Buffalo Bulls

2012-13: 14-20 (7-9 MAC); lost to Kent State 70-68, MAC quarterfinals
In-conference offense: 1.04 points per possession (4th)
In-conference defense: 1.06 points allowed per possession (10th)

After a 14-20 season, Buffalo athletic director Danny White fired longtime coach Reggie Witherspoon, a fixture in Western New York hoops for more than 20 years. Witherspoon's replacement is Bobby Hurley. The former Duke guard spent the past several years as an assistant on his brother's teams at Wagner and Rhode Island. This is his first head-coaching job.
