Junior guard Cierra Dillard continued her steady play this week as the Bulls were able to go 2-0 with wins over Miami (OH) and Ball State. Dillard finished off her week averaging 19.5 points, 6.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 3.5 steals as she led UB in scoring in both victories. In Wednesday's home win over Miami, Dillard willed the Bulls to victory as she posted a game-high 19 points, eight assists, six rebounds and three steals while connecting on three triples. On the road Saturday against 14-1 Ball State, Dillard had a huge first half for UB as she netted 14 points as she hit 4-of-6 three pointers through 20 minutes. With her first bucket of the second half, the Rochester native joined the 1,000 point club. Dillard finished off her team-best third 20-point game of the season as she netted 20 points, five assists, four steals and three rebounds across 33 minutes of work.

Harris was 7-of-10 from the floor, while adding two assists and three steals.  On Saturday, Harris tied his career high with 23 points in the 82-66 win over Miami.

He also added two assists and a steal. Harris is averaging 15.5 points and 6.8 rebounds this season in conference play.
