BASKETBALL EXCELLENCE FUND
The Basketball Excellence Fund has been established to provide ongoing and recurring, comprehensive support for our men’s and women’s basketball programs. Although we cannot join our coaches on the road while recruiting or draw up the game-winning play during a final time-out, we can still have a dramatic impact on the future of our men’s and women’s basketball programs. Additional funding will allow UB to build the financial foundation necessary to compete at the highest level.

“Choosing UB was the best decision I have ever made in my whole life. It’s really awesome to be able to get an education and play the sport that I love. I want to thank the donors for everything they give the athletes here at UB. A lot of us are given opportunities to come here that we wouldn’t have otherwise.”
