BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — For only the second time this year the No. 14 UB Bulls came up short, falling to Northern Illinois 77-75 thanks to a buzzer-beater from Huskies forward Noah McCarty.
Senior guard Dante Thorpe led the way for Northern Illinois with 23 points while CJ Massinburg had 23 of his own, including a three-pointer with six seconds left to briefly tie things up.
Heartbreaking loss for UB after that shot from CJ Massinburg. They couldn’t hit anything from outside for most of the night and it cost them. With the loss they fall to 17-2 on the season and 5-1 in the MAC. No reason to panic for the Bulls @WKBW— Matthew Bové (@Matt_Bove) January 23, 2019
With the loss, the Bulls slip to 17-2 on the season and 5-1 in the MAC. UB travels to Kent State for a matchup with the Golden Flashes on Friday night.
