UB marketing is everywhere. It has the resources to do that. That's why they went with the whole "University of New York" campaign, or whatever it was.
It's not about the name UB, right now. It's about the reach to be on par with other schools, like UNM, that are synonymous with a region. If I'm 12 living in Amherst and a hockey fan, I'd like to see UB - who has a campus in Amherst and a well-known football and basketball team, even if they suck - than Canisius. It's like that in every state except for maybe Indiana.
tl;dr - Canisius is small and nobody cares about anything there, Buffalo is big and already a name.
UB's basketball arena - 6,100 capacity. 3,242 average attendance.
Doesn't look like their size and name do much to attract sell out crowds. Maybe they need a new marketing director to solidify this statewide reach.
I also considered going to St. Louis for the Jan2 game and likely would have gone the StubHub route as well.

No one has to pay 200 for any one regular season game
