BUFFALO – Jayvon Graces knocked down seven 3-pointers and scored a career-high 26 points as No. 25 Buffalo blew away Ohio 114-67 in a Mid-American Conference basketball game Tuesday night.

Graves was a perfect 6 of 6 in the first half, and Buffalo finished 19 of 33 from long range. The Bulls led 52-27 at halftime and then scored 62 points in the second half. They shot 56.9 percent overall, including 64.7 percent after halftime.

C.J. Massinburg finished with 23 points, Jennathan Williams had 13 points and eight rebounds, and Montrell McRae scored 11 points with seven boards. Jeremy Harris, Dontay Caruthers and Nick Perkins recorded 9 points apiece.

Jason Carter led the Bobcats with 16 points, while Doug Taylor had 14 points and Teyvion Kirk scored 10 points in Ohio’s sixth straight loss.

The Bobcats hung in the game early, trailing 19-13 nearing the midway point in the first half. The Bulls scored seven straight points – all by Graves, including a pair of 3-pointers – to double up the Bobcats, and after a Carter dunk, Graves struck two more times from deep to make it 32-15.

After going to the bench for a while, Graves connected on another 3-pointer to make it 44-20 with 3:31 left in the first half. His final 3-pointer of the half came with 36 seconds left and gave Buffalo a 52-27 advantage at the break.

An early 7-0 run in the second half gave the Bulls a 61-31 lead, and they scored eight in a row to go up 73-39 with 13:49 remaining. Graves’ final 3-pointer of the game put Buffalo over the 100-point mark, making it 102-56 with 5:43 left.

While Buffalo knocked down 19 3-pointers, Ohio attempted just 11, making three. The Bobcats’ free throw woes continued as they went just 12 of 23. The Bulls won the rebounding battle 48-27.

Ohio hosts Bowling Green at 6:30 p.m. Friday at The Convo.
