The defense did their part with the Bobcats limited to 41.5% but UB never found the shooting touch at 36% with a 4-22 performance from beyond the arc doing them in. Xavier Ford and Justin Moss each tossed in eleven points and combined for 12 rebounds but Moss turned the ball over a game high six times. Raheem Johnson followed with ten points and five yanks while the tandem of Shannon Evans and Rodell Wigginton netted eight points apies with Wiggington snaring seven rebounds.
