AMHERST, N.Y. (WKBW) — The win streak at home remains in tact for the UB men's basketball team, as they topped Akron 77-64 on Tuesday evening. It was the program's 25th consecutive win at Alumni Arena. That win streak is currently second in the nation, only behind Houston.

The Bulls trailed the Zips by one point at the half and were never able to pull away until the final few minutes of regulation. Nick Perkins came off the bench and scored a game-high 25 points. CJ Massinburg finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds while Jayvon Graves added 14 points in the win.

The 21st ranked Bulls are now 25-3 on the season and 13-2 in Mid-American Conference play. They're on the road this Saturday when they take on Miami (OH) at 2 p.m.
