Buffalo Bulls vs Ohio Bobcats at the half

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bulls entered this contest knowing that a win would all but secure a top four seed in the conference. The way they played through the first six minutes of the game showed that Buffalo knew they needed this game more than Ohio did.

While the Ohio announcers were buys talking about lime green socks and throwing around insults to Alumni Arena the Bulls spent the first six minutes of the game building a 9 point lead. The Bobcats would bounce right back though. A few sloppy shots by UB led to Ohio rebounds and quick scores in transition which closed the score 14-16 at the U12 timeout.

Unfortunately for Ohio their comeback came through aggressive play which generated a lot of fouls.

One area the Cats were very successful at was containing Javon Mccrea. Through the first 15 minute of the game Ohio kept UB's leading scorer to 2 points on 1-5 shooting.

But while McCrea was locked down UB point Guard Jarrod Oldham was huge. Going 5-5 from the floor the Junior put up 11 points in the first half and Joshua Freelove drained a 3 as time in the half expired to give the senior 12 points while putting the Bulls ahead 42-24

UB hopes that the second half will go a lot like the first..
