Over the course of the final six minutes of the first half UB scored 25 points, taking a 56-41 lead into the break. Early in the second half Ohio closed the gap to 12 points, but that’s as close as they got.

Nick Perkins scored 21 points, Dontay Caruthers poured in 19 more, in all, 12 different Bulls scored on the night.

Buffalo’s last home game remaining is coming up on Tuesday against Akron. It’s senior night ( Wes Clark, Ikenna Smart, and Gabe Agorioge ) and UB can get a school record 14th home win. A win would also seal the MAC regular season title for Buffalo.
