TOLEDO, Ohio | No. 25 Buffalo shakes off poor start, beats Toledo 88-82
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Nick Perkins matched his career high with 26 points — hitting four 3-pointers in the second half — to help No. 25 Buffalo beat Toledo 88-82 on Friday night.
The Bulls (22-3, 10-2 Mid-American Conference) fell behind 10-0 and 17-4 in the first half, but Toledo (20-5, 8-4) never came all that close to delivering a knockout blow. Buffalo star CJ Massinburg picked up three fouls in the first half and finished with only 14 points, but the Bulls calmly worked their way back after their poor start.
