Buffalo on Loss: We didn’t get the ending we wanted

Uncategorized

TULSA, Okla. — Texas Tech dominated the second half and cruised to a 78-58 win over Buffalo in a second-round West Region game in the NCAA Tournament.

Buffalo coach Nate Oats previously said he’d be ok with his team losing if they left everything they had on the court.  Oats told reporter Josh Reed he didn’t feel that happened. 

“This is disappointing because we didn’t play our best but that doesn’t take away from our season,” Oats said.  “I don’t know if I will ever coach a 32-win team again.”

Nick Perkins had 17 points and 10 rebounds and CJ Massinburg added 14 points for Buffalo, which had its 13-game win streak snapped.

Tech had two big runs in the first half and dominated in the second. Buffalo didn’t score its first field goal in the second half until more than seven minutes in.
