Not only is buffalo playing well with wins in eight of ten, they are one game out of first with three to play so anything is possible. The Bulls come in off of a crucial 69-64 victory at Ohio on Wednesday as they built a 15 point lead at the break before fending off a late Bobcats charge. The Bulls 43% was just enough as 14 Bobcats giveaways had a hand in eleven more looks at the basket which provided the final margin. Leading score Javon McCrea tossed in 15 points and snared seven boards followed by a 14 point effort from Josh Freelove while Jarod Oldham and Will Regan added 13 and ten points with eight yanks between them.
Buffalo thrashed the Redhawks the first time around and it's alway tough to ask a team to win by double figures twice. If the Bulls get cranked up on offense they will easily do it here...
