2018 MAC Basketball Preview: Toledo Rockets at Buffalo Bulls

An interesting cross division match-up

NCAA Basketball: Buffalo at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Both the Toledo Rockets and the Buffalo Bulls enter tonight’s contest at 8-5 on the season.


Game Details

  • When: Tuesday, Jan. 2nd, 2018
  • Where: Alumni Arena, Amherst, New York
  • Watch: CBS Sports Network
  • Listen: ESPN 1520 Buffalo/UTrockets.com
  • Line: Buffalo -6

Players to Watch

Tre’Shaun Fletcher, Toledo: The 6’7 transfer from Colorado is averaging 17.4 points and 8.8 rebounds per contest.

Nate Navigato, Toledo: Shooting a blistering 44% from beyond the arch.

Nick Perkins, Buffalo: The 6’8 big body from Ypsilanti can also shoot from outside.

Wes Clark, Buffalo: The Mizzou transfer scored 27 his last time out for the Bulls.


Prediction

Toledo has been playing good defense as of late and they are the type of long team that can cause the Bulls some problems. Buffalo was already a good team that added the services of Wes Clark, so they are certainly a contender in the East. I believe the Bulls will be able to pull out the win, but it will be close, 78-76.
