Oats has Buffalo shedding basketball's mid-major label

AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo coach Nate Oats was so caught up in the possibility of facing his former boss in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the significance of the West Region's top-seeded team initially escaped him on Selection Sunday.

"You know, I didn't even think about that," Oats said when reminded his Mid-American Conference Bulls were placed in the same bracket as Gonzaga. "My wife's always said I need to call Mark Few and talk to him."

Why wait, when there's the off-chance for the two coaches to trade notes should their teams meet in the Elite Eight.
