Notes: The Falcons will finish the regular season at Buffalo, looking to snap a two-game losing streak heading into the Mid-American Conference tournament. … BG knocked off the Bulls 74-68 at the Stroh Center on Feb. 2 and has won the last two meetings after losing the previous three. … The Falcons can finish no higher than ninth in the MAC standings and will play a first-round road game in the league tournament. … Buffalo has clinched no worse than third in the standings and will automatically advance to Cleveland. … The Bulls also can clinch their first outright MAC East Division title with a win. … Buffalo saw a four-game winning streak snapped with a loss at Akron on Tuesday. … Senior Javon McCrea leads the Bulls in scoring (18.4 points) and rebounding (9.9 rebounds). … Bowling Green’s Richaun Holmes needs just three blocked shots to tie the school record of 159 by Otis Polk. … Senior Cameron Black is third on that listed with 152 career blocks. … Junior Anthony Henderson has 66 steals this season, tied for the sixth-best mark in BG history, while Jehvon Clarke is just outside the top 10 in that category with 59. … Bowling Green needs one more win to reach 1,300 victories in the program’s 99-year history.
