CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) Ranked in the Top 25 for the first time in school history, Buffalo showed its staying power with another road win.
Montell McRae and Jeremy Harris each scored 11 points and No. 25 Buffalo pulled away for a 62-53 victory at Southern Illinois on Monday night.
"I talked to our guys about being a high-character team," Bulls coach Nate Oats said. "We could be really immature and come in with a poor attitude. After we got all the accolades and everything, how are we going to come in and respond to it? I thought they responded pretty well."
