The University of Buffalo recently fired head basketball coach Reggie Witherspoon.

He was the first African American named head coach of a varsity sports team in any Western New York suburban school district.

His 14th season at the school ended with a loss in the Mid-American Conference tournament.

The Bulls finished the season with a 14-20 record, which ended a run of four straight winning seasons.

Witherspoon had a record of 198-228 at Buffalo and is tied for second on the school’s career wins list.

His best records at Buffalo included:

23-10 in 2004-05, 21-12 in 2008-09, 20-13 in 2010-11 and 19-9 in 2011-12.

When he arrived at Buffalo, the basketball program was one of the worst in the country on the NCAA Division I level.

Guyer is the fourth member of the Bulls to win an IL weekly award this season (Alexander Torres, April 11-17; Justin Ruggiano, May 2-8; Felipe Lopez, May 16-22.

In six games during the week, Guyer hit .409 with a double, triple and home run, 7 RBI’s (3rd in IL), six runs scored (Tied-1st), and a pair of stolen bases (Tied-2nd).

Guyer produced two three-hit games during the week, including a 3-for-5, 4-RBI, 3-run effort at Gwinnett.

Guyer has been one of the League’s best hitters this season, with the proof being his .323 average (5th in the IL), .540 slugging percentage (4th), and 47 runs scored (Tied-4th).

Guyer, 25, was the Chicago Cubs Minor League Player of the Year in 2010 with Double-A Tennessee. The Southern League All-Star was traded to Tampa Bay in the offseason as part of the trade involving Matt Garza.

Guyer is a native of West Chester, Pennsylvania.
