Buffalo coach believes Bulls have experience advantage over Kentucky
Buffalo Bulls coach Nate Oats clearly thinks his team has a good shot at pulling another upset in the NCAA Tournament.
Even though the Bulls are underdogs against the talented and athletic Kentucky Wildcats, Oats thinks the Bulls have one major advantage — upperclassman experience.
Buffalo coach Nate Oats: "We're experienced, they're inexperienced. No disrespect, but facts are facts. You want me to tell them they're not freshmen? They're freshmen." Point being, his hope is Bulls' veterans can take advantage of UK youngsters' "lapses."

Neither team is particularly rich in NCAA Tournament experience, but Oats is clearly trying to put something in his players’ heads. They certainly looked composed when blowing Arizona out, and given the quotes from one of their players, they’re clearly not afraid of the challenge that Kentucky will present.
