Ohio dismantles Buffalo 86-68

D.J. Cooper and Reggie Keely combined for 40 points and shot over 50 percent from the field.

It was a certain possibility that OHIO would storm out of the gates in MAC play and put a sacrificial lamb into the kiln to show everyone that, despite their rough nonconference, they were still the ones to mess with. And that's basically what happened. Buffalo has now been sacrificed to ye MAC gods, may it be an acceptable sacrifice.
