OXFORD, Ohio — Blake Hamilton put up 22 points, grabbed nine rebounds, dished out four assists and made four steals to lead Buffalo to a 77-60 win over Miami (Ohio) Tuesday night.

The victory, coming on the heels of a 74-61 victory over Central Michigan Saturday, gives Buffalo (10-8, 3-2 MAC) back-to-back wins for the first time since mid-December. The Bulls extended Miami's losing streak to eight games.

The RedHawks took a 32-30 advantage at intermission, but Buffalo caught fire in the second half. Hamilton drilled a 3-pointer 10 seconds into the period to spark a 7-0 run that put the Bulls in front. Miami got within three at 46-43, but Willie Connor answered with a 3-pointer to spark a 12-0 run.

C.J. Massinburg added 13 points and Ikenna Smart grabbed 10 rebounds for the Bulls.

Eric Washington was the lone RedHawk (6-12, 0-5) to reach double-figure scoring with 13 points.
