Men's Basketball: Buffalo 30 - Akron 35 At The Half

Adam Hunger

The Buffalo Bulls came into Akron trying to keep their hopes for a bye to the semi finals alive but they sure did not play like it early. On the Other hand the Zips, who are in the fight of their lives for a quarter final bye, came in lighing up the score board.

After getting out to a 5-2 lead the Bulls went into a shell while Akron was content to shell Buffalo.

By the time Bobby Hurley and the Bulls knew what hit them it was 24-10 Akron and UB had tried to use two timeouts to stop the bleeding. Finally athte 12 minute Mark UB started their comeback. A long Buffalo Run brought the Bulls to within three and there after Akron found their footing and the two teams started to go back and forth.

To this point in the game UB has nothing going on from beyond the arc but that has not stopped the Bulls from trying. The Bulls are 0-8 from long range with their only points coming on Regan free throws following the first attempt of the game.

In other MAC action WMU is in a dog fight with NIU and should the Broncos lose it will let UB lock up a semi final bye if UB wins.
