Legette-Jack at her best come tour­na­ment time

The Buffalo News - - SPORTS - Mark Gaughan

Uni­ver­sity at Buf­falo women’s bas­ket­ball coach Fel­isha Leget­teJack has an un­canny knack of push­ing all the right but­tons come tour­na­ment time.

She did it four years ago when the UB women won the Mid-Amer­i­can Con­fer­ence tour­na­ment as a No. 8 seed. She did it again this sea­son in di­rect­ing the Bulls to a third NCAA Tour­na­ment berth in four years.

The Bulls are the 10th seed in the Albany Re­gion and will face seventh-seeded Rut­gers on Fri­day in Storrs, Conn.

On the way to the NCAA Tour­na­ment, FLJ di­rected an­other mas­ter­piece in UB’s semi­fi­nal up­set of top-seeded Cen­tral Michi­gan in Cleve­land.

“If you al­ways do what you’ve al­ways done, you al­ways get what you’ve al­ways got,” Leget­teJack ex­ulted after the 82-77 win against CMU. That’s her spin on the adage, “In­san­ity is do­ing the same thing over again and ex­pect­ing a dif­fer­ent re­sult.”

CMU ranked No. 11 in the na­tion
