The Buccaneers and Lady Bucs had a tough introductory weekend to regular season action in the Liga Atletica Interuniversity (LAI), losing all three games played on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 31, and Feb. 1, on the road in Puerto Rico. The men lost a tough opener, falling 76-74 to the University of Puerto-Humacoa, when a shot went awry in the final seconds. Both squads took on University of Sacred Heart teams in Saturday action. The Lady Bucs endured a 72-36 loss, while the Buccaneers were overpowered by Sacred Heart, 99-76.
UVI fans get their first chance to see the Lady Bucs and Buccaneers in action at Friday’s 2014 Homecoming games when American University travels to the Sports and Fitness Center for the women’s game at 6:30 p.m. and the men’s matchup at 8:30.
