In only the second game of the season, Kentucky has its hands full with Buffalo and familiar foe Bobby Hurley. The Bulls took a 38-33 lead into halftime.
Buffalo came out aggressive, pushing the ball in transition to get some good looks early. Defensively, they were physical inside against the Kentucky bigs, and they weren’t afraid to go at the lengthy frontline on the offensive end either, as evident by Justin Moss’ one-handed slam over Willie Cauley-Stein, the 7-foot shot blocker. That highlight gave Buffalo a 30-25 lead with 6:20 to go in the first half.
