Buffalo survives scare from Central Michigan

Buffalo survives scare from Central Michigan

Ranked ninth nationally in scoring offense (82.1 ppg) and 14th in 3-point shooting (37.9) entering the game, Central Michigan was even more prolific against a UB defense that led the MAC in points allowed (63.2 ppg) and was fourth in the country in guarding the 3-point line (26 percent). But we ain't talking NIT to our team. And while the Bulls were looking for their third NCAA Tournament trip in four years, the Rockets were looking for their first since 1980.

"I don't want to do the two-step; one step in, one step out", she said. UB point guard Stephanie Reid had to sit out about six minutes in the middle of the second half when she banged her left hand.

Toledo scored 10 consecutive points with 15:41 left in the 1st Half, making the game 12-4 in favor of Toledo.

CMU landed the first big punch, and drilled six 3-pointers in the game's opening minutes.

Hemphill finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and four steals.

In the Rockets' 64-63 victory over Eastern Michigan on Friday, their leading scorer was guard Marreon Jackson with 26 points and five rebounds.

"We just kept continuing to work at it", said Moore. "When they adjusted for that, we started getting inside".

Central outrebounded Eastern 50-34 and outshot it 44.8 percent to 33.8 percent. The Bulls, who breezed through easy wins in the quarterfinals and semifinals, had no way to get consistent stops.

Markus Howard scored 23 points and Andrew Rowsey had 22 for Marquette (19-13).

The Musketeers (28-4) dominated in the second half on the Red Storm's home court at Madison Square Garden. Dillard and junior forward Courtney Wilkins went for a combined 18 points in the fourth. Micaela Kelly and Presley Hudson scored 26 points apiece, Tinara Moore and Reyna Moore had double-doubles and Central Michigan earned a berth in the NCAA Tournament with a 96-91 win over Buffalo in the Mid-American Conference championship game. But that reality leeched none of the exhilaration from the win for CMU.

The Eagles last played in MAC Championship in 1998 when Earl Boykins led the team to the NCAA Tournament.

"This is why you play", said Frost, who was named the tourney MVP after three straight double-doubles.
