Buffalo Bulls defeat Robert Morris

Despite a rocky start which saw  the Colonials a 25-16 lead half way through the first the Bulls quickly rallied. After starting 0-2 against division one competition the Buffalo Bulls secured their first D1 win of the Bobby Hurley era.

They did it by outscoring Robert Morris 43-28 in the second half to pull away from what was a tie game at intermission. The Bulls put the game away on a 13-0 run which started at the 11 minute mark and ended with a 66-52 UB lead with six minutes remaining.

Javon McCrea collected yet another career double double as he led UB scorers with 18 points. The Bulls scoring was well rounded as five players in double figures. Jarryn Skeete added 15, and Jarod Oldham contributed 13 points, while Joshua Freelove and Will Regan had 12 and 10 points respectively.

The Bulls got all of their bench points from Shannon Evans and Sophomore Justin Moss. Evans finished with a career-best seven points, adding four rebounds, three assists and a steal, while Justin Moss added six points and six rebounds.

Despite the win the Bulls struggled at the line. Buffalo shot just 64% from the charity stripe. UB's shooting improved in the second half but it's been a sore spot throughout the early stages of the season. It's a critical flaw in UB's game this season and one which needs to be fixed to prevent this season from being labelled "a rebuilding year"

The Bulls remain home this Saturday afternoon when they host Delaware State at 2:00 pm.
