The Bulls had a hot hand, shooting 57% from the floor and 47% from beyond three. CJ Buckets led UB with 26 point on a 59% shooting night.

UB also got huge contributions from Jeremy Harris (16), who made all four of his 3-point attempts, Nick Perkins (17), and Wes Clark (13).

WMU’s star, Thomas Wilder, did everything he could do to keep the Bronco’s in the game. He scored 34 points and was an impressive 10 of 17 from the field.

The Bulls built up a 12 point lead on a Massinburg 3 pointers with 1:45 left but sloppy play let the Broncos get back to within two scores (84-90) with 20 seconds left in the game.
