The Lady 716ers at the 716ers season opener

Pro basketball has been back in Buffalo for a few years now but this year, they've got a fully-fledged dance team to cheer them on. Led by Jills alum Loren K (2009-12) and Bandettes alum LaToya (2015), they make community appearances and perform at all home Buffalo 716ers games at the Flickinger Center.

Saturday was the regular season opener for the 716ers and featured a tribute to the Buffalo Braves teams that represented Buffalo in the NBA  in the 1970s. Former Braves Ernie DiGregorio, Emmette Bryant and Gus Gerrard were on hand for festivities all weekend. I got there about a half an hour before tipoff and shortly after getting my ticket, some of the Lady 716ers came by, accompanied by Loren. After catching up with her for a few minutes, it was off to work getting photos, after catching up with LaToya for a few minutes. After getting photos of everyone, I went in to get a good seat for the game. Shortly before tipoff, I had a pair of beauties take seats nearby in the forms of Jennifer and Syidah of the Bandettes.
The Lady 716ers in action

The 716ers took an early lead in the game and never looked back, with the Lady 716ers performing at 1st intermission and a few minutes into the 2nd half. Halftime was filled with performances from the 716ers Street Crew and the 716ers Kids dance team as well as a guest performance by dancers from the King Center Charter School.

Coming up next for the Lady 716ers, the 716ers are back in action on January 9th at 7pm when the Jamestown Jackals invade the Flickinger Center.
A few notes of interest.
