Half Time Update - Buffalo 48 - Akron 41

New, 2 comments
Adam Hunger

A good start by Buffalo who was not able to build a crippling lead on Akron but on this night they were able to out play their opponents during the last eight minutes of the half.

Solid play by Joshua "Three-Love" Freelove has forced the Zips to get a bit softer in the middle and that has opened things up for Javon McCrea who, after a slow(ish) start leads all Scorers with 14 points.

With the exception of about a minute half way through the first the Bulls have either led or been tied for the lead throughout the game. A late run by Buffalo pushed their lead to six points at the half.

About the only area of concern for UB right now is free throw shooting, which started off weak, and turnovers where they are behind Akron 3-1.
