Western New York is still celebrating historic seasons from both the men's and women's basketball teams.

As the Lady Bulls return from their Sweet 16 loss to the defending NCAA champions, the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, they're coming home to praise from the entire community. The West Seneca Police Department even posted this picture of its celebration of the UB's achievement to its Facebook page. 

The Lady Bulls are the first team from UB ever to make it to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament. They fell, 79-63 in Saturday's game in Albany. South Carolina goes on to take on UConn tonight for a chance to head to the Final Four.
