It was a gut wrenching game for the Bengals Saturday against Oswego. Midway through the first half the Bengals held a 25-9 lead and went into halftime up 33-26.  It was yet another game that the Bengals could not hold onto the lead in the second half. Though the Bengals at points were up big, they end up losing to Oswego, 69-68.

Oswego shot the ball lights out in the second half (56 percent) and kept the pressure on the Bengals. Buffalo State wilted under the pressure as Oswego took a three-point lead with two minutes left. With a one-point deficit, a three point attempt for the win with five second left fell short and sent the Bengals into the locker room with the agony of defeat.

Buffalo State struggled from the 3-point line again as they shot 6 for 22 (27 percent). Mike Henry was the team’s leading scorer with 18 points. Nico McLean had another off shooting game chipping in 15 points on 6 for 16 shooting. Jordan Glover had his second straight double-digit scoring output with 13 points.

The Bengals clinched a playoff spot with this loss, however. It is undetermined if they will be the five or six seed in the SUNYAC. With one game left, they will look to enter to playoffs on a high note.

The Bengals will host Fredonia Saturday, Feb. 18 for Senior Day in what will be their last home game for their college careers.
