Buffalo Bulls down Kent State to advance to Semi Finals

Yesterday Stephanie Reid was named second team all MAC. Today she showed that, perhaps, they should have put her on the first team.

Reid notched a double-double, scoring 22 points and adding 11 assists. Behind her effort and Cierra Dillard who scored 16 points, 9 rebounds, and added five steals, UB weathered a strong start by Kent, blowing the game open in the third quarter so secure the 72 to 50 win.

The Bulls defense was strong all game long, UB forced 26 turnovers, many of which resulted in fast break points.

Kent played strong in the paint, out rebounding UB early, to take 16-14 after the first quarter. The second quarter played out much the same way until the Bulls used a quick burst to take a five point lead into the half.

It was in the third quarter that UB blew the game open with a 22-4 run. Kent was able to gather themselves before the fourth quarter but the damage was done.
