YPSILANTI, Mich. – The Buffalo Bulls will be glad to get out of Michigan.
UB completed a two-game swing through the Wolverine State on Wednesday with its second straight loss, 65-46, to Eastern Michigan before 522 at the Convocation Center.
The loss, which followed UB’s 71-60 defeat at Western Michigan on Saturday, dropped Buffalo to 8-15 overall and 3-6 in the Mid-American Conference.
The Eagles (11-11, 4-4) came in averaging just 53.1 points per game, but scored 37 in the first half to take a four-point lead into the break.
UB cut the lead to 37-35 after a layup by Javon McCrea to open the second half, but the Eagles went on a 16-4 run over the next 9 minutes and UB never got within single digits again, scoring just 13 in the second half. The Bulls’ point total was just the second time all season they have been held under 50.
McCrea led UB with 15 points, while Will Regan added 12. Glenn Bryant led Eastern Michigan with 17 points.
The Bulls next host Northern Illinois at Alumni Arena at 1 p.m. Saturday.
