Buffalo's CJ Massinburg had a career-night, scoring 36 point, but it wasn't enough to slow down Ohio as the Bobcats won in dominating fashion, 94-75. The visiting Bobcats got off to a quick start and shot 56.0% from three for the game. The loss was UB's second straight as it fell to 14-11 and 7-5 in conference play.
