Posted at 8:33 AM, Mar 17, 2016

Thursday is like a national holiday for sports fans across the country, especially Bulls fans.

The University at Buffalo Men’s basketball team is back in the Big Dance as a No. 14 seed taking on the 3rd-seeded Miami Hurricanes.

UB is the heavy underdog as few are expecting the team to win Thursday night.

The Bulls’ opponent, Miami, is one of the best teams in the country - ranked 11th overall in the nation.

Bulls Head Coach Nate Oats knows what his team is up against while guard Blake Hamilton has a plan for when game time arrives later tonight.

“We got to enjoy the moment but play like a regular game. You can’t put too much pressure on yourself,” said Hamilton.

7 Eyewitness News will have coverage all day at the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island leading up to the game.
