No. 17 Buffalo rolls past Division II Le Moyne 89-55

AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) — In wins over Arizona in last year's NCAA Tournament and at West Virginia earlier this season, Buffalo learned what it takes to pull off an upset.

Dontay Caruthers scored 20 points and reserve Nick Perkins had 18, helping Buffalo (8-0) continue its best start since the 1930-31 season.

Le Moyne coach Patrick Beilein said he hopes his team learned a lesson from the way Buffalo played over the final 20 minutes.

Buffalo: Ranked in the AP Top 25 for the first time in program history, the Bulls improved to 15-0 against lower-level opponents since moving up to Division I for the 1992-93 season.

This was the first time Patrick Beilein coached in the area where his father grew up, and he estimated he had about 30 family members in the crowd.

Buffalo will make the 90-minute trip to St. Bonaventure on Saturday to face the only team that beat the Bulls on their home floor last season.
