Triple double, triple threat

Senior guard CJ Massinburg led a second-half rally Wednesday night with UB basketball’s second triple-double in school history, to help No.17-ranked Buffalo earn an 89-55 win over the Le Moyne Dolphins.

Massinburg was one third of Buffalo’s triangle threat against the Division II Dolphins, alongside fellow senior-star Bulls, guard Dontay Caruthers and forward Jeremy Harris.

The Bulls (8-0) led in rebounds, assists, steals, field goals and free-throw percentage, in what was a game they were expected to dominate.

The Dolphins went 8-of-12 from the perimeter, with Le Moyne junior guard Zay Jennings leading the game in scoring with 11.

Junior guard Davonta Jordan opened the half with a quick layup, then drove the ball in for a one-handed slam after a fast break to make it 42-37.

Caruthers’ ability to finish at the rim, Massinburg’s overall play and Harris on the perimeter made it so Le Moyne couldn’t last as the final ten minutes rolled on.
