Notes: The two top teams in the Mid-American Conference East Division will meet in this nationally televised contest. … Buffalo has the best record in the division and is tied with Toledo for the best record in the league. … BG has won two in a row and four of its last five, and it would be the fourth seed if the MAC Tournament began today. … The Bulls have won the last seven meetings of these two teams, and the Falcons have not won at Alumni Arena since Jan. 8, 2011. … Buffalo, the preseason favorite to win the league title, lead the MAC in scoring offense (83.7 ppg) and scoring margin (plus-7.1 points per game). … Junior guard C.J. Massinburg averages 17.3 points per game, making him one of four Bulls to score in double figures. … BG freshman Justin Turner, who had made just 28.2 percent of his shots in his previous six games, went 11-for-13 on the way to 29 points in the Western Michigan win Tuesday. … Junior Antwon Lillard, who has averaged 9.7 points and 4.4 rebounds per game this season, is averaging 10.7 points and 4.8 rebounds in MAC games. … After this contest the Falcons return to the Stroh Center to host Akron Tuesday.
