UB's Polina Prokudina and CJ Massinburg named Athletes of the Week

UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO ATHLETICS

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Junior Polina Prokudina led the Bulls to a pair of wins this past weekend as she hit .423 over the two matches.  On Thursday night in a three-set win over Akron, Prokudina had 12 kills and just one error on 17 swings as she hit .647 in the dominating victory over the Zips.  On Saturday, Prokudina led the Bulls again as she 17 kills in a much needed win over Toledo, locking up a bye in the MAC Tournament for the Bulls.  

Senior CJ Massinburg started his final season off with a bang as he averaged 27.0 points and 11.0 rebounds in UB's two victories this weekend, including a huge upset at #13 West Virginia.  In the win over the Mountaineers, Massinburg exploded for 43 points, the second most in school history and the most ever by a Buffalo player in a road game.  Massinburg drilled nine three-pointers in the game, the third most for a UB player in school history. Massinburg became the first player to score 40 or more points against West Virginia since Kansas standout Andrew Wiggins in 2014.  In addition, he added 14 rebounds as he became just the eighth player in college basket since 2010 to have over 40 points and at least 14 rebounds in a game.  With his 54 points through the first two games, Massinburg also moved up to seventh place on UB's all-time scoring list.
