Six minutes into the game Kent led 10-9, but a bug run put the bulls up double digits, they would be up by more than 10 points the rest of the game.
While the Bulls led by double figures throughout the second half Kent did slowly chip away lead and outscored UB 45-39 in the second half. During the season UB has struggled to keep up their defensive inensity in the second half
On a final note the refs were brutal down the stretch. After the officals handed ub the ball to inbound Buffalo struck quick for two points. But the refs took them off the board as Kent was “not ready”. When UB coach Nate Oats spoke up they slapped Buffalo with a technical foul.
